The evolution of this layout was very different for me - the page ended up completely different from how I thought it would! (Does that ever happen to you?) I started with the criteria for this month's challenge at From Screen 2 Scrap in mind: create a layout inspired by the movie poster for "What About Eve" and include 4 brightly colored arrows, hearts, and a photo with half or quarter of a face. Well, I had this photo of Ailis from my June photo challenge, so I went from there, gathering all my brightly colored papers and arrows, and this sketch from Creative Scrappers:
If you look at the poster from "What About Eve", it's all primary colors, black and white, and curved arrows, and I fully intended to stick to that, but the more I fiddled, the more I realized this wasn't going to work with my subject. Don't ask why, I'm still not sure of the reason! All I know is that with all the doodles on this page, it is WAY OUT THERE, even for me! I don't hate it, but I'm not sure if I love it either, although it is growing on me the more I look at it. Weird!
Here's a bit of a close up of the pin I used. I've had these pins (they came with a kit I won) for a while, and I've had trouble figuring out what to do with them. Finally, I came up with an idea: gather up some ribbon and put some beads in between! That is one part I definitely like!
Enjoy, and please let me know what you think of this page. Your feedback is always much appreciated!
