Hello Friday... Woo hoo!!! And with a Holiday Monday... I love you more! LOL
Welcome to the weekend.
Have I told you before that I don't really know what my scrapbooking style is? I enjoy most of the styles very much. I'd probably say Vintage is the less I enjoy, but I sure appreciate it, and I have to admit that it is the shabby vintage the one I don't identified with, but the vintage elements such as antiques images, or books, doilies, I do enjoy that.
I like CAS... I think it is THE style sometimes needed to communicate or stand out certain messages or elements.
I also like modern.. love the new techniques, the trendy stuff... and love to challenge me to do new things (under my budget's permission).
I love to do my own embellishments, I love to use things that are not meant to be used for what I use them... LOL...
I even read a book about finding your own style on scrapbooking and I go even more confused because I ended up loving them all.
Anyway... I made this layout last week... and I found out I enjoyed it a lot... and I made it relatively quick and enjoying every step of it. My husband said it was too crowded for my style, but then every-time I saw it I found so much meaning in every element. If this would be a style, this is mine.
Love the callouts with everyday messages... You know I mainly love scrapbooking because I can document the everyday blessings... not just special events or dates... but the everyday...
Love that I used this "one step up" tag... from a blouse... Yes! I take the new clothes tag that are cool and keep them for possible use in projects... I know I'm crazy, but don't you love this one?
I love that I hand-cut my little banner.. without stencils, or die cuts... just my hands and scissors.
Love the washi tape, the little camera (a friend gave it to me in a class) and love I added dimension foam squares to make the edges pop.
And if you look a little down from there, there is a stamp arrow indicating where I am...
Love the stamping... the wine bottle and glass 'cause I love wine... (have you read the title of my blog?), the ticket date (love to put a date on things)...
The arrow, the bottle/wine glass and the ticket are images from Unity Stamp Co.
Love the heart ribbon (all about love), female symbol (representing me), a little flower made by hand too.. and yesss, another clothes tag h.i.p. (happening in the present). Love that the journaling was a pure confession full of honesty and not being ashamed of the present living. Every element somehow has a connection with the journaling I included in my big callout... of course the nice doggy stamped at right (my lovely dog son).
Love that the photo is very spontaneous... this is not the pose intended...
Love the buttons and the imperfection of the edges in the page...
And love the asymmetry. Love the different colors that are not coordinated at all but that at the same time can live together and communicate.
Do you know what style is this? Please tell me.
