Livin' in The City

I love New York- more than ever.
MATERIALS: American Crafts Travel kit and Patchwork alphas. Hipstamatic photos
Here is a second page for the Moxie Cityscapes Are On The Rise Challenge. Tomorrow April 28th, 2011 is the deadline. I'm LOVING the projects I'm seeing there! The stamps entrants are using are making me DROOL! I bought a beautiful rolling one over at ScarletLime I haven't used yet but it got me doodling which is something I'm usually TERRIFIED of but I told myself to wing it, have fun and I really love the results! 
Doodled and cut out buildings- this was TOO MUCH FUN!
This is actually a title line taken from a wall mural painted on September 11th, 2001.
 With all the awful international news these days
 I wanted to do a serious page that didn't get too specific.
I wish the Hipstamatic app allowed for high resolution images-
2 inches square is as large as you can make them without getting pixelation-
this shot mesmerized me and FORCED me to do a second page.
I hope they allow for multiple entries. I have been obsessed with making a good cityscape page for a while. Living in New York, I constantly take photos of the skyline, the bridges, the graffiti, the lights at night but very few turn out as intended. I haven't been able to get that one beautiful shot or design a city page I'm truly happy with but I keep trying.
This is my latest attempt. Moxie Fab world is a great blog for ideas and inspiration- stop by and check it out.

MuChOs SmOoChEs!

  4. Such a fun and funky page. I really like your color palette, the random placement of the photos and your cityscape rocks. Great work!
