The new word is (was...since it's been well over a week now...) YOW. What??? I thought maybe it was some kind of Aussie slang since Emily is from Australia. But she kindly explained it to mean Your Own Word...We got to pick this week's word!!!
Well, a thousand words jumped around for possibilities but a picture of a little girl looking out a window I found in a magazine I was tearing through caught my attention and so I went from there. Then I got a catalog from anthropologie and they kindly left a model out on one of the pages so I could use it as my background page (the tree paper). I also used up one of the left-over paint chips cut it into a heart and painted my favorite bird on top. Ribbon is tied to painted & now chipped washers (anyone have any suggestions to the best way to glue metal down on paper??? still need to do that...) and everything is aged with brown shoe polish.
I picked the word WONDER for this page layout and added some pixie dust for all the dreams that a girl holds.
The final product. Wonder. page 4.
