This is the left page of my layout, contaning the title and main journalling. I wanted to make the title look a little like a menu or something a chinese restaurant might have on a wall, so I used 2 strings of gold beads, with the beautiful Chinese brush type font. I didn't have all the different shades of green paper that I wanted, so the title itself if fully printed with the green and the red writing . The red floral is a scrap pack piece i had.
I really like this l/o but still feel vaguely dissatisfied. A little too rigid still? I don't quite know.
