Bad Girls Class #3 - Less is more

This is my entry for class #3 on Bad girls hosted by Miss Sri Sams -Less is more! Ouffffff I had a concept that I fine tuned all week! I was waiting for Friday... I had a hair salon appointment and wanted to go to the local mall and take photos in a photo booth!

This is less common for me to leave "white space" however I'm really please with the result! To "control my space" I had to make wise decisions in choosing my embellishments! I had so much more that I wanted to add... such as: gaffer tape, more buttons, a little tag for the date, dew drops, paper clip, die cut edge from a Sassa Frass paper, more and more layers of pattern papers.... the list goes on and on!

I tried my best to "keep it simple" and that the focus stayed on the pictures by creating the brads circle and group of perfectly selected embellishments!

I wanted an "asymmetrical layout" and to "create an 90° angle" with the papers I selected, the ribbons, photo strip and the placement of the title.

I used the same color palette throughout the layout, repeated the circle shapes (buttons, brads, stamp, stick pin, circle with the brads and pattern on the paper) to created "unity".

To "balance" the heavier right bottom corner, I added this little "topper" on the left corner.






Hope you enjoy my new haircut.... ohhhhhhh boy do I love it! I had problems scheduling my appointment with my dear Jean-Francois for about 2 months, he is getting really busy and the 4h30 hours spent there was well worth it! Thanks to Jenn at the Store for playing along even if she didn't had anymore voice to scream "in delight" when she saw me!

Have a great Sunday, here's it's major fall clean up, mix with reorganization of the scraproom and then it's create new pages with the Offbeat line for the store and my Fa la la acrylic album for my November class!

Well done Stephanie! These challenges have started to nudge you a bit out of your comfy zone, which you know I always advocate =)

Congrats on progressing to the next level. I can't want to see what next comes up!

PS I did pretty well all things considered - I'll have to screech when my throat is back to 'normal' - may that day come quickly!

hugs!
