Hello Scrappy Friends!! I hope you’re having a great weekend so far! I have another fun layout for you in this new series I’m doing with some friends. For this month we were challenged by Sara Scraps to be inspired by art. I immediately thought of the painting ‘The Scream’ by Edvard Munch. I honestly don’t know why that was the first painting I thought of, but I took it as a sign that was the one I should pick.
When I first thought about being inspired by this layout I was thinking I would do a bunch of mixed media on the background and do waves, kind of like at the top of the painting. The day I sat down to scrapbook, though, I was not in a mixed media mood. I don’t know why because I love it!
Anyway, I decided to take inspiration from other parts of the painting. First off, I wanted a screaming photo of one of my kids. I couldn’t find one, so I settled on a photo of Jonas with a mad face. It’s adorable, even though you can tell he’s NOT happy in the photo. I also decide to place the photo and clusters in the bottom right hand side, kind of where the screaming guy in the photo is. I mimicked the lines from the railing by making the layout an “L” shaped layout.
Here is my layout. I know, it’s really simple compared to the painting, but I am really happy with how it turned out!
I didn’t remember why Jonas was upset so I decided on this title and thought it was fitting. Haha!
Since Jonas was sad/mad in this photo I decided to have cork clouds, from SpiegelMom Scraps, as my main embellishment. They’re my favorite cork piece and so it was only fitting. I also used ‘Gone with the Wind’ sequins from her shop as well.
Just LOOK at that photo!!! Isn’t it just perfectly adorable?!! I totally miss him at this age! He was such a sweetheart, and he still is, but there’s just something about your little kids being young, isn’t there?
I love the texture you get from the cork and the sequins! They’re 2 of my favorite embellishments!
