hmm...









This is a layout about Chloe and my interpretation about what she is thinking. Ryan was actually playing with her and he had put Chloe's bolster on her head. She is having so much fun with Ryan until I take my camera out. When she saw my camera, her expression suddenly turn from happy and cheerful to this. I just have to capture this moment.
After looking at this photograph, I just can't stop wondering what is in her mind at that moment. With that I've titled this layout "hmm..." and I've journaled about what I've guessed.
The inspiration for this layout actually came to me when I was browsing my own gallery and thought that I've done quite a number of dark coloured layouts and would liked to have a change. Therefore, I've challenged myself to create a light coloured earth tones layout. In the process, I've tried very hard to keep the light colours in the elements and the papers that I've used.
I've created my own background paper in this layout. (Refer to "Using Cut-Outs to create your Background Paper" in my tips and tricks section)
I've also stamped and inked on the daisy in this layout. (Refer to "Stamping on Flowers" in my tips and tricks section)
I've used mulberry paper to create the big circle in the layout. This is to add some textures to it.
I've also enhanced the flourishes lace in the layout. (Refer to "Stamp and Enhance your Laces" in my tips and tricks section.)
This layout is something that is fresh from the styles that I'm used to and I hope that it will also be inspiring to you.

Hi Allison,

It's actually a cheap fabric flower that I've bought and it does come with the flower. It's actually some artificial moss. That's one pro of using non sb flowers. Thanks for asking!
