I love this picture of Morgan, have used it so many times! it was taken last year, 22 January 201,1 at Aunty Janice's wedding. Morgan was a flower girl and wonderful Heather Stevens was the photographer and snapped this shot of her while we were all getting dressed. it is a real candid shot and just so perfect.
I used Graphic 45 papers for this layout, yummy communique range. I absolutely love their papers and always try to show people that you can use them in so many ways. i know a lot of scrappers don't want to/don't like to or don't know how to play with and experiment with their papers. i use everyday, coloured pictures and don't always scrap with a vintage style.
Here are a few close ups:
The red flowers pick up the photo mat and i thought the flower cluster just finished off the page nicely. For the g45 staples flowers i used the tim holtz distress blending tool and added some colour to them with ink.
Stamping is great on lo, adds interest.I also stamped around the photo mat, on the shaped vanilla cardstock. I alternated between stamped clock and rubon. i used the g45 ribbons to add texture to the page. the postage stamp is fussy cut and raised with foam tape to add dimension.
the hidden tag hold journalling of the day when Morgan was a flower girl. the border detail is punched with my new Knock outs border punch - just loving them!
i really didn't like this layout when i started, just wasn't coming together the way i imagined. After adding a few textures, dimensions and flowers it started to look like something! Guess the trick is to keep at it, play around with different elements until you find the one that fits. And remember, there really are no mistakes and very few 'rules' in scrapbooking - unleash your innerself......
