Today's challenge over at Use Your Stuff, comes to us from Stephanie, and she is challenging us to use feathers on our project.
Scrap Happy's today's prompt for LOAD517 Day 8:
Citizen Kane – 1941
Today, in the style of yellow journalism, you will SENSATIONALIZE your story and create an eye-catching headline for your layout. It should be dramatic and draw you in to “read more”. Feel free to use a sketch for your layout today too, as Citizen Kane sketches a portrait of one man’s life.
Now this was interesting prompt. I was surprised how fast I got this prompt put together. After having a google search on some of the phrases used in the prompt description especially yellow journalism (interesting to find out that is what caused the Spanish-American War, will have to include that with one of my Great Grandpa's scrapbook layouts.) I hit the images and all the pictures that came up had all these headlines from the tabloids so I went a little bit that way. Going through my bird photos I found this one and knew it was perfect for this layout. Had fun cutting a few words from this paper I thought I'm never gonna be able to use. Thanks you all for always thinking outside the box when it comes to prompts.
I used the sketch over at the Memory Nest from last month for my layout seemed the prefect sketch for the story I wanted to create for the layout.
Perhaps you have a cute bird embellishment or an adorable sheet of paper with feathers. Maybe you have a cute digital stamp of a feathery friend you have been dying to use. Let your creativity "fly!" We can't wait to see what you create!
