Using a sketch


I had the photos and the theme, but wasn't happy with my own ideas for the layout until I saw this sketch by Ali Edwards in Pencillines. It is a fab sketch and I think I will use it again.

I like the final result but I am not sure about the word in acetate. It was the last thing I put, as I thought something was missing, but should have used the word "ciumes" in Portuguese as opposed to "Jealousy". Jealousy could mean "envy", which has nothing to do with what I wanted to portray about my daughter. I meant to say that she doesn't like when she feels that we are giving too much attention to somebody else instead of her.

Beautiful Elisa. I really love it. Your DD is so cute, even with a puss on her! I'd love to see the journalling.

Love it Elisa, it's fab! My own DD is very like that too....I have to be so careful when praising her friends, or she gets the notion that I like them better! :0

Fab LO, Elisa. I think it's perfect - the letters are great because they're transparent, and I think the fact that you've got the sub-title above means the word "jealous" isn't mis-interpreted at all. Great work.
