This is my latest layout. I was issued a challenge by a member of my critique group. We are doing some of our takes on Effer Dares. She issued Dare # 27 - Dare to be different.
As quoted from the Effer blog: I dare you to be different. I dare you to unleash the artistic possibilities within yourself and within the materials you are creating.I dare you to create a page from found objects(ie. everyday items that are considered junk or trash) and handmade materials (anything you created yourself or alter to make it your own).I dare you to have fun, experiment and try something new!!
I had so much FUN doing this layout! I tried to think about what "different" stuff I could use on a layout and then it just came to me, aluminum foil! The picture is mounted on foil and then painted around the pic overflowing onto the foil. The journaling reads: To - Amy From - Your Soul I've been listening to you lately and you are much too hard on yourself. Always doubting yourself and feeling inadequate. I called to tell you that you are so wrong. Feel the confidence on the inside that you show on the outside.
