Hello friends!  I did this layout for More Than Words Challenge.  I love their challenges.  This one was grunge and you had to use the word Fearless.

This is my layout.

I love this photo of my Mom.  She passed away two years ago but I thought of this black and white photo would go perfect with grunge.  This paper I found and I thought it would work.

Here is the challenge.

September 2017 Main Challenge

It's September, and in the North, people are saying 'Where has the Summer gone?!' 
and in the South, people are happy that it is finally Spring!  
Wherever you are though, September is a great month to scrapbook,
 so hopefully you will join in on our new Main Challenge!

Along with a fabulous challenge, we have a surprise for you...
a new amazing manufacturer has joined our sponsor lineup
and thanks to them, we can offer not 2, but 3 random prizes this month,
along with our usual list of merit and mystery prizes...
So definitely extra incentive to play along!
Our Main Challenge is based on a word inspiration and a creative challenge.
The challenge is open to layouts, canvases and art journal pages only.
Make sure to carefully read our instructions below.
Word Inspiration - FEARLESS
Creative Challenge - GRUNGE
What does the word FEARLESS inspire you to create?
You can choose to use the actual word somewhere on your project 
or simply be inspired by it.  Since, as you are aware, words 
are an integral part of our challenges, we want to know 
how this month's word stimulated your creative process, 
so please do explain in your blog post how it inspired you!

GRUNGE is defined as a deliberately untidy and uncoordinated style. Whether it focuses on dark colours, a distressed or stained look, punk graffiti, messy designs, one thing's for certain... you have to not be scared of taking risks.  So be fearless and let's get grungy!

To be eligible to win, you have to incorporate both requirements of the challenge, 
the word inspiration and the creative challenge.
Just look at our designers' projects and descriptions as examples.

You must also include our board image as well as a link to our blog in your entry post.  AND you may combine our challenge with no more than 2 other challenges.


Please see the close-ups!


This was the first time I tried doing a layout in grunge and I rather like it!  Thank you for looking and have a great day!
