Layout Re-done

Have you ever created a scrapbook layout that just didn't seem complete or 'right'? That is how I felt about the 'Howdy' layout I posted  several weeks ago. There were elements I love and did not want to change; however, there were several that just didn't please me. I made some minor changes, and I do like the layout much better now.

Here are the two versions. What do you think?

This is the older version.

In the newer version below....
   I changed the upper corner pieces and put a decorate edge across the entire top of the layout to 'mirror' the decorated edge across the bottom. This seemed to better balance the layout.
   On the journaling box I added a larger blue mat to tie the mats together and better balance the middle of the layout.
   I added two charms to the title to give it a bit more 'character' and weight. The silver (gray) tone of the charms helped to tie in the color of the Jolee embellishment on the journaling box. I added rhinestones to the Magnolia image outfit, boots, and pink circles at the top of the layout. These rhinestones mimic the rhinestones on the Jolee.

This is the newer layout. I am pleased with the finished product.

Don't be afraid to re-do a project if you are not satisfied. Remember, it's your art....make it your own!!

Thanks for stopping by. LindaC
