I, Adam, have a confession to make... it's messy, it's a bit dirty, and it's not my finest quality but today I'm sharing it with all of you. So here it goes.....
I am a packrat! Now, hold on a second. I'm not to the stage of being featured on TLC's show about hoarders or to the point where I need an intervention! I just like my stuff and I struggle with parting with some things from time to time. Especially things that I know could be useful in the future, and for once my inability to throw things away actually worked in my favor. Let me explain! :)
It all goes back to my 9th Grade Art Class. Our assignment was to make a layered "tape" painting. Although the painting as a whole was a horrendous mess, certain areas had a lot of potential! Many opportunities came to throw this painting away over the past few years, but I just couldn't part with it. The painting landed on a shelf collecting dust... that is until the other week!
While flipping through the mail, a new GAP flier caught my eye. The paint styled text sparked my creativity and I instantly had the perfect plan for a new template design! It was the perfect project to incorporate my 9th grade art! I went to work, combining my old "hoarded" painting with a little digital magic and TAH DAH the Modern Artistry 4x8 Accordion Book was born! From 2004 to 2013, this template design has been a work in progress! I'm so glad I didn't throw that painting away!
Here's a look at how it all came together!
