Finally, I know ! XD It took me this long to change it because well, I really liked the previous one, and I also didn’t have much free time to make another one ^^”
But here you go, New Year, New Layout ! XD
Behind the first cut there’s an explanation about the layout, and behind the second cut there is a Poll, which I would really appreciate if all of you answer to it. Thanks ^^
This one was a real fun to make, but also very hard. All the recent TRC events (you know, everybody turning into “bad guys”) inspired me to do it XD I wanted to play a joke with them xD
I took Franz Ferdinand’s song “The Fallen” and based the whole thing on it. I needed to cover the japanese texts that came in the colored image somehow (because I took the magazine scan), so I threw parts of the song which I thought suited the image (and also that I liked) as though they were cut from a magazine.
Then, as I was doing it, I realized it would look cool if the entire thing looked like it was all hand-made. So I also threw some cut-ups, adhesive tapes, glue, a ribbon and some scribblings (these last two I even scanned myself xD).
The pictures in the upper part of the layout represent their happy past, which seem so distance now. I tried to make them look rather old, like they had been taken a long time ago, and they are in contrast with the vivid colors of the main image, which represent their present.
I threw some pictures taken from real magazine covers of the 50’s, and for that I blame the Pop Art project I did for my university. I thought they would increase the “collage” feeling (and also because I really like the 50’s xD).
Sakura is holding a board in which you can read my favorite line of the song lyrics. I love the irony of it ^^ And that was also written and scanned by me xDDD
Ah, the background, yeah. It’s an interview CLAMP did for Puff magazine.
For those interested in the song, which I strongly recommend, I uploaded it here (Right Click -> Save Target As….).
I did a wallpaper version too (1024×768) for those interested in it ^^
Thanks for casting your vote !
