I have been busy creating... you may have seen some of my recent tweets or this post I shared a few days ago. It had been a while since I have been able to spend time playing in my "studio"creating. I have had some time over the last couple of days to be creative and I've been having so much fun doing what I love!
I wanted to share a couple of the layouts that I recently made. I had a lot of fun putting these layouts together. These layouts definitely stretched me a little, I was using supplies given to me as part of the Design Team for The Scrapping Bug (a local scrapping store). I am not sure these would have been items I would have picked out myself but what I learnt is that I really need to step out of my "comfort zone" more often cause it was so much fun and invigorating.
This layout was really fun to put together, I inked the edges of the paper with craft ink. Even though there is a lot of grey on this page there is a lot of color too, bold color. To neutralize the color I decided to use black and white pictures in both layouts because I didn't want the colors from the pictures to compete with the colors in the layout
This layout isn't as bright but there are still hints of bright colors in the title.
I was really inspired by this lined pattern paper and I knew I needed to use it as the background for this layout. It seemed obvious to use the lines to my advantage, so I made a list (I love lists). Also, being the beginning of the year I thought it was appropriate to make a list of my dreams for 2012.
I had so much fun putting this title together. The title is where all the action happens on this layout. there are lots of layers and color and a little bit of bling!
I've been having so much fun creating lately. I love when I'm full of inspiration and ideas, it kinda sucks when life gets in the way of finding time to create but I am going to make an effort to make time.
