Grapes: Designed for Once Upon A Sketch April 15th Challenge

I really liked this sketch and figured I could handle 2 pictures on a page without too many issues ... I'm a chicken when it comes to filling a page with photos!  I'd prefer one 5x7 over a bunch of small pics any day!!

I would have liked to pair this sketch with a color combo challenge, but the only 2 that I'm aware of are Color Combos Galore and The Color Room.  I just completed the CCG palette and the one over at TCR wouldn't work with these photos (Kev isn't a huge fan of him on a pink page!)  Does anyone know of any other challenge blogs that are centered around a color palette?  If so, send me a message, please!!!!

Ok ... back to the inspiration sketch:



Here's my take on it ... I'm pretty happy with the result ... although I don't have nearly as much negative space as the inspiration sketch does .... I'm obsessed with getting the 'layering' thing down, and I think I'm making progress ... as always, comments and honest opinions are welcomed!!

  5. Things I like... "LOVE" tag, green flower with rhinestones, overall layering and color scheme.

    Thinkgs I don't like... the title. Actually, the title is fine, but the letters seems to get lost in the page.

  6. Lisa ... kinda agree about the title ... I wish it was a brighter color and really popped! Oh well ... nothing I can do about it now, they're rub-ons ...
