Sharing another page made with the fabulous October "Belonging" kit from SFTIO… my "here & now" page. I thought a good aspect of the theme of belonging would be to scrapbook how I feel right now.
BELONGING- Right now, I feel a bit lost in life. Since I have now graduated high school, I am not sure what to do with my life. I decided that college wasn't right for me (still happy with that decision), but then the dilemma came of finding a job. I've applied at different places that I thought I would enjoy, and I haven't heard anything back from ANY of them. So right now I'm kind of a bum staying at home and scrapping my life away. This is NOT what I want to do with my life. And so I was explaining in this layout how I don't know where I belong in LIFE right now. I hate the feeling. Makes me grumpy. Just ask my family. I just want to do something worthwhile with my life! I know there is somewhere that I fit, I just don't know where that is right now.
SYMBOLISM- Since this is a selfie photo (from back in April when I was in San Francisco… I took it in the hotel mirror), I used little camera accents on this page. And that arrow background? Yeah, that's how I feel. Going in all different directions. I used a little wood heart from Maya Road as a symbol of scrapping my "heart." This is how I feel right now and this page is all heart.
Design… ahh, yes. The layered cluster that I love to do every now and then. There's just so many pretty patterns in this kit that I had to showcase a lot of them! Patterned paper makes me happy! The "Right now" tab is actually part of one of the 4x6 cards that come in the kit. I cut part of the banner so I could slide my photo under it. But not all of it is cut. Just enough for my photo to go underneath.
To separate the busy arrow background from the other patterns, I painted a mint blue circle to base my cluster on. I added some stitching to the painted "blob"… after the paint dried, that is. Then of course I layered, layered, layered!
This was the last page I made with the kit. I finally got to use that awesome ampersand sticker from the MME "Cut & Paste" sticker sheet that came in the kit. I painted it black so it would stand out on my page. I have thoroughly enjoyed designing with this kit. I'm glad I have leftovers so I can make more projects! :)
