Just scraping this one in with 2 hours to go. The challenge this week at Scrap Your Story was to scrap favourites. I've been mulling it over all week and finally decided to give it a go this morning and scrap about my favourite TV shows on at the moment. I had the idea for the collage of photos and that worked out fine.
When I sat down to do the layout, the finished layout ended up completely different from how I'd imagined it. I remembered I had some Jillibean Soup pp with TV's on so that was my starting point. I thought of concentrating on the blues and reds of the photo with some grey. However, I couldn't find a grey I liked and the other colours were going to make it too dark. So I decided on the base aqua paper which is from the Jillibean Soup Blossom Soup Collection. As it happens I got a collection pack of Teresa Collins Memories this week and it was sitting on the floor next to my desk. I decided to have a look at it and saw the film strip paper and thought that would go well. Then I noticed the grey spotted paper and thought that too was perfect. Then I noticed the Schedule journalling card and was going to pop that behind my photo and had started cutting it out when I thought I could write what nights the shows were on. So quickly it came together completely different from how I'd set off. I did end up cutting a TV out of the original Jillibean Soup paper I had intended using.
Anyway I like how it ended up.
