When you send a transaction to an empty address you have to pay 0.257 tez allocation fee and in your case that caused a problem:

  1. At the block 930365 your balance was 1.336011 tez.

  2. At the block 930366 you tried to send a transaction with amount 1.1 tez, baker fee 0.015913 tez and allocation fee 0.257 tez - it's 1.372913‬ tez in total.

As you can see, you tried to spend more than you had.

By the way, I suggest you use TzKT Explorer with its detailed error messages:

Which client are you using to send the transaction? In the failing transaction you did not include the origination burn. However it seems that in a subsequent transaction you did include the origination burn and that it worked.
