Bucket List #56

Hey peeps, Happy Friday! I am so looking forward to staying at home this weekend!! Really needed to start organizing my life, so I will be doing a lot of thinking, with some crafty fun in between. Plus, it's another public holiday on the coming Tuesday, hooray! =)

Back to today's topic, another layout done! I really am quite productive these days, though only in scrapbooking, haha! 

This layout is about another item that I crossed off in my bucket list, get a self portrait by street artist. (AND I just realized I left out an 'R' in the word portrait in my layout, oh God.. *English failed*) That artist isn't really a 'street artist' because he and his partner weren't doing their business on the street, they have a proper shop, but I think even he isn't a street artist (by strict definition), I still consider this item on my list crossed off! 

I took three days to get this layout done, having a small case of creativity block (used up too much mojo juice during NSD?). First day was choosing the patterned papers and some main elements for the layout (gold mini doilies ♥), and the overall placement for it. Second day was putting down the title and choosing embellishments (supposedly, which I failed to do so). Then I decided to leave it for another day before placing everything permanently on the layout. I found a few patterned papers and laid eye on my (long forgotten) scallop border punch on the third day, and decided to use these for my second cluster of embellishments on the page. Added a few stickers here and there, and used some acetate letters to spell the word 'happy'. 

Bucket List #56 - Get a Self Portrait by Street Artist, Done 

3x4 PL Card is a nice spot for placing title

That about sums me up =p


The scallop borders are a nice touch to the layout, don't you think?
