I've been going crazy with the layouts lately! All kinds of crazy. First of all, I'm a double page, multiple photo gearle. However, of the last nine layouts or so, seven of them have been one pagers! What's up with that?? Next, I used to be lucky to get one or two layouts done per month (except July, when I am not working) and I've completed three in the last ten days -- the last two for the same challenge over at Club CK. Crazy, right? I know for some of you, that's nothing, but for me it's quite prolific! It's like I got started and cannot stop (I have another nearly completed on my workspace)! OK, here's my latest...and I made several mistakes that I'd love to share!
this awesome layout (by corrie over at You, Me & Crazy) that I pinned just a week ago. As soon as I saw it, I knew I would lift it, and I knew which photo I would use!
Most of the papers came from a Scrapbook Circle Kit :: Daydreamer (tons of Amy Tangerine), and it's all linked below.
I started with the yellow paper and added my mask and ink. Then the confetti. After the glue dried, I took the spray bottle apart and used the end of the nozzle to put some bigger dabs of ink on the paper and let it dry for a long time (I'll get back to that later). I cut the middle out of the pink backgroud paper because I knew I wanted to us that behind my photo. Next I went to glue the yellow and pink paper together. When I pressed it down, I messed up the paint. Badly. I tried to mess it up a bit more, thinking it would make it look like I meant to do that, but that didn't work. Mostly because I had purposely painted and glued in the diagonal, and much of the paint had smeared horizontal. I almost cried! But then I decided to just cover it up. I got out the little Amy Tangerine banners (misted them a bit, cut them a bit, etc.) and then hid the worst part behind them (on the left). I had to adjust my title a bit and then put more banners up at the top to balance it all out, but it ended up working. I added some hidden journaling, clipped it on with a fun little clip, and it was done! The last mistake I didn't notice until all of the photos had been taken and I was putting it in the album. I had completely forgotten that I had used part of that pink paper already -- SOOOO it's not 12x12! Argh! (let's just keep that our little secret) Eh. I just went with it. I've been doing that a lot more lately, which is likely why I have been getting more layouts done!
Here are a few close ups:
