"Awesome" Scrapbook Layout + process video by Louise

 Hi Crafters


I've got a new page to share "Awesome"


Let's be honest (and feel free to leave me honest comments) - I just don't love this layout.
I started with an idea in mind and despite creating something I don't hate I just can't warm to this page.

Firstly I've used the

to create a striped background.

Then for some colour and texture I've added lots of "Fossilized Amber" Distress Crayon and splatters.



I added some stencilled texture to the background and smudged on some Distress Crayon "Fossilized Amber".

 

At this point, I'd chosen a cluster and added a doily - I think the doily was wrong.
It was too pretty for the MM background so I ended up messing it up a little, by tearing some parts of it away.

Still not happy with this page, I ended up adding some stamping and wood veneer pieces from Cocoa Vanilla Studio "You Rock" collection.

  1. I really like the page ... what is it you don't like? The photo is the focal point and you've got some great layers of texture.

    1. Thanks Gab. Not sure. I think mostly it just didn't look the way I thought it would in my mind. I also think because I really struggled to finish it I have negative feelings towards the page. LOL
      I definitely don't hate it but I think I'll probably scrap this photo again so that I have a memory I love :)

  2. Understandably, you need to love your creation as it is for you to treasure the memory, but for others, it is a beautiful layout! I'd love to see the photo again some time to see what you do to it but thanks so much for sharing the good and the not so good - it makes us all feel better about our own projects:) Have a wonderful new year!

    1. Thanks Ann. I think it's important to share the good and bad. Especially because what I don't really like, some people will love.
      Happy new year to you.
      Looking forward to a fun 2018.
