and just so you don't think I'm going through a period where I'm not liking anything I create right now, that's not true. I've really made several layouts I like, some I like a lot. I think it was in July, I got on a roll, and I know I completed over 20 layouts, which for me, in one month, that is pretty super amazing!
Some I liked, some I didn't, but my mission was to get them done. Which is a good thing, because in August it started drying up to the point that I completed nothing from about the middle of August through all of Sept. Matter of fact, we were so busy working on the 8th street house for my MIL that weeks went by and I didn't even touch a scrappy item. Sad isn't it.
While my mojo was on over drive I was taking advantage of creating and spending less time posting. Plus, I was being super lazy taking pictures of the finished product. With all that being said.... here is a layout that I do like. I'd had it in my head for some time, on paper it's not quite how I envisioned it, I ended up going in a different direction, but I still like it. I like the tone on tone, using the negative part from the cut (got my cricut machine out), little pops of color, I just like it. It was really simple, and just flowed together so quickly, you gotta love that! Did some inking and some stamping, used some of my beloved wood veener embellies from Studio Calico.
Plus, I'm pretty fond of my subject matter, even if he might possibly threaten me when he discovers these pictures. That's the beauty of the kids being grown and gone, they can't say oh don't use that picture, don't put those in the album or post online... cause by the time they see it, it is done!
The blue sure does stand out doesn't it, and a year ago you wouldn't find in blue in my pages. Isn't if funny how what we like or are drawn to changes.
Have a peaceful happy day!
