Kim Watson has a very fun and whimsical style. I scraplifted her because her layout compositions are always unique and nothing that I could think of myself. I thought the layout Happy Day in particular would be a fun project to emulate because it is quintessentially Kim, absolutely adorable, and again, nothing I could come up by myself.
Happy Day by Kim Watson
The thing about scraplifting that I find most challenging is photograph matching, both in size and in number. Ultimately I almost always go with my photos the way they are and re-configure the page accordingly. I think the results of such adjustments may make the layout look significantly different from the original and I am perfectly happy with that.
I incorporated many of the elements Kim used in her layout, such as tiny little borders, several rectangles of patterned papers. I even broke out a couple of bottles of mists but I did stop short of busting out the sewing machine! There are chipboard pieces, buttons, and various sticker arrows to match her stars. It was a thoroughly enjoyable process in scraplifting Kim. My layout, ultimately, reflects me and my traditional and simple style.
Thank you so much for visiting and thank you Kim for your awesome inspiration!
