So I finally got some inspiration and motivation after being in the lazy state that my vacation brought on. I even cleaned my house today! I know I am shocked as well ;) ... ok I didn't clean my bedroom or the scraproom so maybe I didn't clean the WHOLE house but no one needs to know that. The parts that people will see are clean and I think that's all that matters =D Plus I think my BF should clean those two rooms because ... just because.
Anyways on to the first LO I have to share with you. The title is 'Always Be Happy' and it is the first page that I have created with Scraps of Darkness May's Kit. The photo is my BF and I at the Magic Kingdom.
The next LO is my entry to the bi-monthly Skeletons in the Closet challenge over at Scraps of Darkness. Anyone can play as you do not have to use a SOD kit. The challenge is to be inspired by the song 'Iris' by the Goo Goo Dolls. You are also not allowed to use any pictures, just clip art or illustrations. That was a huge challenge for me. I decided to make it even more difficult by insisting that I draw everything myself instead of finding clip art that would fit. Mind you I am not the greatest artist ... not even a good one, but I do have fun trying to draw, and I thought it would make the page more personal if I drew everything.
Cuz I don't think that they'd understand"
Basically what this page means is that I frequently hide from reality by focusing on fantasy whenever real life can get to be too much for me. I will get way too involved in a tv show, movie, book, scrapbooking, etc. Honestly I think my BF is the only who can get me to face reality, though he does allow me to hide a little bit. He really is my perfect partner <3
Here are close ups of the drawings
Thanks for looking!
