When Country Wasn't Cool
Barbara Mandrell sang it in the '80's and I was it in the 70's.
I was country when country wasn't cool.
One of our LOAD prompts this week encouraged us to scrap about our favorite music growing up. For me it was country music. I didn't even know most of the popular songs my friends were fans of. I do remember liking Shawn Cassidy but that was more because he was cute than the actual music.
I grew up listening to country music and still do. For this no photo page, I used music paper from a hymnal and children's music book. The lyrics aren't important, just the music notes as a way to convey the theme.
Lots of mists and stencils add some bright 70's colors. To create the word Cool, I downloaded a pair of glasses for the Silhouette and filled them in with vellum.
The page is more mixed media than traditional scrapbooking. I love that we can do so many fun things in this hobby. Try it. It's just glue, ink and paper!
