  • Weekly Challenge 53 ~ Critic Me!

    This weeks challenge is a little different (i think) if you cant take criticism dont join in this one lol

    we all have somewhere in our collections a page (or a few pages!) that just doesnt look 'right' either something is missing, the photo doesn't show up enough, the colours are wrong etc

    well this week i'd like you to firstly link those pages in this thread if they are already in the gallery or post up the image in this thread, then i'd like everyone to look at those pages and honestly say what they feel would improve the page

    the final part of the challenge is then for you to rework your page using the suggestions/criticism you have been given by everyone

    so to recap

    1) upload a page or a few pages that you have previously scrapped that you feel just dont look 'right'

    2) look at the pages uploaded and constructively suggest what you would do to improve the pages

    3) once you have suggestions to improve your page, rework it and then re-post to the gallery or this thread

    clear as mud huh!!!!

      Here is my entry to be critiqued. Deanne made a beautiful set of embies to work with that week, but I think I ruined it with the green paper. I have this layout on my wall and hate it every time I see it. Critic away!

        Oh man this will be hard!! I am one of those people who refuse to judge someone else's work after they have worked so hard at it. I feel bad telling them even a slight change might make it that much better. I will try though. The easy part for me will be uploading pages that I am not so happy with and I try to take suggestions and put them to good use.
        I will find one soon...

            Ok i'll start cos im like that, but dont get offended its just suggestions

            i'd personally make the journal booklet much larger taking over most of the page then adding the photo frame & photo onto the blank space on the first booklet page and drop the rose down onto the bottom righthand corner

              I think the green is a little bright for the shade of blue try a more sage green background (ive attached one that might work)

                      OK here is mine, it is probably the least favorite of mine. I think it is probably because I am not the frilly type and it is a little more plain than what I usually do (I knew I would end up critiquing myself) . Not sure though, help....

                        I really like it, but how about some soft word art as an overlay for the paper. Maybe different sayings typed in different but elegant fonts?

                          I agree with Fiona, just a shade lighter green or maybe a beige or something. I like it though! And I love her facial expression.

                            I agree with Fiona, maybe even a little more "grayer" green, or two layers of different color greens, making the center color smaller so the second color would show through the "holes" in the blue border.
