Layout for this week- Alternative Rock/ Grunge Layout for the Glee Club Challenge at Dixie Pieces.
Do you know how hard it was to get this layout done?! Believe it or not, I am usually a pretty strait forward scrapper. OCD Me takes credit for that. Alternative Rock? I immediately think of the naked baby underwater or the chubby kid in the bee costume… or Kurt Cobain, greasy, in flannel. However, from Pearl Jam to Blues Traveler, Alternative Rock Cover Art is an homage to the psychedelic 60s/70s. Something OCD Me (who was doing lots of Google research for this project) was not expecting after The Beatles week.
It is definitely not the slick cover art of the Big Hair Spandex bands of the 80s. It is a call back to all things that the back to school specials warned us about… sex, drugs,… and rock and roll. The base of my pages is pink- as was the cover of Train’s Drops of Jupiter (the moderator’s inspiration band for this week’s theme), and a surprising amount of other alternative cover art. Since Train’s latest cover art features a crow with a crown, I could not leave my “princess” out. So, back through my files, I found last year’s birthday –unscrapped, and away I went.
So, after a day with the label maker and purging this is my new after...Thank you Zen Master Wookiemouse for enlightening us to the ways of the labelmaker!
