And... here is my layout.
I opted for a CAS layout this week... man this is what I am most comfortable with :)
Here is how I solved the case.
Scheme - The colour are all there.
Evidence - Music elements, monogram, metal, use electricity to create your page (lights, computer and slice machine), circles (brads).
Testimony - Inspo words - think, process, idea.
The quote on the front of the layout says:
The journey awakens the soul.
My journalling on the back of the layout says:
I don't think I will ever forget the first time I ever heard Amy Winehouse sing. I was getting dressed one morning and the TV was on a music channel and there was a documentary on this new star that had come out of the UK. The minute I heard her sing I stopped dead in my tracks and sat on the end of the bed and sat glued to the telly until the end of the show. I was hooked. Every song she sang I felt like another little piece of me was being ripped out and shredded, laid bare for the world to see. Every single one of her songs is filled with a desperate sadness that only comes from experience and yet is accompanied by the sweetest music - a complete contradiction like two sides of the same coin. She had so much going for her and yet she gave in to her addictions and because of that the world lost an amazing artist. I was absolutely gutted when I heard she had died, I felt like a part of me had gone with her. It was on my bucket list to see her live and I never got to do that, and it still makes me sad.
I watched another documentary on her the year before last and the documentary was actually on a priest at a tiny little white church in Dingle in Ireland called St James's. This little church holds around 80 people, and had been used for "Other Voices" concerts, since about 2002 and has included the likes of Snow Patrol, Ryan Adams and Sinead O'Connor and many more, those who can't fit into the church can watch these concerts on big screens in the pubs throughout Dingle, and had been going. She performed her best ever there in 2006 so on my last trip to Ireland I made a point of going to Dingle so that I could see where she had performed. I reckon that is a close as I am ever going to get to this wonderfully, talented but very tragic musician.
I really wish things could have turned out different for her and I really wish I could have seen her perform but I am so grateful that I got to hear her at all and I truly hope that she has found peace at last.
RIP Amy Winehouse.
( I think I could have been an Amy Winehouse groupie :D)
Here are some close ups.
I used papers from My Minds Eye - So Sophie Collection (which looks a little lighter in the photo than it does IRL) - I used the monogram for her name, and the brads for the circles. I flicked some black ink onto the layout too.
I stamped the quote onto the layout and used some washi tape and rub-ons just because I could.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look and thank you for all the comments and love that you leave. I really appreciate it <3
