The Art of Knowing when to Finish!

I've been playing around with this LO for weeks!  It started with a pile of scraps on my desk which I liked together and which fitted with the photo, which has also been on my to do pile for ages.  I played around with a Shimelle sketch but couldn't get it to come together, I had another go at the crop with similar results, then finally had another go and came up with this.



I finally stuck it down and added title and embellishment but I can't help feeling that there is still something missing. It feels 'bare' in some way. I am therefore going to leave it in my work in progress pile and see if inspiration strikes!  If it's still there in a few weeks it can go in the album.

Great papers, and I must admit I like the layout & it looks finished to me :)

mmmm... I think I would put a borderof some sort round the edge of the Kraft, either on top or underneath, if you can cut some off each edge. I do like it tho' and think the colours are super. Karen

Looks good to me, I'd probably just doodle a border around the edge of the Kraft, that's what I do when I don't think something looks finished.

I think it looks great but maybe a boarder would be nice.

I love this layout exactly as it is!

I like it. As others have said, perhaps a doodled border might just tie things up nicely?
