Almost late with my first layout of the month. Do you have some creative moments when the design just takes a little longer to finish than others? Well, this layout was one of those for me and then having a deadline coming down on me causes pressure which is not good for creativity. I think the message in there is to get my act together earlier - it is just that life is so busy all the time these days and I do not get that considering I live out in rural Australia!
So, this layout I used one of the new Christmas papers as I really wanted to utilise the green of the paper as the photo I am going to put in this layout is one of a child peaking through some leaves and flowers.
To create the photo matte, I used a variety of Altair Art paper scraps from all my various layouts. I then dug through my die cut pieces and found these groovy squiggles from ScrapFX to use coming out from the image and built on those with flowers and a few other pieces.
Hope you like it, I really do and I cannot wait to put the pic in it when my daughter finally gives it to me! Enjoy all. See you later in the month.
