WOYWW #177 - Big Brother!
Well, it’s not so much ‘Big Brother’ as ‘Little Brother’ really because on my desk this morning is a LO I’m trying to construct of my oldest brother Keith when he was around a year old.
I’m working from an old template from Scrapbook Steals.com and have only just started so nothing has been stuck down yet and I’m still looking through my stash for embellishments.
As you can see, I’ve copied the photo and tried to clean it up a bit in Photoshop but it’s still not great and I think I may have lightened it up a little too must, so I’ll probably have another little play with it before I stick it down.
If it still doesn’t look right I may consider using the original.
I’m know that some people don’t agree with doing that but on the other hand, the photo will just sit on the box with lots of others that don’t often get looked at so it will be safer in the album. At least it will be ‘true vintage’ with all the creases and marks on it.
Last week I was saying that I was in the process of putting some of my other LO’s on my heritage blog but I got a bit distracted and didn’t do any in the end, so this week I really do intend to make a concerted effort to get them on there. I think I’ll aim to put this one on as soon as it’s finished and then add some of the others at the same time…….so watch this space!
So that’s about all I have to show you for this week and it’s just as well because I know that Julia likes her What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday’ers to keep things short so it makes it easier to visit more desks.
Thanks for stopping by and ………….
