To try and "get back in the groove" I had put the washi tape around the borders and printed out three photos and cropped them - and there I got stuck! The placement of things has always been my biggest issue and so it remains, especially as I am out of practise.
Once I saw the sketch, things gradually fell into place with the acquisition of a few new supplies and so this layout was created!
After struggling for sometime, I really like it now. The main technique was to "spray" paint onto the page with a mini mister, and create a faux Flair badge using a stamp, punching a circle with my circle punch, and covering it with Glossy Accents. A bit more detail, without the bulkiness.
