QWERTY by Sandy Ang

Sandy with my QWERTY layout. It's a dark and moody one to match the photo of this 1970s german typewriter. Shot indoors under tungsten it's a grainy, slightly out-of-focus picture.

The background of grey/black is broken up with the buttercup yellow of a Lily Bee grid paper. It is repeated in the baker's twine and the lacy backing of my QWERTY title alphas. I've also used spots of teal as accents. They appear in the 'spine' of my yellow book and also on the wings of a parakeet brad.

This side of the layout looked a little uninspired until I hit upon the idea of propping up the photo with an oval wood frame. It also served as my third circular item, to round out the bird brad and alpha Q, per the rule of threes.

The only thing that wasn't from this month's kit was the Marcy Penner badge (placed under the bird brad) from the February Stepping Stone add-on.

Oh wow! I love this. The letters look great used like that. I like the way you used the frame as well! Looks fab!
