'City Life' – Inspired By A Screen Printed T-Shirt

See larger image

Nothing terribly complicated about this layout, but in fact it is the simplicity of the design that adds power to the journaling.

A few weeks back we went to the pub with Craig’s work colleagues and one guy was wearing a yellow T-shirt that had a print on the front. The design was of city buildings and skyscrapers, and there was a sunburst emanating from behind the silhouette of the buildings. I was instantly inspired, and I reckon I must have spent most of the evening staring at his shirt. I hope i didn’t creep him out.

But it was this design on that t-shirt that inspired this layout, and it is probably appropriate that I show this to you all this week as I am currently back in Northern Ireland visiting the family, back in the village with no bank, no trains, no supermarkets, no coffee shops….but don’t worry, even though Brookeborough is pretty remote, it will always hold a special place in my heart.

Journaling reads:

Brookeborough will always hold a special place in my heart but it doesnt compare to living in a city. Sure I miss seeing the stars and the serenity of the countryside but i’ve got so accustomed to having everything within reach: shops, transport, bank, cinema, and walking to work is just too convenient. I guess I like life in the city.

Thanks for looking and leave me a comment here.
