Hello Friend

I am working my way through the projects I created at last year’s Victoria Marie scrapbook retreat. I thought I had posted this one ages ago, but I checked, and nope. So it’s up now.

Hello Friend

I definitely have a lot to say about this layout.

  • I used a magazine ad as inspiration for this page.
  • I ended up being glad I hadn’t posted this layout before. I came across it a little while ago and just didn’t feel like it was complete. So I added some embellishments: flair, diecuts, and a tag. I feel better about it now.
  • Having said that, not every layout can be perfect. With some, you just have to tell yourself it’s finished and move on. That’s what I ultimately did here. I love the photo, color scheme, and chipboard, but I don’t feel like there is an obvious place for journaling. Not every page needs journaling, but I notice the absence on this particular layout. Also, there is too much—or maybe not enough?—white space. I can’t quite put my finger on why; it just feels like there is something off about this page. But I don’t care. I’m gonna put it in an album and go to the next one.

Both stages of the process are shown here. Check it out below.

That’s it for now. Thanks for watching and reading. Until next time. 🙂
