On Board – a layout from Scrapbook Challenges Sketch 455
|Start:||This was for a sketch challenge. |
|Story:||Because Earl has been on my mind, I decided to keep scrapping pictures of him. Of course, he and the fellas often go fishing when he is here, but this day we headed to the water for a different reason. We decided to take him to see something that is unique to Evansville.|
|Style:||I stuck pretty close to the sketch but moved my journaling into a different spot.|
I have to tell you that the page didn’t look finished until I added the last touch – the red doodled line around the edge. I think with the movement of the background paper, your eyes float right off the page unless there was something to catch them before they go overboard. Of course, those rolling river waves kept me from making the lines perfectly straight, too.
Does anyone have any good tips for photographing gold elements on pages without them coming out so brassy? They look so much nicer in person.
