Keep Doing What You're Doing

I just love scrapbooking. The past couple of days have been proof of that. I have created some for-no-reason-and-just-because-I-love-to projects. It's so stress- relieving for me. I sometimes stress about how my page is or isn't turning out like I want it to, but when I just go with it, it's so much fun. It truly is therapy for me. Pretty paper and memory-filled photos? Yes, please! 

I have had this photo printed for a little bit. It's just an outfit selfie that I took right before going to work. But I thought, why not document how my "style" has come about from having to dress up for work? So that's just what I went about doing. 

Something went a little crazy on my layout towards the end of the process. I didn't like the plain white background, so I decided to stamp on it. Oops. It was too bold. So I painted over it with white mist, which usually lightens the color of the ink. But it smeared the mist drops that I had already splattered on my page. Double oops. I was tempted to just paint over it all with white paint, then I stopped. Why not just go with it?! That's kinda been my motto lately. ;)



P.S. Currently 8.5x11 is my favorite size to scrapbook. Less space to fill up and it seems like I have been doing a lot of single-photo layouts lately and so it's easier to do a smaller page with one picture.



P.P.S. I used the gorgeous Studio Calico kit add-on "Merlin" that I won from the Just Two Midwest Girls challenge blog. I LOVE IT! If only I could afford to subscribe to Studio Calico... I'd be in heaven. 

Ok that's it for today!

This is lovely! You used the perfect floral paper for your layout. :)

Art/scrapbooking is so relaxing for me too.
