ScrapFIT Reveal: Love is a Battlefield

The Workout:
This is my last month on ScrapFIT as my term is quickly drawing to a close, and this is my second to last reveal. I have to say I found all the challenges very interesting it made me create things I normally wouldn't have made. Here is the latest challenge as posted today on ScrapFIT:

#59- Be Inspired By The Music! 
"I love 80’s music and we are working out with Pat Benatar this week!  Her song ‘Love Is A Battlefield ‘ is your inspiration for this workout!  I can't wait to see how this makes you move!  You can find the lyrics hereNow its your turn to show us how this song makes you move!  Link up your layout or card to Mr. Linky by January 31st for a chance to win!"

My Reveal:
I read through the lyrics of the song, watched the video and then read some articles about it.  It was very different from what I remembered as a kid when I watched the video back in the early 80s. I didn't have any photos about teenage rebellion, so I went in a different direction.

Workout #59 -  War is a Battlefield
My sister sent me these photos of my nephew participating in Jedi training at Disneyland. It is like a mini-show where they choose kids from the audience, let them borrow a Jedi robe and light saber, and teach them some fighting techniques. At the end they battle Darth Vader or Darth Maul. 

The Details:
In terms of the challenge, I changed love into war, sorry, and placed a main star in front of the title, so the title actually reads (Star) War is a Battlefield, sorry also for incorrect subject verb agreement but it can't be helped. I cut out a yellow star and layered it on top of a black one for a shadow effect. I then stitched silver embroidery floss around the layered stars to tie in the silver metal star pendant I glued on top. The silver star is from Prima Marketing and looks like a piece of jewelry. It even has the hole for a chain so I tied a piece of ribbon there to make it look more like an embellishment. 
Title - (Star) War is a Battlefield
I used a travel themed collection from Imaginisce called Bon Voyage which has a masculine color scheme. Also the compass points in the patterned paper looked like stars to me so I thought it tied in nicely with my theme. Besides the patterned papers, I also utilized the matching die cut sheet. I liked a tiny die cut that said, "Welcome to our land, you are now in" and I added Tomorrow Land which is the location of the Jedi training. 

There was also a larger die cut entitled "Day Pass" which was perfect for my journaling block, it reminded me of the entrance pass. I actually made this layout when I was at an all day crop and I was sitting next to my friend Becky who had a tower of brads. One layer had star brads and she graciously gave me some, so the itty bitty gray stars are from her collection. The layout design is based from a sketch from Allison Davis' one page layout sketchbook, but you can find other sketches designed by her here
