Day 26 AEDM – Hittin’ Some Bumps


Well, just got started on the biggest layout for the whole Yellowstone vacation – our trek on the rim of the “Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.”

I took SOOOOOOO many photos, and the vast majority are vertical landscape shots. They are VERY hard to display in a visually appealing way. To say I’m struggling with the layouts would be an understatement. In fact, I’m downright frustrated, but I’m going to keep plugging along.

The first two pages were easy to lay out – although I haven’t done any embellishing yet.

From there it’s gotten challenging – not that I don’t appreciate a good challenge now and then – but NOT in my layouts, thank you very much.I’ve laid out these next two pages over and over and I’m just not there yet…

Normally this would be enough to get me derailed for awhile…Thank goodness for AEDM – it’s giving me the incentive to keep going. Hmmmmm, there IS an art journal in there I could switch over to!

Nah, I’ll take a break to do some journaling, and hope that some inspiration kicks in!

GRATITUDE:

Today I’m thinking about how wonderful having the new hot tub is. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. The heat and jets are great for my back, but more than that it is giving Mr. Tattered and I some special time together every evening. And THAT is really something to be grateful for!

  1. I really like the small round photos you added for interest about the falls. I think these pages look great, but I guess I don’t quite understand what the problem is. I’d be thrilled if these were MY pages/layouts!!

    • Okay, I confess…when it comes to my layouts I may be just the teeniest bit anal! It’s not that they are awful…they just aren’t very interesting. But I’ll get it – or at least I always have up to this point and there is no reason to think I won’t be able to do it again!

  2. Not interesting? They look pretty interesting to me. I like the map in the first one which added interest beside only photos. And I agree with Elizabeth that the circles also added interest. I like them.
