Here is a layout that has had an extreme makeover! I do mean extreme! One thing I have learned about memory keeping is to practice…Practice??? Wait a Darn Minute isn’ t this suppose to be a Hobby??????? Yes it is a hobby but its also a hobby geared towards leaving a legacy, I think that adds a bit of a caveat. As a memory keeper I want to have all the necessary components with my story telling. For Example, how do I want to tell My story? Do my elements relate to my story? Have I clouded up the photo that I have lost the story. These are the elements I like to include in my layouts….Every layout. Now with that said I still miss a few elements but I am working on that as I am new to the hobby too. Here is my Inspiration I used for this layout.
I love how the tags draw you to the photo. What a great way to use the cut-a-part sheets ..I simply love it. Here is my take:
Things I wanted to accomplish:
1. Brighten up this NOT great photo.
2. Use a Circular Picture
3. Use Black, White and Gold
4. Use My Stamps
5. Use My Sewing Machine
6. Use Washi Tape
I punched several circles and ran the circles through the embossing folders, stamped a few, used some Gold Lame and left some plain. I grabbed some Wood Embellishments and filled them with sequins. Used my Big Shot and cut my photo out in a circle. I used a metallic marker put my journaling on a cut our circle….done.
