I used the current challenge at 123 for this layout. The colour this month is hot pink, the word is "LOL" and the technique is to use a grid. Whilst not your standard grid, I think my triangles are certainly, at minimum LOL, grid-like wouldn't you say?
Ordinarily I'd struggle at least a bit (usually a lot LOL) with the words in the 123 challenges, only because it doesn't feel natural to me (most likely just me, and at least a few others, LOL!) to 'force' journaling or titles. Knowing I had this photo of my niece taken in the middle of the summer just gone, yes, I said summer, and that her friend was wearing hot pink, everything just, well, clicked! LOL!
Do you feel like playing with grids in hot pink? Do you have a photo just perfect for the word "LOL"? Then get your butt over to the 123 challenge blog and give this month's challenge a go! You can find all the details HERE.
Oh, and on a side note, I think I've been abducted by aliens. I guess my next layout will be the final confirmation. Where is my mixed media and what have you done with it?
