I've been playing with some of the pictures I took in Paris. There are SO many of them.. Some of them are "logical"; people pictures, obvious buildings, obvious reasons. A lot of them aren't so obvious... I have been into the small details lately; the moss on crypts, shadows, patterns, etc.. At 4am this morning I thought it would be awesome to take some of those small detail pictures and make a layout of the trivialities of Paris. I still think it would make a great layout. But I got hung up on another layout.
I really struggled with the colors of this layout. Getting things to stand out on those backgrounds really altered the layout from it's initial plan. I like the end result. It's nothing like my vision. And that is one of the many beauties of scrapbooking, my friends. You never really know what the final layout will look like.
My Silhouette Cameo has had a good workout lately. I have always been a big fan of Ali Edwards' words and now I have a way of using them without "scarring" my pictures. I create hybrid pages but I like my pictures "as is", I compose them to be the way they are, not with "stuff" on them.
Love these little Polaroid frames! They are everywhere and this is nothing unique. They make me happy. They will look utterly amazing with the Childhood Memories line by Imaginisice!
Cameras, cameras everywhere! I had bought this paper with the intention of using it for a picture of me with my camera in Paris. And how I was happy with this trips' pictures thus making it worth lugging the "big Momma" around. And how I was doubly rewarded as I was able to "replace" the pictures that got lost the first trip (when the mickey mouse camera WIPED OUT every last picture I took - that's what happens when you take all your pictures on one large card and the camera meets snow...). Clearly, I found another purpose!
