I made this LO for a DT call over at Song Bird Scraps (http://songbirdscraps.blogspot.com/) , and I got accepted!!! I'm excited but nervous!! I do hope some of my friends here at scrapbook.com will visit this new place and enter in one of the challenges ... it would be so nice to see a familiar face!!!
The lyrics are so true, and I so need to handle this fact better, I need to look at the glass as being half full. So I decided that would be the theme of my LO. I really wanted this LO to have somewhat of a funky look. I'm still experimenting with this style, and I would like it to be a bit more of a mess, even when trying to be funky I can't seem to get away from straight lines or some sort of balance and structure. I would love to be able to just shake that off, but I guess that will take some time and a little bit more self-confidence!
Now I have to admit this design isn't all mine ... I've seen this design of the sun coming up through the buildings done several times before by others, and I stuck in my head. It's also very similar to the banner of the challenge site "scrap the boys", where they had a challenge doing a LO inspired by this banner, so I guess that's how the idea got into my head in the first place.
I only use cardstock for this LO. I printed the text onto white cardstock, tore the paper and adhered it to the white background. I doodled the bubble-border and for the blue sky I used Ranger distress ink. I outlined the title with stickles.
