One Little Word: PURE

I haven't done anything papercrafty for what feels like forever! Yesterday I stumbled across the One Little Word blog again, which has been lying forgotten in my favourites folder for ages, filed under the "baking" folder in some bizarre slip-of-the-mouse accident. It's now restored to it's rightful place in the "scrapbooking" favourites folder.

The latest word prompt on there (they're up to #9 already!) is PURE. As soon as I saw the word I knew what I wanted to do with it. This:


I've had a song from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory in my head for ages (since Gracie discovered the copy on video at Nanny's) so "Pure Imagination" was my first thought. The layout includes some of the lyrics, which go perfectly with the theme:

If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it
Anything you want to, do it
Want to change the world?
There's nothing
To it

There is no
Life I know
To compare with
Pure imagination
Living there
You'll be free
If you truly wish to be

The photos are of Gracie doing various creative/let's pretend/dressing up type things and I've altered the colour settings (namely the Hue) to give that purpley/green look to them. There's hidden journaling under the three squares with the dome stickers on about how amazing Gracie's imagination is, even at just 3 years old.

The design for the LO actually came from a sketch I'd done with the intention of doing a page for Ewan's album. This is the sketch:


Obviously I've adapted it to suit the DLO, but hey, it's my sketch, I'll do what I want with it ;) I'm still going to use it as is for Ewan's LO, hopefully tonight, I want to see if I can keep this scrapping ball rolling!

For the "Pure" layout, I've used:

Bazzill cardstock (white and 4 colours)
Patterned paper from the DCWV "Pocketful of Posies" stack
BG Chipboard Monograms (as a template for the "pure" title)
Creative Imaginations "sonnets" poem stones
Sen Plus ribbon
Dovecraft brads
Just Pots "Funky Flowers"

Right, I'm off to make lunch for a hungry preschooler... and a hungry Mummy :)
