My More Than Words August Design Team Reveal

Hello Everyone!

August has arrived with all the happy days that it has to offer, 

including some brand new creative inspiration and challenge

from us to you on the More Than Words blog!

We hope that you will play again this month with this brand new challenge:

Our Main Challenge is based on a word inspiration and a creative challenge.

This is the August challenge

We don't get old. We get vintage!
Here is my Design Team Reveal

{These Hands}

My inspiration for this month's challenge came from this photo of my Mum's hands. I have journaled about what these hands have done on many a YESTERDAY and still do today. She is my inspiration. For the creative challenge I have added a filter to the photo to match it to the VINTAGE brown and beige colour palette and added a clock and a doily to my cluster.

Word Inspiration - YESTERDAY
Creative Challenge - VINTAGE

What does the word YESTERDAY inspire you to create?
You can choose to use the actual word somewhere on your project 
or simply be inspired by it.  Since words are an integral part of our challenges, we want to know how this month's word stimulated your creative process, so please do explain in your blog post how 
it inspired you if it isn't obvious in your work.

We're heading back in time this month with a VINTAGE creative challenge. Think sepia or black and white photos, subdued colours and gorgeous textures. The vintage style evokes a sense of history with images and elements associated with a forgotten (or unforgotten thanks to the wonderful hobby of scrapbooking) past. You might like to use an old photograph, a patterned paper with an antique look or an old-fashioned embellishment on your project. Look back to the past for your inspiration!

I loved this challenge and was really happy with my final creation.
Lots of layers, 2Crafty Chipboard pieces, sewing threads, Kaisercraft  papers, blooms and alphas.
These hands have certainly done hours and hours of work and they still work just as hard today.
 She is my inspiration in so many ways.

Will you now take on this challenge?

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Janice xoxo
