Let's see what's shakin' in the real world.

Or, if that is too cryptic for you...
Let's see what's happening at Aussie Scrap Music.

At last I can show you my first layout for ASM.

The challenge is to get a least three elements of inspiration from the filmclip, which is John Butler Trio Good Excuse.

After playing with paint (the hint of colour in the filmclip) for the background, I then masked a couple of cogs. The spider web was inspired from my trip to Gostwyck with Renae and fitted with the contrast between the natural world and the manmade world in the film clip.

Of course black and white was fairly obvious in the clip - hence the photo (almost black and white!). And the border, which is an absolute feature of the clip, I have just lightly stamped with my new swirly stamps.

Have I covered it?

Ahhh! The journalling!

One day in March, Renae and I decided we would get up early, drive out to Gostwyck, go for a walk, and then take photos of the sunrise. It was very foggy so Renae drove slowly so that we got there in one piece. We headed off for a walk waiting for the sun to come up. The fog banked up on the horizon and blocked any goodlooking opportunities. So instead of colourful sunrise photos we took photos of spider webs - the jewels of the morning - and each other. Then we drove home, being able to see clearly where we were going!!! It was worth the effort and a lot of fun - so we decided to do it again another day.

PS: There's quite a bit to be read between the lines that Renae and I will chuckle about for a while to come, eh Renae?!?! :)
