and today I'm sharing the layout that was also part of that challenge.
You can find the original layout that was chosen for me to interpret here.
So, yeah. The interpretation is fairly loose.
What I most wanted to capture was the texture and movement in the original
and I'm very happy with my results.
The arrows are enough to make you weep, aren't they?
It's a stencil from The Crafter's Workshop that I saw at Paper Issues
and HAD TO HAVE.
I'll go ahead and apologize in advance for all of the projects you'll see from me
that are covered in arrows.
My inspiration layout had gorgeous handmade flowers featuring Tim Holtz' Tattered Florals die.
You know I love flowers, but I didn't want them overpowering this page.
So I made these out of wax paper.
Archival safe? Nope. But after running them through an embossing folder they gave me the texture I was looking for, so I threw caution to the wind and went with it.
(An update in a year to show how they melted to the page would be pretty funny, no?)
One tiny strip of the Amy Tangerine paper that I love so dearly
seems to accentuate the free, fun spirit of the photo.
I'm so glad I joined in this fun challenge.
This is the first layout I've created in a few months and now my mojo is definitely rejuvenated.
I signed up again for the next round and can't wait to get started!
