Quotable Quotes

Collecting quotes has always been one of my things. Usually they get jotted down on a scrap of paper and left here and there. Not very organized of me I know. However, I endeavor to get more organized with my favorite quotes.
Posting them as status on facebook has been a helpful way to keep track of them.
Adding them to a file document helps to keep them in order.
But it's always more fun to get a bit creative with them.
One way I have done that is by adding them to wall art...like I have here...


Another way is a mini book project that makes a great place to collect alot of my favorites, and a way to keep them out in the open for many to look at.



Here is one of my favorite movie quotes created as a layout. You might recognize it from the September gallery. I used different letter stickers as well as cut out letters to add some interest to this humerous tidbit.




Using a word art piece from Rhonna Farrer I printed this quote for my daughter right on the cardstock. Added the photo and a few colorful papers. This quote speaks to where she is right now in her life.


On my list of using quotable material I would love to:
create a digital calendar with all quotes
construct mini albums for each of my kids highlighting important quotes for life
art journal with quotes as the main theme
utilize quotes more often inside handmade cards

Do you use quotes very often on your art work?
Would love to see your creations...
So...link us up!





Have a great day!

Had to let you know - Tonight is the beginning of Rosh Hashana and i was needing a honey-cake recipe. I happened on your blog and saw the apple cake recipe and had to give it a try. You're right - it's fabulous! Thanks and have a sweet New Year!
