For the second challenge Erin and I had to show how we interpret Cabin Fever. We decided on a not so scrappy, dark mood and let ‘The Shining’ with Jack Nicholson inspire us. A lot of vignetting on the main picture, blending very dark papers, I think we got the mood right and show the boredom of being stuck inside.

for the word “Crazy” – Laundromat 1967
The gloom, the grey, the snow, the ice.
It’s too wet, too cold, too dark, too slippery to go out.
Sometimes it can make one feel a little bit CRAZY.
Makes me think of “The Shining’. If a few bad spirits were
thrown into the equation here, CRAZY could actually happen.
After the holidays, there is not much money left either, so
indoor activities outside of the house are limited.
We are in the 2 longest months now. Jan and Feb. The ones
that seem to go on forever, leaking the gloom all over the place,
so thick you could slip in it. Lets hope not. Let’s hope we don’t
fall into Cabin Fever CRAZY this year.
And I couldn’t be happier, this layout has been fingerpointed at Gallery Standouts!!!
This really made my day, we have been very working hard on it.
