Here is one of the layouts I started at Creative Accents Saturday night for Tara's b-day crop. I knew I wanted to use this sketch from Sketchy Thursdays:
as soon as I saw it because I had printed out a bunch of small prints the last time I was in the big smoke (Williams Lake, that is, and I know all the Lakers are laughing when I say Williams Lake is the "big smoke"!) I don't know how happy I am with how this turned out. I remember sitting there at 9 p.m. saying, "I've been here working on this for how long? And I've got 3 photos and some strips of paper on my page!" Anyway, once I got it home, I did a bit more work on it, adding the journaling and title and a bit of machine stitching (helps everything stay together!), but I can't help feeling like it needs a bit more pizzazz. On the up side, at least the photos and journaling are really dominant, right?
