This layout drove me crazy...


Okay-it's-a-love-thing

I'm not one to throw out projects even though some projects drive me crazy mid-way...*winks* I go by Tim Gunn's catchphrase, "Make it work!" 

Like on this layout. 


I love this outtake photo of the three nephews rallying around their sister...while she is totally camera ready with her smile. So I matted the photo on glitter cardstock and fussy-cut some SEI floral paper. But the flowers were initially white and didn't quite go with the photo because the kids were in bright clothing and that red fire hydrant was just screaming for attention! [I know..I tend to exaggerate...*LOL*]

Luckily, I managed to find a red sentiment/title strip in my paper scraps [yay!]...and then I added a red ribbon tab to pull my focal point together in a visual triangle. 


Then I coloured the flowers and leaves with gelatos + water + paintbrush for a watercolour effect. I defined them further by outlining with a white pen. And finished with some bling and little outtake photos on the filmstrip.:)
