A few weeks ago I went to an overnight crop (mentioned in the post below- very nice crop, very scary setting). I enjoyed it and was quite pleased with the layouts I was creating. Then I started to notice a bit of a trend. My two page layouts were looking remarkably similar. Clearly, I have a style.
Style, that's it! Sounds so much better than 'stuck in a rut', 'unimaginative', or 'boring'. I like my consistent style of course, but it's kind of funny. I think most people would describe me as very much NOT a boring person. Hopefully my layouts aren't either!
Here's the first one:
I like this one quite a bit. I struggled a lot to stamp the title- it's something I need to work on. I do not have enough confidence in my ability to stamp things straight the first time, so I always stamp my titles on separate paper. Practice makes perfect.
Darn it- still need to add that date!
I was especially pleased with the way the ribbon looked- it's a reversible ribbon from American Crafts and I think it finished the layout nicely.
Here we have layout 2. No, the butterflies aren't exactly relevant, but I think they're cute.
Hmmmm. From this distance it *does* look quite boring and empty. Funny, in person I thought it looked fine. Perhaps I should look at my stuff while it sits on the floor more often...
And finally, a lovely shot showcases the tips of my slippers. Oh yes, and a very purple layout too! Note to self: fix ribbon!
Now, just to assuage any concerns that I'm becoming the crazy lady who stays home every night scrapbooking pictures of her dog and nothing else, here is a layout I did about myself and the Aquarium.
This also proves that I do in fact get out of the house on occasion. Ignore that this was all the way back in September.
Sorry for the glare- I was too lazy to take stuff out of page protectors.
