About Me

Maybe-not-really-20-something-anymore from Norway who likes to scrapbook and take photos documentarystyle and dreams of photojournalism when not working as a photojournalist and that's pretty much what this blog is about. And I like it this way.



My Scrapbooking

Been scrapbooking since late fall 2005. Currently fortunate enough to be a part of the design teams for Hambly Screenprints, Fancy Pants Designs and Pencil-Lines. ♥

~~ Black

Posted by Ania On Monday, November 06, 2006
When I feel a bit down and sad, this is what always makes me feel alright. I know - it's supposedly a sad song, it's a song about a breakup, it's a song about wanting someone the best even though it doesn't mean you... But what it means to me makes me feel alright. The feelings it invokes in me makes me feel safe. I feel comfortable. And I appreciate what I have so much more. I love the mellow songs from Pearl Jam. Yellow Ledbetter, Last Kiss....and this one.... Black...if you get the chance, do check out the mellow songs of PJ. And oh. A layout I did yesterday after a challenge to use all black/white and only one color from the picture.


Sheets of empty canvas, untouched sheets of clay
Were laid spread out before me as her body once did
All five horizons revolved around her soul
As the earth to the sun
Now the air I tasted and breathed has taken a turn
Ooh, and all I taught her was everything
Ooh, I know she gave me all that she wore
And now my bitter hands chafe beneath the clouds
Of what was everything?
Oh, the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed Everything...

I take a walk outside
I'm surrounded by some kids at play
I can feel their laughter, so why do I stare
Oh, and twisted thoughts that spin round my head
I'm spinning, oh, I'm spinning
How quick the sun can, drop away
And now my bitter hands cradle broken glass
Of what was everything
All the pictures sad, all been washed in black, tattooed everything...
All the love gone bad turned my world to black
Tattooed all I see, all that I am, all I will be...yeah...
Uh huh...uh huh...ooh...
I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a star
In somebody else's sky, but why, why, why
Can't it be, can't it be mine

    Så nydelig layout av deg og mannen din. Digger de papirene du har brukt. Jeg må si det nok en gang; du er så produktiv.... :O) Hver gang jeg kikker innom blogen din, som er hver eneste dag, så finner jeg nye innlegg, mednye layouter... :o)
    Takk for at du inspirerer meg....

    Ha en fortsatt strålende mandag!

    Så flott layout, Ania!! Jeg digger det linjerte papiret fra CI. Har et ark i kremfarget selv og driver stadig og legger det til side i påvente av et bilde som passer til.

    Vet godt hva du mener med triste sanger; en gang hørte jeg på Jeff Buckleys (eller egentlig Cohens, men jeg syns Jeff Buckley synger den mye bedre) Hallelujah i 5 dager i strekk. Det var dog et litt ekstremt tilfelle, men jeg tror sangen hjalp ;)

    For en nydelig LO du har laget av deg og mannen din. Det arket er bare helt fantastisk flott.
    Første Møte med Snø - LOen din var knall fin. Utrolig herlig bilde. LOL.
    Og jeg må si som synnøve; at jeg slutter aldri å forbause meg over hvor mye nytt det er her inne hver gang jeg titter innom. Alltid så gøy å komme "på besøk" til deg. :) Takk for at du deler!!

    Ha en flott uke. :O)

    Den LO'en av deg og mannen er kjempeflott!
