I love this picture! I started with two-page sketch #25 and combined all the smaller photos into one breathtaking picture.
1. Instead of flags, I created sign posts to embellish this incredible two page picture of Moraine Lake (located in Banff National Park, Canada)
2. I enlarged the add-on to compliment the picture.
3. Using green floss and some white glue, I made grass to help ground the sign post.
This layout has some history. I had originally planned to submit it for two-page sketch #25 ... but I wasn't happy with the picture ... I had it printed at Walmart, and the beautiful colour of Moraine Lake was subdued, muted, the mountains grey and flat. I hated it. Moraine Lake is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been ... the picture HAD to be perfect ... so the layout stalled. And then, my husband suprised me with a new photo printer. This was the first enlargement I printed ... the difference was night and day! This picture is gorgeous. When I saw the add-on sketch, well, I knew it would work for this layout! I kept everything simple so that the picture would really pop!
