YES THERE WILL BE A PROMISE .....
So, let's get to it LOL .... before I bore you to tears, or keep you here all day ;)
Why did you start your channel (in my case blog): It is a two-fold reason really. I have family and friends that live far away from me (elsewhere in Canada, in Ireland, Spain and France, mainly) and they asked me to start a blog where they could see my scrapbook pages but where I could also tell the story behind the layouts. After a false start in early 2013 (three lame posts, and then a year hiatus), I finally got it up and running in early 2014 and I would say that the real reason was to participate in this lovely community we have on YouTube and Facebook. I wanted somewhere where I could give a little more detail about my layouts, from the supplies I used to the stories behind the layouts. I also wanted somewhere where I could participate in all the lovely challenges that we have. And one of my very first posts was a response to one of Nancy's early challenges!
What is your scrappy style and how has it changed. I love this question, and it got me looking back through a few albums of the week, which by the way I don't do often enough!!
Like many of you I don't know if I can easily put a word to my style - fairly clean I think, a little eclectic since I like to try new techniques that I see a lot of you doing so beautifully. Someone made me notice lately that I often do "detached embellishment clusters" as opposed to the layered style. I also cannot make a page without wood veneer, flair and enamel dots.
Probably the best way to show my srappy evolution (LOL), is in photos.
My first pages, after taking a class at my local LSS in 2007 :
Then I discovered Two Peas and took Shimelle's Hitchhikers class .... and many of her other classes. Here is my Shimelle phase (see the butterflies Nancy?) :
Here are a couple of my latest layouts :
What project have you been meaning to start : In my case, it is more a case of projects I want to finish :
- My backpacking trip albums
- My December Documented 2014 (not even close to being done with this one LOL)
