The challenge for this week is to use the sketch below with one of the phases. I choose 'Enjoy the little things' as it fits in with the nature theme. if you would like to join us and have a chance to win some goodies then look no further www.thememorynest.blogspot.co.uk. Share your projects and the team will leave some comments on your blog too.
I used a combination of Dear Lizzy with Papermania Spots and Stripe Bright's papers and embellishments. I found the colours livened up the photo which was taken on an overcast day. I just love to use lots of different colours and I just happen to have accumulated a lot of this range of papers.
I always try to group my page elements in groups of 3 or 5 as this is the most easy on the eye, something to do with the way our brain works means that certain patterns are more appealing then others. I am no brain scientist but if it looks pretty i'm sticking it on.
I created a petal boarder using the new Xcut A5 flower die-set, I folded them in the centre to make them stand out more. I found this helped the photo blend in a bit better.
I look forward to seeing all your creations.
