The "over-embellished" layout....*winks*


90

 I don't really start my layouts from "scratch". I usually have a residual-misted cardstock base that I "decide" that I have to use...and then work from there....


Now that would be easy if I kept my photos in black and white or sepia. But my mum always "complains" when photos are not in colour [so I only make them b/w if the photo quality is really terrible]. 


And I also have a tendency to glue things down once I find a place for them [to reduce the fiddling time]. 

 

Then of course, add more embellishments to correct my "mistakes"....hence this "over-embellished" layout. *winks*

Playing along with Stuck?! Challenges.

P/s: Photos were taken at my grand-aunt's 90th birthday celebration...where my sister and dad had fun playing "dress-up"! :)

You are so lucky that your family allows you to use them in your work and they are so lucky that you are visually documenting their lives. Thumbs up on this fun layout.

It looks really cool! I don't think I've ever glued something down until I knew what the whole design would look like. My minimalist style doesn't work well with 'add embellishments to cover mistakes.' You are the master of embellishing!

Love these fabulous pics and the great design.

Audrey Pettit said...

Haha, LOVE those photos and LOVE your layout design! I really adore how you arranged all the photos and added detail right on top, and love the silhouette cut photo layered onto the black circle. Such a great way to call special emphasis to that one photo, and love how you added the journaling all around the image. Seriously eye catching and fun!
