Soulology Week 1

This is my layout for Soulology Week 1. Soulology is an online scrapbooking course which helps you to scrapbook about yourself. Every Monday a new task is released. Last Monday we were asked to write a list of 100 things - 50 we liked, 50 we disliked - and then to make a layout with those lists. It was very difficult! I got to about 34 in the list of things I like quite easily and hard a very difficult time coming up with the last 16. Don't ask about the list of things I dislike. It actually took me 8 days to complete the lists and then another 2 to do the layout. I decided on a double page because it just seemed to fit better than incorporating both lists into one page.

Here is a closer look at each page.

The background colour is the first item on list of 50 things I like - Teal (Taken with Teal). I used the Its Beautiful wheel in Whisper White on both sides of the Like page and Night of Navy for the Dislike page. The flowers are from Bodacious Bouquet. I printed my 2 lists on vellum and then tore the edges. The titles are chipboard letters covered with Whisper White and Night of Navy textured cardstock. I attached the letters with mini glue dots and the vellum with brads (Tempting Turquoise and Brilliant Blue).
Quite simple layouts really but they work for me. Do they work for you?
