Why I love words, another layout and

Well I have been inspired this week to do a layout about why I love words. I write the odd poem and read loads and loads. I am dyslexic and was unfortunate to change areas at a key stage in a childs reading ability. I could read fairly well early, however I went from one area to another and they used phonics and made me start again. I didn;t really manage to read fluently again till I was 11 . I went to secondry school and we did the 1st world war in history and I read some of the war poets poems and that was it . I was moved and inspired by the sheer depth of feeling they could inspire with so few words. If you haven't come across their poetry you should take a look. Rupert Brooke and Wilfred Owen both died in the war and I have represented this by changing the center of their poppys to the watch face to represent their running out of time.

So here is my layout



I also fell in love with Vanessa Fentons Two new kits Moody Blues stunning arty papers Ill be using all of them they are moody and magnificent  and Haven a fantastic gothic alpha. They are so up my street. So here is my layout featuring them. It also feature one of Vanessa;s fantastic floral brushes.

Love the site! In the picture section, who is the girl in the 7th one? Isn't she a Versace? I can't remember her name but I know she had an eating disorder. I'd love to look up more pics for her. Thanks!
