May I now present…my new Name page!!
I have already written about my uninspiring Name page. I’d followed the instructions but used no creativity whatsoever, and to say it was uninspiring would be an understatement!
I had been considering jazzing it up in some way, but I couldn’t think how. Then, while exchanging wrecking ideas with one of my friends, I had an idea.
It involved splitting the page into sections and writing the letters of my name in them. I remember doing this when I was younger and I just loved to doodle – on school books, usually, or any scrap of paper. I’d draw out squares and write my name or the names of whichever celeb I was crushing on at the time – come on, you know you did it too!!
For this page, I decided to draw the lines at an angle…I used a ruler and measured the sections exactly, in case anyone’s interested!! Being Wreckless still doesn’t come easy to me!!
I wanted the design to be a background to the content of the page, rather than covering it up completely, so I wanted to keep the colouring. On my laptop screen, I can hardly see the colours at all, so I hope you can. the colours are hardly visible, so I hope you can see them.
I’m really happy with how it turned out 🙂
The page next to it is another story! The first plan was to stick a pretty carrier bag over it. I did this, and it didn’t quite look as good as it did in my mind! If you really want to see, then there’s a picture here. It was a terrible idea, it looked tacky and horrible, had no relation to the page beside it and I just wasn’t happy with it at all.
So, I peeled that right off and started again!
I covered the page in rainbow paper and then glued on a cat picture from an old birthday card that I just thought was fun. It’s a hologram on thick plastic, so as well as being incredibly difficult to cut to size, it is also very difficult to take a picture of! But I have done my best to show the hologram and here it is:
I’m happy with this page now anyway, and I think it makes a nice welcome page 🙂
