DH and I are not feeling well. I keep trying to work through whatever we have, but I'm not making much gain. I'm so hot all the time. I have a horrible chest cold as does DH. I feel sick to my stomach. We're both self medicating. DH will visit the doc tomorrow if he can get an appointment. I'll wait a little bit. I look as badly as I feel and it's not a pretty picture!
I have a couple of layouts to share. One was for a challenge. We needed to use Picasso's Three Musicians as our inspiration. Well, I had a blast with it. Here is the artist's masterpiece:
Isn't it amazing? There are so many details tucked inside that painting. Now, here is my inspiration. First and foremost was the randomness of the masterpiece. Therefore, I chose my LO to be SO NOT me! I made my very geometric shapes all kittywampus. I chose papers that had random designs and were from different lines. I used the colors that Picasso used - russet, black, blue, brown, cream. I matted the LO in black and then, behind the black mat is an electric blue mat. Picasso had three pairs of eyes clearly defined in his painting. I placed three pairs of eyes randomly on the LO. Because Picasso's work was disjointed, I made my large flower disjointed by cutting the stem halfway and then NOT lining it up. I also tipped the rectangles. Picasso has a slip of notepaper as do I. The hands and arrow are just there - for no significant reason, just random as Picasso often employs. Then, I used a photo of DDIL that also has no significance! LOL It is just a photo that most of us wouldn't scrap because her beautiful face was covered. Hence, I entitled my LO, "Unfinished."
The next layout was just a happy one! When I went up for this ride, I had no idea I was expecting DS! Had I known, I don't think I would have taken that ride! The most amazing thing is that it is so quiet up above the trees. All you can hear are the faint barks of dogs. I loved this experience. Here is my design:
The last LO is of DH and myself so many years ago! I think DH was pretty happy! I just wanted to have fun and loved the paper with all the tickets, so I cut them out, LOL.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you are feeling well.
