That time

10 November 2012

of year when the weather is grey, wet and not exactly nice. On the other hand it is also a period of preparation. Preparing Damien, Noé and Robin birthdays, getting ready for Saint Nicolas and above all Christmas is just around the corner too. All those things brighten those gloomy days. I decided to play along with the Sunday Sketch at Studio Calico and add some colour to my life. I challenged myself to use things I had at hand's reach! I used my gelatos to create a "sunburst" and worked from that. Now I must say I am not pleased with this layout as I messed up a few things. 
  1. See the brad, I added that to hide some smudged ink.
  2. I used the wrong glue to glue the vellum hearts down and now it shows.
  3. Near the BE GOOD rub on, I wanted to stamp a small sentiment, ... well that didn't work out as planned.
  4. The stamped image JUSTE L'ESSENTIEL is not straight.
It is not as planned but I have learnt to except that I will not be happy with every layout I make and that is okay but it keeps pushing me to create and try new techniques. Everyone in the family likes it as it is colourful and I also managed to use up lots of scraps and cameo die cuts I had lying around.

Mensen zijn altijd kritisch naar hun eigen werk, maar ik vind dit een mooie layout.. De 'rays' in felle kleuren vind ik vooral mooi:-)

À l'heure qu'il est , il pleut des cordes chez moi et ta page est un véritable rayon de soleil !

Oui, parfois, il y certains détails qui ne vont pas comme on voudrait... Mais il faut faire avec...

I didn't notice ANY of those "mistakes" I think that this layout is AMAZING just the way it is. Those little misadventures add to the WONDER of the creativeness of the page--basically I am pinning it for some AWESOME inspiration! YOU are AWESOME!!

Your layouts are always so awesome and inspiring. However, you're right, sometimes they just don't go as planned, but it's great to experiment and accept it. It's so fabulous that you're so honest and real. Though if you hadn't mentioned it, probably no-one would have noticed those little slip-ups. Thanks for sharing though! Still very inspiring! Love the sunburst and all the interesting layers.

Je ziet zelf altijd de dingen die niet helemaal gaan zoals gepland. Vergeet niet dat je er zelf met je neus bovenop zit en elk detail ziet. Ik vind je layout echt supergaaf, mooi hoe je de gelato's hebt gebruikt. En ik had je foutjes niet gezien hoor....
