Subway Word Art: Family

This is a layout I created for one of my design team challenges over at Memorable Seasons for their online crop from earlier in January.

"Falling For Word Art"

Subway art is all the rage right now so we are going to base our challenge on the theme of word art and the number 9.

My challenge for the number 9 is this:
* Use 9 words (or phrases) to create a background (think Subway sign art)--these words can be any topic you'd like.
* Add a 9 inch piece of paper to your layout (this can be cut into a shape or as wide as you want, but it has to be at least 9" long)
* Add these 9 elements to your layout-- 4 photos, 5 sets of embellishments. 4+5=9
* Since September (9th month) is the beginning of Fall, you need to use one fall color of your choice on your layout too.

Here's my layout for this challenge:

Here's some detail photos:
I created my background with a variety of stamps (alphabet stamps and word stamps). I stamped them with Versamark, then heat set them with clear embossing powder. You don't have to use stamps though...look through your supplies and see what stickers, rub-ons, die cuts, etc you have on hand.

 I added a 9 inch piece of music paper that I punched with a scallop edge. Again, this 9" piece can be as wide or as narrow as you'd like.
I did layer some of the flower embellishments, so I'm just going to count those as single stacks each. I added a brown/green flower, a pearl brad for the center, red flowers, pleated ribbon, and a kraft ticket to total 5.
