Only three more days to enter my giveaway!!
This is my fourth layout revealed on my blog for C’est Magnifique February Kit:
“Royal Tea Party”
These pictures were taken this past summer by the lake as I was helping my daughter catch minnows with a net.
This was the first layout I designed after my winter holidays. I had so many ideas in my head but I guess I was a little rusty after such a long break. It took me so many hours to design it and no matter what I did I wasn’t happy with the final outcome. I got so frustrated with it that I took the whole layout apart and re-built it. I originally had it on a dark blue background and I couldn’t figure out what wasn’t working for me. I finally lifted the whole layout out and transferred it to the light beige background and then I relaxed.
I really think its important for designers to share their good and bad experiences. Showing how it can be so frustrating sometimes to find the right “look” for your project, the one that makes you happy. However when you finally do, it is so rewarding.
