So... I printed the photos I would like to turn into my first couple of pages, I looked on internet for layouts, consulted the colour wheel... and haven't actually created anything!
i feel a bit overwhelmed with all the beautiful layouts in books and on websites, paired wth quite tasteless examples of others... I want it to be perfect, I don't want not to like it when it's finished
There are so many ways to do things... So many pretty paper to choose from - I am afraid that it will have too much / too little pattern and variety of papers.. and what to do about all those beautiful letters, rub-ons, and stuff that I even don't know how to use
The short of it is - I keep buying books in a hope to find one picture that I can copy one-to-one but then, in the next moment, I don't want to copy I feel inspired to do "my thing" that I have in my head
So i created a mock up in word, with colors I would choose, with journaling and picture put all together - and I don't' like it ... it doesn't look pretty... it looks ok... and I wanted a masterpiece...
I've uploaded the layout into my gallery - please have a look - maybe you can help me?
What I don't like about it: not sure about colours, but what I really don't like is that it's so static and square (but - I don'thave many tools to do much more then cut some basic shapes and curvy borders)
what I like - my journaling bit, but I actually don't know how to implement it in the real live...
