Sat. 2/16 - Great Blue Heron


Sat. 2/16 - Great Blue Heron

I thought the colors for this week were perfect for this photo of a Great Blue Heron that I took last fall. It's such a spectacular bird! Gently blended, this photo flows almost seamlessly into Durin Eberhart's Chenille paper. I've seen several layouts like this recently - with the large photo on top and the ribbon crossways. I wish I could remember their names to give credit.

    Well, you knew I was going to love this bird photo, didn't you? :D It's gorgeous, Aggie. I love the beautiful way you've blended it, and the lovely colors you've used. I especially like your title-work and your overall design. Great page!
    I also love the bird photo, and the greens. I also like your treatment with the border and work across the bottom. Great job!
    What an amazing photo! I love the stillness of it shown by the reflection. There's a paper behind that? You're right it does blend so well. The bulrushes are a lovely touch.
    I love the blending all the way through the page. The title is very nice.
    You do such outstanding work on your layouts. Love the picture. Thanks for sharing.
    Gosh, this is pretty!!! Your photo is aweseom -- blue herons are so much fun to watch--so elegant! Nice how you captured his shadow in the water. Love your use of color and that your photo takes 2/3 of the page. The curly-q's at the top of the border are very nice. Great LO!
    Aggie, this is beautiful! Love your bottom treatment &, of course, the photo!
    Beautiful page, Aggie. And, yes, you're right. If you didn't tell us, I wouldn't have noticed the blending at all. Thanks for participating!
    Oh, Aggie this is gorgeous. Wow, what a photo and reflection - so cool you were able to get that shot. I really like your super beautiful blending and how you put this page together. A real work of art. Great page.
    So pretty Aggie, great reflection and I really like the way you arranged the bottom paper (and how the swirls work into the photo) and embellishments.
