This is my response to two Scrap Happenzz challenges – mars4554's challenge to have a cut photo, a layered embellie made from 4 pieces of scrap & reference a pre-1980 movie; as well as MaRLeNeF's challenge to create a card using a sketch (I did a LO instead).
LO is about part of a trip we did in '06 that included San Francisco &, obviously, an evening trip to Alcatraz. The date doesn't appear here because it will be on the LO before this one (re: earlier in the day). The bottom right pic on the right page flips up to reveal a couple of photos from later that evening that don't fit w/ the overall feel of the LO.
The mosaic is a pic of the Alcatraz cell block; I've been meaning to try this technique for a while but hadn't yet, it was challenging to do (at times a little frustrating), but overall I'm pleased. My layered-scrap-paper embellie is the mini-set of bars & skull! This references the 1979 movie “Escape From Alcatraz.” I was psyched that the card challenge provided a sketch that sparked my direction on this LO. The background is stamped. The “barbed wire” is made from black twine; there's more of a bottom margin than seen here. I clear embossed the title to give it more oomph. Journaling is stapled. The Rock Star Stack was a Secret Santa giftie from whenscraphappenzz – thanks Tiff!
It was soo fun trying to fulfill these 2 challenges here… I'm grateful that it had me trying new things. So THANKS, Marsha & Marlene!
