I’m stuck. I put together a layout using this sketch from the Sketches in Thyme blog. It is a lovely sketch. Perhaps I’m struggling because I removed the embellishment that is supposed to run along the right side of the photos. There just weren’t any nifty scrolly curly embellishments in my stash. (And really, I never copy a sketch exactly.) I just know it is missing something. A third color maybe? Something to make it less boxy?
I used that lovely We R Memory Keepers paper in the background as my starting point. I love the teal to lime ombre. Then I searched through my scraps and found the large teal polka dot paper. It was a perfect match! As I was digging, I also found that little scrap of a floral. It was teal and olive, but I felt it was close enough to use. (In other words, I wanted it out of my stash!) I’m very happy with the papers. Still, something is not quite right.
So my scrappy friends, help me out. What is it that this page needs? How do I take it from drab to magical? I’ve spent days looking at it, now it’s your turn. I just know you will see something that I don’t. Help!
