One of my "finds" has been a series called "From Scraps to Pages" from "Aurorinbag". A series of process videos using all scraps? Yes please! Here's one video that managed to inspire me in my very uninspired state:
Once I got over the fact that December was supposed to be "finishing off projects" month and decided that any creativity was better than nothing, I pulled out some cardstock scraps to see what I could come up with.
I ended up making one white background . . .
a pink one . . .
a blue one . . .
a tan one . . .
and a multicoloured one!
And that's as far as I got. I arranged them in one sitting, stitched them down over another sitting or two, then left them in a pile. Finally, finally, I can show you a finished page!
But first, something else to share . . the fresh deliciousness that is this month's Scrapbook Boutique challenge!
White, yellow and green. Yummy or what?
Before I could begin, I took a moment to add a couple of items to my hastily constructed January Counterfeit Kit: a sheet of yellow paper, some stickers and layered cardstock, all from Echo Park "For the Record 2: Documented". Plus the white sheet of scrap cardstock background, of course.
There, now I get to say that I made this page "all from my kit!"
The photos aren't the best quality; they're from the first lot of photos I've printed from my phone, and I'm not sure if there's a better way to download them. Having said that, I kind of like the effect of the late afternoon sun streaming in from behind.
I'm totally loving finally having my Silhouette back in action, too. I think I'll be doing that layered effect a lot more often. What do you think?
I hope you find time to "take a moment" this weekend, whether it's to create, or take the family out for an adventure . . . enjoy!
