Using April's challenge #1, we're all showing projects inspired by this picture:
And here's my project:
So, I knew there was nothing in my kit to use as a direct interpretation of the picture, so I started looking for other angles. I sort of saw the picture in quadrants and that made me think to use four 6x6s as my background 12x12. And if you flip the tree to the other side, that's sort of how I arranged my page, with one side filled and the other side partially open.
I'm enjoying these unlayered looks and have a Pinterest board with some collected inspiration pages. I didn't directly scraplift a single page, but I definitely took pieces of several recently added pages on my pin board, including pages from Debbie Hodge, Jen Jockisch and others. It's a fun look, and I'm having fun playing with the unlayered arrangement.
To understand the title, you have to know The Blogess and her Beyonce the Giant Metal Chicken story. When we took a trip to Amish Country last fall and saw this metal chicken in a garden at one of our stops, we had to get a picture - It's Beyonce in simpler times, and she won't ever need electricity or a telephone. And I've left room for the full title, which I will add later now that I've taken the pictures :), because it's an oft used phrase around here.
I added a few little things that weren't in my original kit. I was just having fun adding random shiny bits!
I knew I wanted to get away from my little Project Life pages and back into some regular pages, so I'm glad I could start on these pictures. I'll have several more pages to do for this trip, and maybe that will keep me busy in the near future.
Alright, next stop is Lisa at http://lisae-design.blogspot.com - don't miss her project and the rest of the group on the second half of the hop. Here's the full hop order, in case you hit a bump along the way. Be sure to visit all the stops!
