LOAD #12-Let the Music Play

Sunday, February 12, 2012

Oh, I'm out of order now.  I still haven't had a chance to do LOAD #11.  I know what I want to do, it's all laid out, I just need the time to do it.  I just don't get as much scrappy time on the weekends.  Anyway, on to LOAD #12 and today's prompt is: History repeats itself.

Again, there are any number of things I could have done, but I knew 3 things already...I wanted to use these photos of my son's band concert for the Club CK ThanksLiving Challenge #2, and also the Club CK CHA trend Challenge,  I was tremendously inspired by the Frosted Designs 2/7 Sketch.  So I decided that history has repeated itself by my son being in the school band, just like I was, but also, that I am just thankful we still have music in our schools.

So, for this LO, I used the Frosted Designs sketch, but I flipped it so the photos go left to right instead of right to left.  This was a great sketch for these photos for a lot of reasons. I had one central photo and 2 small ones to focus on. It allowed me to use some embellishments to highlight not only the photos, but the theme of the LO as well.  I just knew right away, this was going to work for these photos!

Orange is a hard color to use. Really? NEON orange band shirts that had to be photographed indoors in bad florescent lighting.  Yeesh.  So, I chose to use more orange PP to complement the photos rather than try to contrast them and just set it on black CS.  I was concerned it might look like Halloween, but I don't think it does at all.  I took a close up photo of the medal my son received, and printed multiples, cut them out and make them the banner to reinforce the music theme.  I added metal brads and the metal round clips to play off the brass trumpet.  I also had this chipboard piece with the word music on it that I wanted to stand out, so I used smaller letter stickers.  I am really happy with how this turned out.

Lots of supplies for this one.  CS-Bazzill, PP-SEI, Scenic Route, Echo Park, DCWV, Basic Grey, Journal tag, letter stickers and date sticker-Echo Park, 'Music' Chipboard-DCWV, Ink-ColorBox, brads-Making Memories, metal clips-unknown, bakers twine

Now all I need to do is find time to play catch up.  Maybe tomorrow....
