Unfinished

Post by thriftycrafter on Tue 7 Apr 2009 - 15:34

Have a look and give me your opinion please. I am so pleased with this for BIL's wedding album, it's the 2nd one I won't want to part with, I can put the pages either way round and they allow for portrait or landscape pics. The background is actually a greenish beige/cream, I guess there's a posher description, pale sage or something LOL, the central panel is cream.

What I want to know is what colour bows, cream wasn't working, I like the black, but the theme is pale pink. I'd quite like to try black organza but I don't think I have time to get any before Friday, and it might be a little too light anyway.

Where do the frames look best, DH is of limited artistic ability so his advice is not always useful.
All opinions valued, Ta.

Pics landscape I think as you have bottom left, but would put the frame on the patterned border next to picture (as top left).
Colour, have you tried green so go with background paper? The pink looks a bit 'why that', when everything else cream/green/black to me IFYKWIM

well black would look stunning and I like the first (top) set miles more than the lower ones. I would maybe move the little frame in the first pic... its a bit lost in the busy band.

Well I'd defo go for green as I think the pink looks like an afterthought. Black is lovely too though. Yes, landscape for the frames too.

I'm with Di, I like the first bottom one the best, top one looks a bit empty, can't see the other two very well, just half of each so don't know what is on the other side. and black or dark green bow.

No contest for me, Karelyn.

The bottom left exactly as it is. Black bows and all. Mr Green

Bottom left LO for me, agree on dark green for the bows once you have added the pictures if you feel it needs pink then a couple of the pink pearls would look good just together on the edge of the page

Thanks all, in the end the frames never made it on to the LO's at all due to lack of time, or probably in reality, lack of reality on my part.
Pics of all the lo's in next few days I hope.
