Hi Everybody. . . this is my second layout for this year! I'm rather proud of this one because I actually came up with my own layout. Does the page look too simple? It looked fine in person but when I look at the picture, it looks sort of "plain". I don't know. . .I guess I'm accustomed to seeing all those layouts with lots of embellishments, sentiments, words, and stuff. Should I add like a little saying or verse somewhere or perhaps more stickers? Your honest opinion is appreciated.
Anyway. . .this picture is of my daughter when she was 5 years old. This picture was taken during Christmas and I took it at a courtyard where I worked. Considering I'm an amateur photographer and it was taken with a 35mm not a digital. I think the picture came out really well.
I scanned the photo and enlarged it on my computer. I then changed the color of the photo to "sepia". I wanted to create a "vintage" or "softer" look to the layout. This is one my favorite pictures of my daugther. I like a lot of pictures but I think this one looks natural. . .she's posing but not really posing. . .if you know what I mean.
