Dress it up

Sometime when I have made a layout I find it a bit boring and so was the case with the original layout I did for the September 15 sketch. I decided to dress it up a bit.

This is the original layout:

I wanted to add some paint stains but I did not want to get paint on the photo and decorations so I made myself a simple mask:

I then cut down the size of the page and rounded the corners, added a frame , moved the mini alphas and added some machine stitching. I like it so much better dressed up like this:

What do you think?

Petra, that is so clever. I've never thought to cover it with a paper template then apply the splatters. I've always worked in the reverse order, which doesn't always work. Must try this next time. Thanks for sharing.
