Good morning, peas, this is Margie Scherschligt here. www.twopeasinabucket.com/cg_vend_seeds.asp
GG Amy Grendell's blog post yesterday with her thoughts about the latest theme layouts in the garden got me thinking. It was so fun to read about all the details she noticed that really made those layouts seem signature to that specific designer. I wanted to jump off that topic and talk about how I have this thought over and over while looking at layouts in the gallery and the garden. If only I could be a fly on the wall watching the creation of that layout.
Looking over Kelli Crowe's shoulder I would just love to know where she begins. I have this feeling that she has a visual in her mind that looks just like her end product. I love how all the little doo dads look like she just dropped them on the page, and they found their way to their perfect position. I look at Kelli's pages and think, hmm...is it moving? There is so much motion and energy in her creations.
Veronica Ponce: Ok, I just want to look over her shoulder as she demonstrates the way layers, blends, and layer modes work on her pages. I bet she would make a gorgeously detailed layout like the one here look so easy to create. Sure watching tutorials would be a big help to me, a person who wishes to create digital pages but really doesn't think she could, BUT pulling up beside Veronica IRL sounds like so much more fun to me.
The details on Joy Bohon's layout. I just want to watch as she adds that property of Ollie sticker with the little guy and then leaves all the beautiful white space above. Was that her last finishing touch, do you think? It's just the icing on the cake, I tell you. Love it.
The last layout I leave you with is this layout by Stacey Sattler. I have actually scrapped IRL with Stacey in her gorgeous scraproom. Think art teacher meets pottery barn. It's beautiful. The thing I love about Stacey's layouts is that she isn't afraid to use more feminine papers on her boy layouts and she is a master at mixing patterns. Look at the pattern strips on this layout about her son, Riley. Fab combination as usual!
So tell us or show us layouts in the 2peas gallery or garden that you wish you could have watched being created because of those AMAZING FINISHING TOUCHES whether detailed or subtle.
