Re-visiting a layout or project....

I hope I'm not the only one out there that can look at a layout and know something is "missing". Recently I created a layout that I felt was just not quite "there" yet. It was for a challenge site and it was one of those times I had to just walk away and e.mail it the way it was.

Now, let me say I totally agree with the saying that sometimes we should embrace the imperfections we might see. I do it on a frequent basis. But, we are telling OUR story and I say, if you feel as though your story is incomplete, go ahead and finish it up!

I would walk by this layout everyday and it finally "hit" me. I knew what I needed to do to make the story complete. I'm the type of person that expresses my feelings with words (hence, the LOVE I have with song lyrics). Words can evoke deep feelings for me.

Here is the layout before:





Here is the completed layout:




On the updated version of this layout I stamped onto the tags and added them off to the side of the photo. Having such meaningful phrases and words next to Jon and I hit just the right spot.

I never "re-visit" layouts but having done so with this one, if I feel a story just isn't quite told yet I will be looking at the layout/project again.
So, do you re-visit layouts or projects, adding little details here and there that support your story after you thought it was complete?

I tend to not call a layout done, per se, but I don't have the sort of deadlines others have, so I don't have to say it's done at any given time. However, there are many a time that I will do everything that comes to mind on a layout but I am not entirely happy with it. So, I'll take a picture, and make it my wallpaper at work. Then all day for several days I'll be seeing the layout. And often there are ideas that spring up for me that way.
