Ugh (and India)

The thing about depression is that even when you feel you’ve been doing really well for a really long time, it will suddenly sneak up on you and just suck the life out of you all over again.

Bah.

I’m trying to hang in there by scrapbooking (usually the best therapy), but I seem to have come down with Reverse Midas Syndrome – everything I touch turns to crap. Therefore I’m posting some old stuff instead, starting with two layouts from my SoY entry. The first is one of the eight previously seen layouts:

Shore Temple

…and this is one of the 12 new ones I made:

Sonya

Both of them are from our honeymoon in India. I wanted to keep the India layouts cohesive, so I decided to use the same fonts (from Quickutz) throughout the whole album, as well as sticking to easy, simple designs (most of the time, heh). Some other double spreads:

Taj Mahal

Beach Bums

Taj Mahal

This is not a typo; we were looking forward to drinking coconut water but it tasted like arse:

COCOnot

I also make one-pagers for the album:

Parag Monsoon

India Crocbank

How to drape a sari Tiger Caves

Ambassador Pancha Rathas

Runde vidunder Palolem Beach

Dropadi Tempel*

Alright, that took all the energy I have right now. Off for some me-time.

    It was some of these layouts that were posted on 2Peas, that first caught my eye. I have since been so taken by your scrapping. Thank you for all of the inspiration!!

    RMS eh? Happens all the time *rolls eyes* :p masse lekkert her da :D Imponert over at du er så standhaftig mht India-albumet..men kanskje jeg hadde vært det samme om jeg hadde hatt så mange lekre bilder da :D

    Ingenting er så pyton, som når du er på vei fremover, og så må ta ett eller flere skritt tilbake :o( Been there, done that, selvom jeg ikke har depresjoner. Men psyken kan slå oss ut på mange forskjellige måter. *stor klem*

    Tøfft å bruke samme font gjennom hele albumet, som en rød tråd, nydelige LO’er du lager. :o)

    Håper dagen din i morgen blir bedre!

    Jeg sender deg en liten oppmuntringsklem. Jeg føler med deg og vet hvordan du har det. Sliter med det samme selv og tilbakesteg er ikke noe særlig.

    Ellers må jeg bare si at jeg elsker stilen din og disse LO`ene over her er bare helt fantastisk. Kjenner jeg har lyst til å besøke de stedene du har vært bare med å se på albumsidene dine :) Fantastiske.

    Big hugs from me

    Reverse Midas Touch is hillarious. I hate it when I have depressed days and I hate it when other people feel down too. For me, I try to remember that sometimes I have to feel down because if i didn’t, than I would have happy days either.
    Your LO’s are amazing, love the look of them. Great job!

  11. jamie k Says:

    ingunn, these are beautiful!! they seriously are so simple as to not take away from the beauty of your pictures. I would’ve never picked India as a honeymoon destination, but it looks wonderful!!

    Etter alle dine LOer og nylig kinobesøk for å se The Darjeeling Limited er det nesten så jeg får pusteproblemer når jeg tenker på hvor mye jeg har lyst til å dra til India! Ja, ja.. Jeg tar the west indies nå i vinter, så får jeg drømme videre om India!
    Håper du føler deg bedre allerede. Har ingen gode vibber å sende, for jeg har ingen slike selv om dagen :( Men en klem sender jeg over havet!
