CHALLENGE INSM12#7 at Lets Scrap:
In honor of National Scrapbook Day (which falls on 5/5 this year), this challenge is to use Five Pictures and Five Patterned Papers on a two-page layout. And, coincidentally, you have five days to complete the challenge! There are no techniques to learn, no tools to buy, nothing hard to try or do!
For this challenge, I chose the Sketch 1-25-12.
These photos of my daughter's feet were taken at a beach in Port Dickson. We were on our way back to Melaka when hubby decided to stop by Port Dickson. After browsing the night market, we went to the beach. I did tell Zahra' that she's not to go into the waters at all. The sun was still shining at the time and Zahra' decided to go barefoot on the sands instead. I gave her my permission and also reminded her to be extra careful.
I had these Kaiser papers in my collection for more than a year. I didn't use them mainly because of the busy pattern and to me the colours are a bit too loud. For this challenge, I feel these papers are perfect because of the image of the sun, bright and cheery colours (which complements the day the event took place) and the photos are not too loud. I did a lot of toning down for this layout so that the photos will show. I decided to keep the embellishments to a minimum.
