I always adore the layouts done by DSP Member Scrapping4him and this one is absolutely no exception - gorgeous photo - gorgeous composition - simply gorgeous all over. I love also how she journalled between the chair legs - and beautiful journalling it is too
Here are Mandy's notes on this layout
LOL - the hormones are a little out of whack so pardon the sapiness of this LO.
1) I clipped my photo to the layer mask and then set it to B/W
2) I set several elements to a luminosity blend mode to maintain a more monochromatic look to my page
3) I set the vellum_clock to a soft light blend mode and duplicated it
kit: Dark Moods Value Collection by Lauren Bavin
layer mask: MaskErades Quick Bits by Christine Gundersen
fonts: CK Bella -- Century Gothic
my journaling to Megan reads:
A moment captured that is hard to put into words the feelings that rush over me when I gaze upon the love in your eyes. What in me do you love? Will I always be the person you seek out for comfort when sadness comes your way? When will that day come when you lose this look of unadulterated love? I know not the answers to these questions but I do know that I will always cherish these moments.
