Does anyone get stuck when making a layout? I find it very frustrating. I'm not sure how to get myself unstuck.
Right now, I have a two page spread I'm working on. I have my pictures, and I have the templates I'd like to use. I picked out my primary kit based on colors I thought would work, but now I'm just not feeling it. The thing is, I don't have anything else - nor have I seen anything I'd buy - that makes me think, "Yes, this is the kit for these tough photos!" I've recolored a few elements, and I like it more now, but I'm still not in love with it.
I had the same thing happen with a layout I was playing around with for my mom. I mentioned in the post for it that I got stuck. I literally had a template and a picture, and I was 99% sure what kit I wanted to use for the beautiful shades of blue. But when I pulled in the background paper, I just got stuck. I no longer loved it, but I couldn't tell you why. I loved the kit, and it complemented the picture colors so well. My solution there ended up being to make the picture black and white, which was so unexpected. I then finished the layout in no time at all, and I really, really liked the final page.
The thing is, for the pages I'm stuck on now, I can't convert them to black and white. It takes away all of the things I love about the pictures since they are of very unique plants in a setting with bold colors. I'm just not sure what else I can do to get these pages where I want them to be.
