It is a rare thing for me to get a layout done these days, but I worked on this one on both Saturday and Sunday, and what do you know, here it is.
I found Natasha through Donna’s blog, but when I looked at her site, I was in love! And as I already said, inspired. This really is the style I’m hoping to achieve with my scrapbooking. I’m not as full of little bits as Natasha, but that is okay – the world already has a Natasha, so I can be me.
In line with my earlier post today (see below) I gave it some thought as to why this is so my style. Here are my two answers:
1. I love the romantic softness, but I also love the distress, which allows me to scrapbook my boy and his dad and include the romance without being too girlie – a balance I’ve always wanted to master; and
2. It allows me to use lots of techniques, and I get a real sense of satisfaction from using lots of techniques, trying new things, and being a bit adventurous. Basically, I am not a product driven scrapper, but a technique driving artist (okay, artist may be a bit of a stretch, but it is my goal to create art.
Now, if I could afford all the product that you’ll see on both Donna and Natasha’s blogs, I’m sure my pages would have more on them. But for now, the bits I’m able to accomplish make me happy.
Thanks for looking! Comments and suggestions always welcome!
