Layout Challenge

This one really got me thinking outside my "usual" scrapping style and I loved both challenge and result.
Very arty aka:messy.
Here is the inspiration:
The result:
Took inspiration from bold grungy image with bright yellow background, large white title and the smaller writing at the bottom:
...Firstly, scrunch sheet tissue paper,
...spread glue onto background paper, on top place tissue paper in messy, random way,
...Use edge of scrap card to spread splodge of white paint over background,
...squeeze small splats of paint over the top,
...add photo,
...add title (used wrong side (plain side) of letters)
...print words "i am a computer addict" repeatedly onto paper and cut into strip,
...trim this and rip edges the place underneath photo,
...add brackets to focus on laptop,
.........
As wanted grungy effect photo I changed to black and white with slight yellow tinge then cropped.
Thanks for looking.

Glad you had fun making this - it is great to just run with the inspiration and enjoy making something different to your usual style. I really like the font you chose for the title, it works really well. Thanks for playing along :) Mel x

Wow Lorna.. well done.
Really modern L/O I wish I was good at this style of work.
I'll just have to practice.. maybe join in the challenge.
I agree the font is great.
Reminds me of "never mind the buzzcocks for some reason"
