So I am still having my 'oh my god I'm bored' weekend so I decided to get a little experimental last night and created a layout for a challenge, Crazy Monday. I don't often show my 'experimentals' on my blog and I am not sure if I like it or not, but at least it is interesting. I would rather create an interesting mess than a boring pretty any day! So design wise inspiration came from a photo I found on flickr a while back of a graphic style abstract painting. I forgot to pin it but it was a pie element with measurements around the outside like a protractor. Theme wise, it is about master's 15's journey to find 'his thing'.
Yet to find his passion and what he wants to do with his future, I try and drum home to him that we aren't what we do. It is funny though, if someone asks you about yourself, often the first thing we say is what we do for a living. But in reality this is only very a small part of who we are. This week I actually got asked what 'I do' and I had so much trouble trying to put into words the half a dozen things I do to try and contribute to our house financially in one sentence. That wouldn't make me sound like a nutter anyway. Even when asked what scrapbooking was, I made it sound like I sit around all day with a bottle of clag glue and some old New Idea magazines! 'Professional Crafter' sounds a bit wanky and calling yourself an 'Artist' is a bit of a long stretch, any ideas girls? When hubbie & I used to have to attend formal events (prior to scrapbooking and the company he worked for being sold) and sit at tables with CEO's and the like, I used to be an 'Executive Officer of Domestic Operations'. It would take a few minutes before that one sunk in lol.
I have scraped this photo more times than I care to count ( sorry peeps!), but if you are the owner of a teenage boy you would know that it would probably be easier to extract a kidney from them than to get a photo!
Hope you are all having a weekend that is more exciting than mine!!
