A new year begins in February over at shimelle.com with the announcement of weekly challenges each Monday. The first one was to scrapbook a selfie, but I didn't quite do this, although I am in the photo I scrapped.
I'm a Luddite and don't have a smartphone, so selfies are few and far between. My husband took a few on the first formal night of our cruise last year, but they are truly terrible, so bad that we had a professional photo taken on the second formal night the following week, and it's that picture that I used here.
There isn't normally a story to this sort of posed photo which makes it difficult to think of an interesting page title. However this time Shimelle's challenge got me thinking about those failed selfies and lead directly to the title of my page.
My page design came from another challenge - this week's sketch from Let's Get Sketchy. I copied the main diagonal elements, but I added a journalling box on the left, and moved my title across above it.
I cut the word Selfie four times on my Silhouette Portrait and layered them up to give the word a little dimension, adding the rest of the title with letter stickers.
