The suggestion for the new crusade at GPP Street Team is to cut words and phrases from magazines, newspapers, junk mail etc and to make backgrounds from them. Here are my first two pages. I haven't yet decided whether to leave them as they are or to apply some decoration to them. Time will tell...

I have to say.. that red, black and white thing works. And so does your orientation mix, and I like it. One thing you could do is to scan these and always have this great background to use for all sorts of ideas! Then you won't have to make that decision right away.

Thanks for sharing.

I really like the first one - the red letters dominating everything is so unexpected. I love red, white & black, but this really shook up my vision!

Your pages look really strong with just the red and black. Love them!

Love to see what you did with these phrases, a real strong spread.

Lizbethem said...

Backgrounds? Well, they look great just at they are to me!

Really interesting color study--the bold red with black, and the more mixed approach. Letters as graphic elements can be so intriguing--and your collage certainly proved it!

Kari said...

Wow! I love the red and black text. So striking together. Very cool text!

The colour scheme is very dramatic but it's the one number that caught my eye instantly. I found myself wondering if the number meant anything to you, or if it was random. It really drew me in.

I love that color comobo too but the red page is just a POP of color. I need to cut more text bits!!

Dawn said...

Lenna Young Andrews said...

Nice backgrounds ! Love the text colors, and can't wait to see what you add to the page (or maybe you just leave them like this ..)
