Mini Me 2013 digi layout

I've always wanted to make my own "arrangement" of flowers on a page, but I've never had the inspiration or skills to do it. Lately, I've been looking at wedding flower magazines to try and get a feel for how it all works, and I think this is helping.

I've had lots of help lately at finding new places to compete with digi layouts, and many quite challenging with themes or challenges that I'm just not used to. So I'm giving it a go.

This page is for ARTastic's July 2013 comp. This is the challenge pic (Challenge : Black and white and predominately one other colour)

And this is my layout (black, white and pink!):

2013 Mini Me - ARTtastic July 2013

The camellias are photos of mine - Camellia japonica Otome from my Grandmother's garden (my nan who passed away in february). These are all pictures of me from early childhood to about fourteen or fifteen. I was born with dark brown hair, was a little blondie for a bit between 2-4, light brown the rest of the time until I was sixteen and then whack - it went back to dark brown again!

  1. Hi Kylie. Thank you for your positive comment on my post. Love your photo montage.. what a clever idea to show many facets of you. The camelias are beautiful and must be a treasured memory. Cheers, Di

  2. Hi Kylie. Love your flower cluster. Very clever. The soft pink underneath really makes it stand out against the black. I'd love to do a photo montage like yours but am not clever enough yet. Great layout. Cheers, Chris.

  3. Totally delightful page Kylie. I very much like the background you have used - it makes your flower cluster really pop off the page and your "self" montage is a very clever idea. Thank you so much for joining us on ARTastic this month.

  4. This looks amazing. The flower spray you have created is gorgeous....very clever.

  5. This is amazing! Love how you have created the light effect on the LO. A realy great story to tell using all these photos of you at different age. Love your choise of colour withe the b&w too. Thank you for joining us over at ARTastic this month :)
