Only I didn't have any more of the paper that I had reserved for this photo and so I gritted my teeth and kept going.
And the result? Not the best layout ever but it has some things I like about it and is another memory put down on paper.
It isn't helped by the fact that the paper has warped slightly! Or that the photo was taken on an overcast day.
Anyway I laid my papers out on an off centred grid. I knew i wanted to echo the colours in the photo but the other way up. When the first two papers were down I decided to add some colour with a mask and the mist. I of course am a little cack handed with mist and misted where I did not want mist to be (I always forget this and don't cover said areas up). I added a few more dots of mist.
Then I got ambitious and whipped out the texture paste. Florence is full of old plasterwork so why not add that idea to the page. I think the problem came with 1: the mask having a lot of small dots and 2: me not finding the plastic card thingy I should have used with the texture paste and using my finger to spread it around instead. Which meant it was not even and some paste got under the mask.
Just about saved then.
"What this layout needs is a little more definition with a Sharpie pen" I said to myself
Well, mostly it went ok. I am a dab hand at drawing long lines with a marker. But every now and then, as I know, a hand will wobble and a line will go where it should not.
At least once.
To cover my black marker wobbles I used a row of sequins all along the border strip.
Now that bit I like!
I'd love to see how you move out of your comfort zone with your Quirky kits!
