The Haight Story, Part 1

Last weekend we made our fist official visit to the Haight as Ms AC's new 'hood.  I was happily snapping pictures like a tourist.  But since there are so many tourists who visit this area, I was not at all out of place.

Like many others, I was struck by these legs sticking out of the second story window of this building, which turns out to be the Piedmont Boutique.

Thought it made a good subject for a simple scraplift in basically black & white with a touch of red.  The challenge of the scraplift was to use elements from three different designers.  

I used:
  • Anna Aspnes ArtPlay Palette Crazy Life for the overlays, peace sign transfers and grunginess
  • Maya de Groot Ooh La La for the frame, swirl and word art
  • Joanne Brisbois Count The Ways for the papers, Eiffel Tower, awning and fleur-de-lis
The page was featured as a Gallery Standout at DigiShop Talk on March 31.
