Well, I took the bull by the horns last night. I pulled together some of the papers & cardstock that i thought worked together and started the layout.
I used this weekly sketch by Shimelle to produce this layout. I'm normally a lot more clean & simple in my layouts, but i love the cluttered/embellished look that some layouts have. It's just that i normally need a bit of a push in the right direction to achieve that look for one of my layouts.
There is a bit of reflection on the photo because the sun is shining through the window at the moment, but you get the general idea.
This was the photo that i wanted to do justice, I'm relatively happy with the layout and I'm even happier that it is actually going to stay in one of my very own albums (as opposed to being snaffled by mum). Most of the paper that i finally used all came out of my offcuts box, apart from the strip of flying storks. The main sheet, I think is about 5 years old, but it reminded me of the swirls on the blue blanket that Thomas is sleeping in.
Hope everyone is having a stressfree saturday.
