Holiday Word Salad

This week's challenge at Just Us Girls is what I call "word salad", some others call it subway art. It involves using sayings as the central design of the card. It is a great way to use many sayings all in one card.

Check out Jennifer Maguire's blog posting on this technique.

I didn't add anything extra to my card, because I found the diversity of fonts, sayings and colors fun in  and of themselves. The technique isn't hard but I did have to plan a bit at first.

I laid out all the sayings I wanted to use on a block and stamped it off to test the design.

As you can see I did change it up a bit because some of the proportions just didn't work for me. I used a plethora of companies for this card. I am not going to tell you unless you specifically ask. I want to you to use what you have. i know all of you will have more then enough to make a great card!

Here it is done in shades of blues, works just as well huh?

I really can not wait to see what all of you come up with for this awesome and challenging challenge at JUGS this week.
