I actually braved it and took the opportunity to Jack Christi’s layout. It was very daunting for me as I love how Christi scraps and how there is so much full on richness to it. My attempts at something similar in the past have all tended to look like the rubbish heap about to be thrown out!
But thanks to a kit piece – the Hambly transparency, I got brave and thought I’d give it a go. I’ve probably ended up being more literal than I intended as I decided to use lots of patterns and stitching – elements of Christi’s work that I adore! That and the fact I seemed to have the exact same kind of photo, I decided it was much easier to be closer to the original than to re-invent the wheel completely. 😉
If you haven’t already seen some of the examples, go take a look…. I love how there are different interpretations on the theme.
Now I’ve had my first go, I’m looking forward to seeing the next one! 🙂
