Scrapshots - Scrapping up a song

Scrapping up a song

It is one of my favourite things to scrap - song lyrics. Sometimes the lyrics to a particular song just go so well with a layout or photo. Sometimes a song just pops into my head while I'm creating a layout and I just know I have to use it. An example is “From this moment on” that I posted here a few weeks ago.
Last week a friend (Bennie De Klerk) posted some beautiful photos of their December holiday on facebook and I asked him to send them to me. They were just so gorgeous and I knew I had to create something with them. As much joy as scrapping Karla's photos gives me I have realised that I need to break away from the norm every now and again or I will fall into a rut. This proved a huge challenge to me and creating a layout that wasn't chock and block full of “candy” and at least one spot of pink, purple or baby blue was not easy.
While creating the layout the words to “Lighthouse” by Elvis Blue (winner of SA Idols 2010 and one of my favourite SA artists) popped into my head and I decided to use the second half of the chorus as my journaling and title. “Lost at sea, I see you shine for me, you are my lighthouse.”
For inspiration I used this week's sketch from Sketchy Thursdays.
I still have a few photos to work with and am hoping that it gets better as I go along. Thanks for looking!

I didn't realise scrapbooking (that verb again!) is such an expression of creativity where you can combine graphics, lyrics, words, design concepts to bring across a thought, idea or expression.

And so I learned something new today!
