I agree that it's a beautiful LO. The colors are so pretty, but if a colored photo were used, it seems like it would be a bit lost. Like most have said...some LOs beg for color, while others seem better with BW or sepia.

Does anyone have examples of other colorized photos used on pages...maybe blue-tints for underwater or green for nature...or brown for kids and their mud :>) ? Sounds like another fun technique to play around with~Judy

I don't have one like that Judy but funny you should mention it. My 6 year old niece had me take silly photos of her in the tub last time she was here and then she stood over my shoulder and told me exactly how to edit them She wanted them all blue like she was under the water. Funny, she knew exactly what she wanted to go with her whale stickers and fish embellishments. Can't wait to see what she comes up with.

I have been playing around with black and white photos with a color focal point lately. This is my latest. I really love focal coloring.

Lisa that is beautiful!

I have a couple that I'm using in my wedding album where the roses are the only color. Roses for my bouquet, my husband's flower, and the cake had roses on it too. I also did a few where it's all black and white except the eyes, or one small element of the photo. I LOVE that look. Sooo pretty!

I hated the banner trend when it started. I thought lots of people were "ruining" their LOs with those ridiculous banners.

The banner makes an appearance on a good majority of my LOs and cards these days.

Love the kitchenaid mixer LO! With as much money as people spend on those things, you want to remember it

I wasn't too excited about banners at first either but they make their way on to quite a few of my layouts.

I love black and white photos, and sepia. Besides the nostalgic feel, black and white photos force me to focus more on the subject and less on any distractions. Also, if you use a black and white photo on a layout with lots of color, it makes the photo stand out a lot more.

Lisa, that lo is gorgeous!

*raises hand* with the banners. I didn't like them at first, but now I love them. There are other trends that I have had the same relationship with, too. I can't even think of which ones they are now!

I have always liked the banners. Not sure which trend I haven't liked, I liked them all! - flowers, butterflies, owls, trees, fences, circles, steampunk, buttons, brackets, brads, glitter, paint, mists, tearing, distressing, doodling, dolies, ribbone and fibers, and well y'all help me here. What other trends can we remember?

Here is the first banner I made, at least I think it was the first.

I too did not like banners much when I first saw them, my mind did not wrap around it, but now, I use them a lot! Just goes to show you can't count anything out.

I did a layout recently with a b&w pic because it is grainy and I wanted it to be bigger:

Banners:

ALSO a b&w pic. I use b&w a lot.
