Well this weeks SLYMI challenge on UKS was to follow this sketch. Aaaaaaaargh! I disliked the sketch so much that i left it until yesterday to complete the challenge. But a challenge is there for making us try something new, so, complete it it did.
and....here is my page, i used Cosmo Cricket patterned paper for a bit of interest in the background, made a mirror image of the sketch, added a bracket to frame the journalling, a bit of lace, and picked a really cute pic of Hannah from way back. Photographed it, uploaded it, job done.
As is my habit i blu-tacked the most recent page up in the kitchen, i have the three most recent LOs of the kids up, to give me a bit of inspiration, and the kids like to see them there before they go into their albums. Well, this LO kept looking at me accusingly.. "I'm not finished, you know...., you need to add more to me.... look at all this space that needs a little something adding etc, etc"
SO, I gave in, took it down and below is the page after i added a few extras.Not much extra added, a doodled border around the edge, a bit of stitching, and a few die cut flowers and pearl brads. Don't want to influence you in any way... which is your preference? Is it better, more finished, or have i simply copped out and white space is the way forward?
Even after the additions, when Hannah came home her comment was, " i like it Mum, but it's not like one of your usual layouts!"
