Ah, February — the month of love! And who doesn’t just love a beautiful love story?
It is always extremely difficult choosing a winner, but as Andrea went through the challenge gallery, this double-page spread by Imcgue really stood out:
The beautiful, timeless photos of her parents when they were young and newly in love flow seamlessly through to the photos of them after more than 60 years of marriage. This was achieved by keeping the same soft sepia tones throughout the two pages.
Her use of the ‘Scrap it Now’ template system introduced in the Your Story. Brilliant class is stunning! Adding the subtle tabs along the sides of the photos with dates helps to define the time-line of their lives and keeps the viewer engaged. The journaling begins with a light-hearted feel and slowly turns more compelling — much like most marriages, I would think.
So congratulations on winning the challenge, Imcgue, and thank you for sharing this precious story with us!
