Looking back

I’ve done plenty of digiart and photo enhancing recently but can’t remember when I last created a layout. So I took the challenge on Simple Aussie Girls to create a layout about me.  I do create lots of layouts about me but am happy to add another.  This one records my movement around the world and back over the last three decades.

Writing on photos – digitally and with pens – is rather a go to habit at the moment. 

I’d happily print out just the image with the writing (after moving the date onto the image).  I created this part first and then thought about putting it onto a more traditional layout size.  I actually did two versions (one of the many possibilities I love about digi scrapping). Do you have a preference between the versions?

thanks for joining in...not sure which I like best actually, perhaps the second one, I do like a bit of white space!

I like both too, but really I am drawn to the second one - it's fantastic! Thanks for joining in, Miss Diane will give you a gold star and you will go straight to the top of the class!

I'm drawn to the second one too - it leads the eye in so nicely

First, I love the photo of you and the journaling is awesome. A great way to document your path in this life.

Secondly, I think I like the second one better...just feels better with a little more space.

I love the way the shadows play on your face in both. Like the chronology of your journaling, but then I like to make lists, too.

Love the second one - that swirl is lovely and adds a playfulness to the page. The white space also adds to it - strange that empty space can add something isn't it!

Thanks for joining in. And yes straight to the top of the class!! I think I am leaning towards the second one as well.
