Follow If Its Groovy

Message On My Hand: Darlene

This months If It’s Groovy challenge is to make a layout featuring a photo of your hands with a message on it. I figured this would be a good a time as ever to write a bit about my hands and how they have always been one of the things I am self conscious about—they’re so wrinkly and “old” looking, and they have been for as long as I can remember. So here I wrote a bit about my feelings in regards to my too lined hands, and figured if my children inherit this wrinkly hand gene, its totally OK, because my grandmother has always had her hands this way too, and I think of the unlikely way we are very alike. :)

I took some pictures of the front and back of my hands, made the images black and white, and used random fonts that I have downloaded to write onto my photo before I printed it off the computer. I think I liked this photo-title idea. I should do this more often. :)

I used a bunch of mixed Basic Grey collection pack paper and embellishments throughout, as well as, some scraps of a We R Memory Keepers embossible designs (Vintage Blue), and some DCWV Hippie Chic epoxy stickers for the flowers.

Won’t you give this “On the Hand” challenge a go? We would love to see what you come up with.
