Week 27: Use a crossword puzzle, soduku, or word game
Guilty. I admit it. I am a “Words with Friends” addict. And I’m competitive too. Just ask my family – I’m ruthless at word games – I’m not proud of it! For this week’s challenge I decided to make myself a teeny tiny little ‘Words with Friends’ game board and letters. Too, too cute!
I gridded out my game board and drew the lines with a Tombow marker and then ran a waterbrush down the lines to blur them a bit. I made lots of “Triple and Double” letter and word spaces. Then I stamped some tiny alpha stamps onto watercolor paper that I painted a golden yellow. Each letter block is only 2/8″ square! I cut them out and inked the edges with black ink.
I attached a little glassine envelope to the bottom of the page to hold all of my game pieces. Aren’t they adorable?
Now I have a sweet little game in my planner. Originally, I thought I might make it functional, but in the end I decided to go more artistic so I glued down “Life” and “Document.” I love the way it turned out!
I’m super excited to see how you use a puzzle or word game in your planner this week.
