Here is my take on the sketch:
My neighbour has a pond with koi fish. Luckily he has lots, and they breed naturally so quickly that he need to sell 50-60 each summer. If not, I think my cat Ponky would have been in big trouble if he discovered this:
|Background paper: WRMK. Other patterned paper: Basic Grey. Hanging wood sign: Kaiser Kraft. Alpha: AC. Woode word, fabric badge & wood camera: Freckled Fawn. Tag, button & resin fish: unknown|
I streched the design a bit to fit landscape oriented photos, and I used the same one twice. Who says you can't *lol*?
Here is a trick for you when using busy background papers: go with a completely different color in the title - it takes the focus away from the busy paper and lead your eyes to the photos. Imagine the tiltle in brown - your eyes would immidiately be drawn to the busy, right hand side.
Please link up your takes to the side bar at the The Studio Challenges blog, we would love to see what you do with this lovely sketch, you have until June 8th to enter!
