    Welcome to the Monthly Muse for March 2019!!

    Week 2 - Book Spines

    Sorry for my delay on this one!

    My next spot of inspiration comes from seeing books all lined up in a row. The colors, the strong vertical rectangle designs, the way the titles interact with each other. I thought it would be perfect for a MUSE on books. I also found a neat challenge when I was looking at inspiration photos & that was for something called "Spine Poetry". I added that to the inspiration graphic too in case that's the direction your page wants to take you. I'm thinking mine might be a bit like titling different parts of my life as if they were each different books. We'll see where that idea might take me!

    I'm really excited to see if you are as inspired by this design as I am. And if you try the Spine Poetry with actual books I'd love to see that too in addition to your page!!!

    [page coming soon!]

    Please post your layout to the Art Journaling Gallery HERE prior to March 31st and then post it in this thread by copying the code (at the right of your gallery image) from the box under "Share BB Code".

    We will draw a winner at the beginning of next month for a coupon!! You can use any products in The Lilypad store or retired products from current Lilypad designers, (just make sure you follow our gallery guidelines).

    If you have any questions, ask here!

    Have fun!!!

    This was quite fun to do. I had no idea what I'd end up with, but my "poem" naturally gravitated to the flooding in our town. Fortunately for us, we live about 1 1/2 miles away from where this photo was taken yesterday, hence "we were the lucky ones".

    It reads:
    A Page Out of Life
    Here on Earth
    Flatterland
    Chance Developments
    The End of the Road
    Trapped
    The Year of the Flood
    So Big
    Castle of Water
    Cane River
    We Were the Lucky Ones.

    I didn't use actual books and I found the haiku on the web, so not as creative as some, but here is my ATC for this challenge:

    Unique idea! I am SO NOT a reader ( and not a poet either)--- returning to school twice as an adult & teaching burned out that part of me, :eyerolllol. I still may try...

    You definitely don't have to go the poem route! You can just be inspired by the shapes and colors or anything!

    I had never heard of Book Spine Poetry but I think could be addictive. Here's mine from my personal library.

    It reads " An Elderly Lady is up to No Good
    Are You Really That STUPID? (felt bad about that one, but maybe it could be that the guilty are blaming the elderly lady! lol!)
    YOU.ARE.THE.ONE.
    Secrets Never Die
    Say You're Sorry
    The Reckoning

    thank you for the muse. I was inspired today, looking at my bookshelves, and how they are all organised by category. My life has different aspects to it that fill my time or my mind. So I created a set of books for each aspect. The spines don't all colour co-ordinate or anything so I pulled papers from different kits my different designers.

    I'm away from home and my books so I thought I'd try to make a poem with one of my favorite authors. I used SWL Template Revisited 45 for my book spines.
