Legging It!!!!

Post by Lorraine on Sun 12 Oct 2008 - 21:28

I reckon I should have put this in the 'out of your comfort zone' thread, 'cause this LO has given me so many probs and I reckon I know why. I never use cardstock as a background. I'm not 'comfortable' with it Very Happy so I always work straight on paper. But the colour of the card matched her hat lovely (the letters aren't as dark irl either). They were painted chipboard, stamped with white Stazon and DG'd.

Anyway, this was Mia on Friday. We were playing outside and she legged it down the road. I just thought her little arms and legs going was so cute. Still not much liking this LO though. Crying or Very sad

Those letters are really something special, put it away and look again in the morning. Maybe you'll see what we see, it's great.
I can't see how you'd improve on it.
My personal (that's it, personal) preference is for a more defined edge, so I might ink the turquoise edge with pink, but only if the pink is the same as the pink paper you have used. I know lots of people don't like that though as it's messy looking, and of course it will look better to you IRL anyway.
I am so impressed with those letters though, it's lovely, the little matted photo's, everything.
Added to favourites, so there! Razz

Well, I think it's a lovely LO. You are far too critical of yourself Lorraine.

Well its not your usual style, but its still a great layout and also good the way you've used so many photos which add to the whole feeling of movement.

she looks a cutie and I love that coat.

as usual i love the lettering.

Thanks, girls. Mr Green Maybe it's not so bad after all then. Very Happy

As for that wheelie bin....Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. I was going to clone it out and forgot so then I was going to cover it with something, but it didn't look right, so there it stayed. lol! I don't like it either.

I bought her the coat, Maria...and the trousers. Tee Hee

Oh Lorraine that's a simply super layout and I especially like the lettering too. Given me an idea for some letters I am proposing to do on a challenge for Southend Scrappers ... may I scraplift them?

'Course you can, Patty. I doubt it's an original idea, in fact, I'm sure it's not. Mr Green
