Inspired by music!!....(and mess!)

Wow, yesterday I spent hours working on one layout that took me way out of my comfort zone but I am excited by the way it turned out. This layout was for a challenge at Scrapbook Challenges that asked us to take inspiration from an album cover. It was an awesome idea!

This was the album cover:

This is the layout that I came up with:

First I chose the pink plaid paper and curled the edges, my first attempt at paper curling! Finding the designs for the middle I think is what I spent the most time on, tried so many different papers but couldnt decide what I wanted to use until I found one from Scrapworks named Love in Bloom: Striptease which had all these different strips. I didnt like how the strips were on the page so I cut each out individually and omitted a few strips that I felt didnt suit my page. For the picture I mounted it on a piece of scrap Bazzill (my favorite cardstock) and then took some Tie-Downs from Scotch and used them to add some sparkled fiber around the picture. For the lower half of the page I used Magic Mesh (another favorite of mine) and added a quote from the DCWV Vellum Quote Stacks. For the flowers I used hot pink handmade paper mums from Forever in Time and attached smaller flowers also from the same company. I spent quite a while deciding whether I wanted to stick anything up on the top half but decided it looked fine as it was and most things I tried made it look to busy. I had so much fun working on this layout!

I would love to hear your comments!
