It's a simple LO, I know! I could have finished this one in half an hour if I hadn't stared at it all afternoon thinking I really should add some kind of technique, some kind of feature item to make it somewhat "special". However, my best friend Vicky, who spent the afternoon scrapping with me, told me not all LO's have to be difficult, and I guess she's right. So Marit, because it's a LO of you, I wanted to honour you and make it more of an artsy LO, but ... fate decided otherwise. I told you all once before that once I start scrapping, the outcome of the LO seems out of my control, and this one was no different.
I used Picknik to edit my pictures and give it this green/yellowish look which I totally love ... thanks Jenneke for recommending it, it's so easy to use and the results are stunning! I guess it's because the pics turned out so vibrant that I didn't feel like adding too much colour anymore.
Now, you might not see the resemblance right away, but I started out from this sketch for the Artful Delight November challenge:
Once I started playing with all of the different elements, they all changed place a bit, but they are still there. I used three photo's in stead of 6 blocks, placed the paper originally at the bottom on the left hand side, and used the shape of the round flower to make my title (which says "Sometimes it just clicks" btw - and oops, for the dutchies: I just noticed I miss a 't' ... ah well, too late to do anything about that now!!). I haven't worked with sketches all that much, so I don't know of this is "allowed" or not, but it seemed rather funny to me how you can start from one point and head over in an entire different direction. Still, the sketch really helped me create my take on the design, and I think I will begin to use sketches more often from now on.
Off to make another LO ... so glad my will to create is back again!!!
