My First Smashbook Page...

Last night, Michael and I had the pleasure of seeing the amazingly talented Jackson Browne do a solo acoustic performance at the State Theatre in Minneapolis. Oh. WOW. Words cannot describe the magic. The way this man uses words to create visual pictures just blows me away. It has for decades now. Incredible. And oh, so fun to create my first SmashBook entry about it! The timing of that just worked out fabulous!!! Here's how it turned out (click on the image to see the details better...)
That adorable owl was already on the page, but I colored him with my colored pencils, and gave him some headphones and music notes to fit in with the theme. The photo at the top right-hand corner of the page is a painting that is right over the stage. The State is a super-old theatre that went through a grand renovation awhile back, and the ornate decor is breathtaking! Anyhoo, The piece of text on the left was cut from an environmental flyer that we got at the show; and the cut out lines of text are lyrics from his encore song. It was so much fun to do old-school scrapping like this! It will make me smile every time I look at it and remember that nite!

Here's a video of Jackson doing the song that he played for his encore last night...



If you got a Smashbook, have you started it yet? I'd love to hear about it!

One of the reasons I turned from scrapbooking to mixed media ... 'old style' scrapbooking ... cramming everyday life in a journal's pages. I want one soooo bad!

I have one on order--they're a bit slow in getting to some of us on the East Coast. :)

I wish I'd been there.... the 'encore' (as you call it) ... oh wow!!! It brings back loads of memories - happy as well as sad but that's OK (more melancholic then sad I guess)
