Yippee ! I did a bit of destashing with this layout of mine. I found all these old Making Memories die cuts in my stash and I must say they have been lying there for the longest time. They practically begged to be scrapped. I dug into my paper stash and this is the product of today's scrapping adventure.
Jessy took this photo of Clarissa when she was making pesto aubergine tarts. Of late Clarissa has been very inspired to cook after watching the Australian Masterchef. She made me buy her the Junior Masterchef cookbook when we were in Australia. I thought I better document her cooking journey before I forget how she started.
I wanted to do a very unstructured layout and incorporate free and easy into the layout. I somehow ended up with this layout. As usual I did not sketch out the layout and just scrapped as I felt. At hindsight I somehow regret the decision as I can see that the layout lack proportion. Sigh... I really must start thinking more about composition before I decide to attempt another layout.
I was however somewhat surprised with the amount of layering I did try in the little elements. It must be a product of stalking both Christine Middlecamp and Aida Haron's blogs :) I am never too satisfied with my layouts as I always just go with the flow even though the flow may not be right. Ah well - I always think I scrap as a hobby and if I make a mistake - so be it. Although it seems that I make more mistakes than producing decent layouts. Cest La Vie - welcome to the world of Michelle's scrapbooking - where there imperfections abound and I love it as I am not perfect either. :) Have a great day everyone.
