Let's get inspired again ...

Welcome to our mid month reveal. We are working with this amazing artwork by Josh Miels called We will remember them.

CRITERIA -  The use of Typography on your page - let those letters shine!

 I found this photo amongst my Mums photos . On investigation , with help from a cousin & Aunt I found out who he was . His father & my Dads Grandmother were Brother & Sister . So I thought I would like to Document it & honour him , so My children & their children are not left wondering who this man is.

I was inspired by all the letters ...

My inspiration are the colours and Anzac Day. I used a stencil for my background and patterned paper. I am using a very old postcard which I stumbled across in my photos of my grandparents.

 I was inspired of the BIG letters but I made them white. It also inspired me to go for a b/w photo of my father as a young boy with is mates at work. This page is a tribute to him and a great memory after him for me. (He passed away more than four years ago♡) I also have those pops of blue and orange-red. 

For this challenge I was inspired by the portrait of a man and the Anzac theme to create a layout about my Grandad, whose birthday was on Anzac Day and who served in the Army Reserves for many years. I used a photo and papers that matched the colours in the artwork and added typography using text paper, an alphabet stencil and texture paste and some letter tile stickers for the title.

I was inspired by the horizontal lines of text and I brought grey elements into my embellishments.

I used the military theme, the colours and a slightly different way of using words (typography) on my page.

Now it is your turn, we'd love to see your own interpretation ...
