- I've started to embrace spray mist in my own small way.
- I keep pictures and papers on my "work" table the entire week and take five minutes here and there to move things around and get the creative juices flowing.
- I use my small bits of creative time during the week to jumpstart my larger blocks of creative time on the weekend.
- I'm doing my very best to embrace my mistakes.
- I stamp on my layouts.
- I try new things.
- I'm finally realizing it is okay.
So in the spirit of all things creative and process oriented. I thought I'd show you the evolution of a layout. Since I've started scrapping about my nephew - I often choose the photo prior to the story. I'm finding that I don't always need words - which is a HUGE departure from my previous approach. I still love my words - I'm just okay with them being minimal, and in some cases, non-existent. I'm kind of loving that right now. So without further ado....
First I chose the photos and products. I played around with the photo placement. I really loved the picture on the left and wanted it on top. I went with the second option.
Next, I chose my spray mist and paper colors based on the boys outfit.
Next up, title work - probably one of the hardest steps. I always wish I had more letters in different styles.
Now the embellishing begins...
Finally - I added some sewing around the clouds and the hearts on the cameras. Finished!
So, that's it for today. Hope my process is interesting or helpful in some way. I can't say enough about splatters and sewing. I love it so much. Hope everyone has a great Thursday. Until then...
