When I saw the movie I got was The Money Pit, I thought about doing a layout about our house. We took out a built-in TV stand that was the wrong shape for modern TVs, and then discovered a few cracks that we are going to consult an engineer about. However that story isn’t finished and I don’t have an “after” picture.
I decided to do a page about the most unexpected thing that happened in the last few months: my co-star had a heart attack the day before opening night. He made it through fine but was unable to go on stage. We didn’t have understudies because we are a small community theatre group, so two of the other actors filled in using scripts.
I wasn’t sure what paper to use. I was looking to see what I had that was drama or food related (since the two settings were a restaurant and a dinner party.) In the end I went through my Life Isn’t Perfect collection from Wild Whisper Designs and found the perfect broken heart paper. This also fits the technique prompt because I own a lot of paper especially from Wild Whisper.
