I love Amy Tan's blog posts when she shares the creative process on one of her layouts. I'm no Amy Tan (although we do share the same birthday...) but I like the idea and decided to make a post of my own.
Here's a layout I made for one of the LOAW challenges at the SC forum this month. It's about submitting a project you made. I chose the use of wooden elements.
I wanted a gridbased layout, so I started out like this:
I picked up the green from the Kesi'art polkadot PP, and embossed the number stamp in the opposite corner:
Then I added the wood veneer frame painted with Pony Mister Huey and the photo.
Last I placed out the title and embellishments. I thought the butterfly and plane went well with the "Let your mind soar" journaling.
Materials: SC January kit County Fair with add-ons Ringtoss and Photo Booth, plus SC wood veneer frames and Mister Huey in Pony.
