Ever make a big mistake on a layout? Well, let me share my layout for the Memory Nest's Make it Monday. So, I had the sketch and I had an idea what I wanted to do. I was going to do this cool gelato background and it ended up being a big mess. So, I put to the side and tried again. I made this page you see....well kind of what you see. Originally, I put a nice wooden one and wrote all about my little guy's first month milestones. When I went to put the layout away, I realized that I had the wrong month. These were actually his second month of life photos. Whoops! I could switch out the wooden number easily, but the journaling was more tricky to fix. I had written right onto the page, so I had to cover up my old journaling with new journaling. This made the page very right side heavy. Then I had to add some more bits on the left side to help it a bit. It came out fine in the end, but I was in a bit of a panic for a while. I wasn't positive I was going to be able to fix it.
Now that the Christmas decorations are down, it is time to make some Valentine's Day decorations to put up! I have seen some in the store, but it is much more fun to make your own. So here is how I made my sweet heart wreath. First you need a hoop (the one I used had about a 7 in diameter), 7 big wooden hearts, 8 small wooden hearts, paint, glitter, ribbon, and some hot glue. I took all my hearts and painted them a solid color and then went back over them and made some patterns or outlined them. I thought they were looking a little boring so I went back and put some glitter on random ones. Then I went around and hot glued the big ones and tried to make them as evenly spaced as possible. Then I hot glued the smaller ones on top of the bigger hearts, tied some ribbon, and then hung on my door!
Love your layout and take on the sketch Saskia! Your little guy is one Beautiful Baby too! I believe "mistakes" are "just another an opportunity to embellish!" and you did a wonderful job "fixing" the layout - we would never know if you didn't share your secret - but in doing so, I am sure you have helped someone faced with a similar problem! Yes, we did add a banner in the same place on the layout - great scrappy minds think alike! :-)ReplyDelete
I absolutely LOVE what you did with the DT sketch...the stitching is a brilliant interpretation!ReplyDelete
Super page. And haven't we all had a similar mishap at some point! Well disguised though, I'd never have known.ReplyDelete
