Mess is my middle name: A scrapbook Layout


Blah. That's how I've felt the last two days. Blah. I have so much on my mind that I don't even know what to think, or do anymore. That's where scrapbooking came in.  It felt so nice to create something and not have to think about anything other than what I was going to make the layout look like.



Pink. Of course I had to make a layout using pink. It's just my thing *Smile* I took this photo of a work in progress, and it showcases perfectly what happens when I'm creating. Mess. Pure and simple. I really try to be organized but I'm beginning to feel that it is impossible. Not even just with crafting…but that's another story. All I can say is Thank Goodness for my husband.
 
The title pretty much explains itself. I chose different letters to reflect the Mess.



I'm not usually a doodler, or embellisher but I've been trying to push my creativity lately so I just went with the first thing that came to mind.  One thing I'm getting better with, is layers. A lot of my older stuff is so flat, so I've been creating the first layer of 'stuff' then adding on until it looks complete.



The picture is kind of blurry, but I outlined the butterflies to give them more oomph and added some glitter glue.



Because of the theme of the layout I wanted a page to reflect the Mess, but in a clean, design like sort of way.  I think I achieved that. Now it's back to thinking....or maybe I'll just create another layout.

  1. I love it! Especially the doodling. I've been trying to that more too, even if it's just while I'm on the phone.
