I wanted a certain effect and did not achieve it.
I read on an extremely talented scrappers blog that if she is really not happy with a layout she discards it .... not me
Well even if I am not altogether happy I still have the pictures and the memory to look at . In this layout, I did manage to tell the story of Karens paragliding adventure.
The directions from the coach to the "take off" area were to turn right at the Caltex garage on the Wilderness road which we duly did, however none of the other landmarks he mentioned appeared . A few kms later , a few moans and groans , a phone call to him and we discovered there were TWO Caltex garages so... a detour and we were on our way to the Map of Africa which is an elevated area overlooking the stunning Wilderness beach area.
So looking at the layout I have the route marker , service station, detour sign and then the one way trip from the top of the hill to the beach for Karen.
I am entering ( at the eleventh hour ) in the Scrap Around the World challenge and from the Mood board I have used the cracks (my paper) , the glasses (Karens in the first photo)and have stamped the circles to match those in the bottom right corner as well .
I also think if you are paragliding it is a case of dont overthink ...just let go.
So hope you like it !
