Good Thursday morning!  You know what that means...Thoughtful Thursday at Thinking*Through*Design.  Today's thought is about grounding photos.  I have to say, I am learning as I go along here.  I don't think I gave much conscious thought to what I was doing to make my photos stand out on my pages.  I did realize while working on this LO, that my photo was getting lost on the page.  It was too close in color to the PP.  Aha!  I needed something to make the photo stand out, to ground it.  I chose a transparency with a framed edge in a darker, brighter color.  Now the photo is the focus.

 I do want to share that I almost ruined the whole page.  I tried to splatter some ink and it didn't come out right. I used a paintbrush to smear it around and it looked worse.  I added some watered down white paint then misted with white and was able to make it look frosty.


  1. Great layout!!! I love it when we can creatively "fix" our "mistakes". :)

  2. Great job with the grounding thought....love that you were so crative with your fix!! WTG!
