The Huntress - she's got her own style. It's quirky, it is definitely anime-inspired, (these days it is often a little pouty-faced), and it's all her own. Some days she is a rock star, and other days she is the ultimate teenage drama queen. There may be a lot she still has to figure out in life, but she knows who she is, and that is a huuuggge start!
I took her out to do a fun little photo shoot recently, and I got a memory card full of photos that capture her in all her pouty rocker/anime glory perfectly. I knew I needed papers that captured the love, optimism, and hope I have for her - so I went digging through my stash for my HEIDI SWAPP stuff, which turned out to fit the bill perfectly. I primarily used the Mixed Company line, which had the clean, simple graphics I wanted.
To help me get my mojo kick-started, I also used the SKETCHABILITIES SKETCH #115. I know a lot of ladies on the Sketchablities design team take a more vintage, mixed media approach to the sketches. However, I think they work well for any style!
I love the way my layout turned out! I was a little worried, since I haven't scrapbooked in so long, that I had forgotten how to glue together two pieces of paper, much less create a complete layout. But, I guess it is just like that old saying about riding a bicycle...(thank goodness).
Here are a couple of close-ups:
A lot of layering and some symbolism, too...
My girl is a superstar to me, so of course I had to include a star and then, for good measure, layer it with another star. I guess that makes her a super superstar...
