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!

Watch the process at YouTube:

  1. WOW! I've been doing lots of mixed media canvases recently, and this is an excellent example of a mixed media scrapbook page! I'm going to have to give it a go. I love your subject matter here, the cool glasses, and the really great colors and design. Thanks for sharing some inspiration. :-)

  2. Lisa, this is a wonderful layout. Love the colors.

  3. Love those glasses, so cute.
