I've done it digitally, as I haven't had the time to clean the cr*p off my scrap table, let alone the chance to play with card and paper (which does take me some time, I have to admit!) My intention is to print off these digital pages (constructed deliberatley so I can print the main part 8x10 and then add card and paper as necessary). Its quite liberating, doing things this way, as normally I am a slacker at printing and photos are quite "old" by the time they hit my desk.
Anyhow, here is the sketch:
And here is the finished result! It's rare that a page turns out exactly how I imagined to start off with, or exactly like a sketch or other layout that I might like. That's the creative part, isn't it?!
I also dont' normally mix black and white and colour photos (my brain can't handle it!) but this time the frog on her head didn't really stand out, but does when I left it colour and the rest of her in black and white.
I have no idea why one would place a frog on one's head, but I made her take it off, and put it in the garden in a "nice place".
Off to have a hot milo before bed...and tomorrow? I have a job of disinfecting my office floor where the cat (Sooty) kindly left for me a stinky dead rat. I had Trevor remove the body (he was overjoyed, I can tell you!) but there remains an odour...dettol here I come!
