VC #8-Building/Landscape challenge
Oooh, I actually have lots of ideas already.
so that's what the homework was for! :) great idea!
I liked the curves in #35 so I tried to duplicate the lines. Here was my effort, not sure I like it.
Stephanie, I like that page! Colors are perfect. Not sure if there's much "story" but you could add a small journaling box next to the picture.
It is okay Shannon, there will actually be a second page for this layout just haven't done it yet :)
First of all, I want to say thank you so much for posting this challenge! The picture I chose (I think it's pretty obvious which one I picked ;)) really got me excited about scrapping these pictures. I really wanted to include them in DS's book, because this was his first time bowling and he LOVED it (he has done little else since, lol, we play imaginary bowling, bowling with his Silly 6 Pins game, human bowling, bowling on the computer, etc. constantly!). But the pictures were pretty blah, and I had no idea what to do with them. I think this worked perfectly! I love how it came out!!!
This was my first VC challenge (or any challenge on this board, actually!). I had such a good time doing it! :)
ETA: The lighting was bad so I had to use the flash...the green letters show up better in person.
Katie, that is perfect! I just thought that building was perfect for a LO, and you did it great justice. Have a great time with the VC and I hope you join more challenges.
I'm so excited about this challenge and am working on a layout for it first thing. I've already been inspired by two pics for it!!
Stephanie and Katie...great job ladies!!
ok, here's mine for the Building/Landscape Inspiration challenge. That is my favorite kind of inspiration of all. I find more ideas from nature and architecture than even online galleries or magazines. I took quite a few photos and combined them into this:
"Be yourself, there is no one better qualified"
Photo #40 had the gingham and I thought I'd love to give that a try in a boyish layout, instead of just for babies. (my normal thoughts on gingham)
Photo #47 started this whole idea for me. The grey sky gradually turning to peach colors made me print my photos in b&w, almost sepia and color.
Photo #15 had that beautiful yellow. I almost never scrap using yellow, so knew I wanted to try that too.
So thank you for all the inspo ladies! I know I'll be referring back to these gorgeous pics many times.
