What do you do when you are told to use 12 paper strips, a multiple opening frame, one photo in one opening, and blend another supporting photo into the background? Here is what came from those instructions:
I don't always follow instructions properly and misinterpreted one of the instructions, as usual. I did blend the photo of myself into the background, but had it in the bottom left photo opening, which made no sense to me at the time. Then when I peeked at the other scrappers' layouts, I realized my erroneous assumption. Duh. So I simply reduced the saturation on the offending photo and made it a bit bigger. Would have never thought to do it this way in just doing a layout on my own, but I do really like the effect of where it is, kind of on top of the plane.
I tend to do everything backwards....I have a sort of idea of my layout results and work backwards to attain it. Exactly opposite of what I have to do in following a formula.
The other scrappers did a fabulous job on their layouts. You can see them all here in the SpeedScrap thread #15 at Hummie's World
And here is what our lovely Chiara had to say about all the layouts posted. She summed them up perfectly:
".. Every single layout had something original and unique, so inspiring! For
example the frame tilted, or the "secondary" photo blended on the
curved-at-the-end filmstrip, the circle photoframe, the very-big-photo
blended on the paper, the paper strips with "adorable blessings"...I
know I forgot something here, but ladies..you all did amazing pages with
the speed crop ^__^"
