I don’t have any tattoos because I don’t want people to judge me. If you are a man with a tattoo, people think you have criminal tendencies. If you are a woman with a tattoo, people think you have hookerish tendencies. I don’t make the rues, that’s just the way it is. But sometimes, I think about getting a tattoo. Not just any tattoo. I want a prison tattoo on my face. The teardrop kind. The kind of tattoo that tells people that I have killed someone. No, I haven’t killed anyone, but it would be nice for people to think that I have. Living in
is tough, and I bet people would stay away from me if they thought I was a cold-blooded killer. Philadelphia
Also, I was watching one of those shows about gangs on TV, and I learned that there is a gang called Sex, Money, Murda. I want to be in THAT gang. They showed some of the gang members’ tattoos, and I told my boyfriend that I wanted one. He went to art school, so he promised me that this summer, he would draw a REALLY big $.M.M. on my back with a sharpie to wear to the beach. No one would see my back tattoo in the winter months. I told him that that sounded fun, but I don’t want to start a gang war at
Cape May. But I am considering the teardrop tattoo.
So anyway, I did this layout, Maize Maze, for a challenge at Design Dollies (http://designdollies.blogspot.com/) to freehand something on a layout. I doodled lines, dots, and dotted lines all over this dude in brown ink, and I really think it adds a fun touch! I also used autumn-themed papers for the challenge to use themed products at Challenge Masters. Please enjoy the unncessary close-up photo!
For this layout, I was inspired by the cover of a Martha Stewart Living magazine as part of the advertisement challenge at Challenge Masters. I used the color scheme and the blocked design. I also included lyrics from the Playing for Change version of the song, “Stand by Me” for the challenge at Scrapping the Music (http://scrappingthemusic.blogspot.com/). When I saw the challenge a few days ago, I knew I HAD to do a layout about my bestie,
You can see the journaling for these layouts in my ACOT gallery. http://www.acherryontop.com/gallery_show/,12672873,cid,,,
