To Play The Game - SOUS Diecut Challenge *Word Art*

Hello there!

This week's Stuck On U Sketches challenge is to use "Word Art". I am loving the latest trend of using brush fonts for titles, so I was excited to try it out on a layout.

Papers: Fancy Pants Design; Font: Manus; Embellishments: Studio Calico, Fancy Pants,
American Crafts, SEI; Punches: EK Success, Unknown paperclip

I wanted an element to balance the large photo I had to scrap, so I used the font "Manus" to cut the long quote. I was surprised at how well it cut on my Cricut (with SCAL). Since it's cut from the thinner Fancy Pants paper, the machine had a better go of it. I'm not sure how well it would cut through thicker cardstock, though. :(

To give even more visual weight to the quote, I added lots of small bits and pieces and tried to keep a visual triangle on the page with some larger clusters at the top of the photo, bottom and middle of the quote.

So, let's see what kind of word art you can come up with! Be sure to share it on the SOUS blog and you will have a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to Creative Embellishments!
