This month's sketch at the UmWow Studio blog is another great one and I was eager to do something with it, but when I was almost done my layout, disaster struck. A huge blob of white pain on the top left corner of my page. Luckily it missed the photo. I tried so hard to make it work. I grabbed a toothpick and dragged the paint around in what was supposed to look like overlapping circles. That wasn't working so I dragged it around some more, hoping for a blustery leaf feeling. That didn't quite work either. So I walked away in hopes that I would love it the next day; that didn't work either.
But then today, a special something arrived at my door.
The prize I won from the Lawn Fawn blog. Swoon! I knew I had to do something with that grey heart paper and then I remembered this disaster:
Sorry for the bad cell phone picture. I loved this layout at first. And then I didn't love how the confetti on the left side was looking. And I really didn't love the spilled paint and the attempts to work with it. So I pulled up the main part that I still loved (which luckily all came off in one piece). And now I am in love again.
