Radiance Layout

Hi Everyone! I decided to create a layout rather than making a card today. I have a tendency to neglect creating a scrapbook layout because well, I'm a little layout challenged! LOL! It takes me a little longer to come up with a layout that I like. A lot of times, I don't have materials that match and I'm not good with the "hodge-podge" look. I have this problem with wanting to have everything sort of match which isn't quite necessary with scrapbooking. I need to get over that hump.

Anyway. . .just a few details about my layout. It's a photo of my daughter when she was about 4 years old. She has a radiance about her . . .you know, the saying "she lights up the room when she walks in". . .well, she has that aura about her. I wanted to create a layout about her "radiance".

I didn't do any special techniques with this layout. I did distress the paper and rubbed a little distressing ink to give it a shabby chic look. Other than that, not much else.

Layout details:

Papers: K&Co, SU Bordering blue, Regal Rose,
Accessories: Prima, Inc., SU Photo corner punch, Tim Holtz distressing ink, Heidi Swapp distressing tool, Craft Robo, Colorbok Memory Boutique, Joann Brad

This layout is beautiful just like your daughter. I know what you mean about creating layouts for scrapbooks. I think this is why I took to stamping better, you only have to do 1 card rather than a 2 page spread. The thinking process is much more intence for scrapping I think.
