I just don't get it...

Noen ganger virker ting bare ikke. Uansett hvordan jeg strever og sliter blir det ikke riktig... Se på den flotte skissen fra Stuck?! under for eksempel. Jeg så den, likte den og satte i gang å jobbe. Og så ble alt bare kokos...

Some times things just doesn't work. It doesn't matter how much I try, work and struggle: it doesn't work. Look at this great sketch from Stuck?! for example. I saw it, liked it and started working on it. And I just couldn't make it right.






Ideen min var god. Designet var bra. Fargene og bildene matched. Og det bare rotete. Det endte med at jeg plukket hele greia fra hverandre (det var selvfølgelig limt, limt godt!), byttet bakgrunnsfarge og så ble det plutselig spiselig!

My idea was good and so was the design. The colors and pictures were matching. And it all looked messy! I ended up deassembling the whole layout (it was glued down, off course. And I hadn't been frugal on the glue...), changed the background color and the layout suddenly turned out OK!









Jeg scrapper album for barna mine. De bryr seg mest om bildene og blåser i om papirer og pynt er årets eller fjorårets. Helt ærlig: de brydde seg mer om bildet av R2D2 enn om bakgrunnsfargen skulle være kobboltsblå eller hvit...

I scrap to make albums for my kids. They care more about the photos than if the pps and embellies are this or last year's releases. Honestly - they were more interested in looking at the photo of R2D2 than deciding if to use white or cobolt blue background color...

Sometimes LOs just don't work - so frustrating! But my critics are like yours - it's the photos that matter to them too.
