Scrapshots - Layers Layers Layers

Layers Layers Layers

Yes, I'm still on the layering mission. I bought a Scrap 365 magazine from Scrap Delight yesterday. What an amazing magazine. On the front page is a layout by Tomoko Takahashi. I have been admiring her style for a while on several web sites and blogs. She's all over the place. I was really inspired by this layout and decided to try “lifting” it by using my own colour schemes and embellishments. I reckoned by copying a layout I could get a feel for proper layering and hopefully next time be able to do it on my own. (It worked with the very first layout I ever did.)
I must say I'm very happy with the result. It doesn't have as much detail and dimension as Tomoko's layout but it is still my current favourite. At first I thought some of the colours might be too bright but in the end everything blended together very nicely.
The photo is of my brother and I on a wine farm 2 years ago. The title says it all: You will always be my baby brother. He is 11 years younger than me.
Here is Tomoko's layout on the front page of Scrap 365. Note all the liquid pearls accenting her frames and embellishments. (I ordered some last night )
Thanks for the inspiration, Tomoko!
