Sometimes when I am scrapping, I feel a lot like Goldilocks, from Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
I’ll try one thing on a page, and it seems like it’s “not enough.”
I’ll try something else, and it feels like it’s “too much.”
But after I fiddle around with things and try something new, I usually get to my Goldilocks moment when I can say,
“This is JUUUUUSTTT right!”
I was working on this layout (using May Flowers from the March Digi Files), and I couldn’t get my layout to look like I wanted. I knew I was going for simple, but I was finished, I couldn’t help but think it was too simple.
So then, I decided I would add a patterned paper. I did that and then I was positive it was too much.
After thinking for a bit, I decided to extract the flowers from one of the patterned papers. Then, I put it on my page and clipped a white layer to it. Then, I adjusted the opacity until I was happy and then voila!
Don’t be afraid to keep playing your pages until you find your Goldilocks moment!
