So over at SJ's there is an intriguing challenge. Sarah has started a layout, given us the dimensions and positions for us to copy, then we all split off and finish it however we like. Sort of a jump start to a layout - no thinking until half way through.
I've used my Counterfeit Kit for all my supplies.
Here is my start;
It's almost the same measurements as Sarah's, but as I was using my more-than-half-used kit I had to make do with the paper pieces I had left.
Here (with a little too much flash) is my finished layout;
I've decided that a) I print far too many photos and b) I'm never going to get round to putting all the photos I have on layouts. My solution = stuff an envelope pocket with 5 photos. They are all in the first few days of life when everything warranted a photo. (Mind you, :) I still think everything warrants a photo!) When he is bigger and wants to look through he can easily slip the photos out of the pocket. I added a few enamel dots, using similar colours to the paper they were stuck over. They don't stand out too much but I don't think they need to - all the pattern is enough 'busy' for the page. Self coloured dots just add a little subtle interest.
I really enjoyed half lifting a layout, and think I'll use this technique again, especially when I'm a little stuck for ideas. Thanks Sarah!
Thanks for stopping by...
