Every week I receive a newsletter from Ali Edwards. Each week she has a scrapbooking challenge and this week I took her on. She suggested we look at our style, and try something new. “Scraplift” (scrapbooking talk for ‘steal a good idea’) something that we wouldn’t normally do. Before you can do that, you have to look at what you are already doing. So, above I posted my last page. There is a lot going on. When I look at it, it feels like a meal. There is a lot to digest. And I like that. I like the little bits. The little pictures of waves and jellyfish and feet. And I like the little bits of patterned paper. This is typical of what I do right now.
To take on the challenge I looked for something different. So I found a beautiful scrapbook page in a magazine. It was striking because the photo was so beautiful. There wasn’t a lot of fuss on the page. So I tried it out. My goals were: lots of white space (or in this case, brown), use of a quote (I got this one off of quoteland.com) and to get that gel pen rolling.
I think that it came out alright. I don't think I did a great job photographing it, but I am pleased with the results.
