9-11 – a layout for Stick It Down
|Start:||This month I am guest designer over at Stick It Down, by virtue of being chosen for my August entry, Here’s today’s sketch:|
|Style:||I decided to do a page I had been thinking about for many years. A long while back, I had downloaded this single stunning image from the Getty Commons of the Twin Towers burning on September 11, 2001 and printed it slightly larger than 4 x 6. I used the two circles of the sketch to ground my main elements, photo and journaling, and then I set about adding symbolism:|
|Stash:||My Mind’s Eye and Lily Bee patterned papers, Fancy Pants transparency, Ali Edwards journal card, Scraptastic die cut, Jenni Bowlin alphabet, Stampin Up small heart punch, Mr. Huey mists.|
|Story:||Here’s the journaling so you can read it easily:|
“I was too young to remember where I was the day Kennedy was shot, but I will always remember where I was on that fateful day September 11, 2001.
It was an early morning start at the Susan G. Komen foundation. We volunteers were busy processing Race for the Cure entry forms and deposits when the news came over the TV. Stunned with disbelief, and unable to concentrate, we hurriedly finished up, and with words of encouragement to one another, we headed our separate ways. We all wanted to just go home, call our family members, and maybe feel a little safer.”
