My first...

12x12!

See if you can spot the difference

After I had taken the first photo i decided to take some of it apart as there was something missing. The first photo is better but the page looks better now. Still not perfect though - any ideas what I could have done better? Maybe the GOT should have been in a deeper colour. Here is what the writing says. All because Emrys will not pose for photos.

I'm doing a second 12 x 12 page but that is going horribly wrong too.

This one is 8by8 and I think I can manage that better.
Can't remember what I wrote but it is something about the tree being magical. All Blitzen papers, QVC chipboard "C" (surprised to receive it as I had forgotten about my waitlist request) and some Jo Sonja bling stuff painted over everything

You've got me.. I can't find the difference.. what is it..
Emrys page is brilliant... love the arrows.. might have to pinch that idea of you Lythan.
Oh I knew this photo of Carys would make a lovely LO.. but this is sooo lovely.. Well done on your first 12x12

Nope - I can't see it either. I don't see anything wrong with the layout either - I sometimes have trouble with disappearing letters as well - I sometimes shadow them in a darker colour and that makes them a bit more solid or the other thing is to make sure they are ofset from other lines - so the T centre point is slightly offset to the photo IYSWIM. NOT that I am an expert by ANY stretch of the imagination xxx

Lythan, that's a lovely layout-I've already said what I think of the pic! The colours you've used work so well with it too

Happy New Year! xx
