Days and weeks and months go by and my album sits open next to my desk, but nothing good comes of it. The pages are boring, the photos the same as always. Problems without solutions.
Even though I try to skip ahead and ignore pages that aren't working, somehow, it never works. This page from the middle of May was ruining my my entire second album.
I needed a full size image on the left—no rearranging to solve the problem this time. But this one was sucking all the energy from the photos on the right. I didn't have any other photos to use there and a patterned paper wasn't going to work. I didn't want to ditch the spread altogether. It sucked. I tried to just pretend it wasn't there.
Isn't that better? Making the photo monochromatic makes it so much more interesting. The laser cut watercolor shape Tina designed for Studio Calico's Skeeball add-on is the icing on the cake.
