Just thought I'd try and squeeze one more post in before I head to bed. Don't hate me because I love this page! (Remember those commercials? I don't know if they were for Cover Girl or a hair product or what, I just remember the model throwing her hair back and saying, "Don't hate me 'cause I'm beautiful!") Nolan took this pic of me a couple of weeks ago, and I thought it was pretty cute, plus I've wanted to do a "Mamarazzi" page for a while now, so it was the perfect shot. I looooooved this sketch from Sketches in Thyme:
so I followed it pretty closely and incorporated this month's ARTastic challenge: a picture of yourself, use shade of red/maroon, and include a hat. Well, a crown is worn on the head, so it is technically a hat, right? I used many crowns on this layout, even misted crowns that you can't really see that well, and a crown button. Those red buttons are truly vintage. Yep, I remember the jumpsuit my mom wore that came with those buttons. (You heard me, jumpsuit! Form your own opinion on that one!) I also used my new fave technique (see previous post) to blingify the edges of my cardstock. Anyway, I won't go into all the details of what I've done on this page (snore!) because there's a lot going on, but I think the monochromatic thing keeps it from being too far out there. (Am I even making any sense? My contacts are sticking to my eyeballs, must be time for bed.) Hope you like it!
