Who doesn't like a good scrapbooking challenge !? With that thought in mind, I'd like to start a weekly challenge involving different techniques, themes, sketches and/or products. I'm hoping to jump start my scrapping and bring whoever else wants to participate along with me ! Let me know what you think... leave me a comment ! (I'm even thinking of giving out a prize monthly for fun.)
I've been being very *free* with my scrapbook style lately and totally enjoying it. There is something very cool about letting go and creating just for the sake of creating. A quote by Moshe Dayan says "Freedom is the oxygen of the soul".... how true this is, not only our everyday freedoms but the freedom we give ourselves artistically !! I know I am so much happier if I enjoy the process rather than limiting myself to that box of preconceived notions about what scrapping is or should be.
I created this layout because I love paperdolls and was just really being kind of silly.
This birthday layout started with two pretty good photos and several of those bad ones.... you know the kind - the far away, dark, getting everyone in the photo at the party kind. So I cropped the *bad* photos and sprinkled them alongside the better photos with sequins. Also, a fun tip: use those older word and phrase stickers for titles and journaling by cutting the letters apart and using as sort of a ransom font look.
