Hey everyone, it’s Lu! I am super excited to be “revealing” our Thursday Thievery scraplift layout! This truly was a challenge for me to select, as there are literally dozens of layouts I’d like to lift! But this layout is one that I’ve remember from the first time I saw it… and it’s just stuck with me, you know? To be honest, I feel my style is one that evolves constantly, as I love to experiment. So when considering a layout to lift, I thought about “stretching” myself to try a style different from my own (whatever that may be, lol!) I chose Trish’s May 20 for this week’s inspiration.
Gosh, what’s not to love, right? But I have to tell you what caught my attention right away… it was the scrolly, doodle border that she scaled down to draw the eye into her picture. And yep, that’s what I saw right afterwards… the photo itself! I love how she did something a bit unpredictable here and showed the back of her little girl. Don’t you just love shots from unexpected angles or perspectives? It makes me wonder, “what was she looking for”? Trish didn’t way a word about the moment, other than the date, to leave you to your own imagination. And boy, do I have a vivid one…but that’s neither here nor there. Maybe it was just a very wonderful, typical moment that needed no explanation. Or perhaps it was a case of it’s what you don’t say, rather than what you do? Very intriquing, you know? I also really liked how she used the damask stamp under all those layers, to provide a central “anchor”. Then at the perimeter of the layout, she used just a whisper of a border technique, a glitter border overlay from the Sprout kit. I am just entirely inspired by this beautiful layout & am sure you all will be, too. But for a bit more inspiration, here are some layouts from some of the Shabby Artists.
And here’s my take on it
Well, that wraps it up for me today! Sure hope you’ll be inspired to lift this layout in the very near future… we’ll be looking for all the thieves in the gallery! Happy Scrappin’!
