the unveiling

well, it's done. my first real foray into the world of collage. and i have to admit, i really like it! there's a lot more control needed than i ever expected. and it's not nearly as easy as it might look! phew! but it was so much fun, and i loved the colours i got to use for this layout. colours i don't often use, at least not without subduing them with kraft cardstock or something. there's a lot of new techniques for me, and some techniques i don't generally like. i like the look, but i hate doing them.

until now! i could really get addicted to this style. so i would have two completely opposite scrappin styles. go figure, me, with 2 opposite "ways of being."

anyway, enough of the preamble. you want to see the layout. well, here you go!

tada! (click to see larger)

lemme know what you think. like i said, so not my style, so i would appreciate some feedback. (but be nice, it's my b-day! lol)

btw, that pink-ish blob near the upper right corner, is a glamourous lady in a beautiful coat, stamped in black ink on pink paper and cut out.

also, the quote in the speech bubble:
"Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but she did it backwards and in high heels."
-Faith Whittlesey
so, there you go. the finished product. hope you like it! :)
