Normal Service Has Been Resumed

I have been experimenting with different styles recently.  Mostly prompted by two things - firstly my application for the Kaisercraft DT (which was unsuccessful but I am heartened that I got a thank you for applying email when some ladies I know didn't even get that)  and as a result of looking at some of their DT's work was prompted to try a little messy play and taking Katherine's class at the recent ATDML retreat - a bit of mixed media scrapbooking. 

Trying out a little mess.

Katherine's beautiful class.

Secondly, I chose some papers from the Crate Paper Confetti range as part of my May DT kit.  These papers seemed to cry out for more white space  and so far I have made three pages with a less is more approach.  

Experimenting with the Silhouette pens.

 A bit of faux project life

Splatters of gold paint and still loving the Polaroids I cut out for the ATDML Make &Take.

I decided that I like a bit of messy and will continue to experiment with that to see which way it takes me and white space is becoming less scarey.

But normal service has been resumed!

For this page I used this sketch

which I found on Pinterest and is from here .

I used lots of layering, my Silhouette to cut the title and flowers, leaves and little wooden butterflies. 

I can't decide which style is my style at the moment as I like all three types of scrapbooking - perhaps I just like playing with pretty paper and sparkly stuff without a care for boxing it into one style or another. 

I think I will just go with the flow and see where it takes me!

Do you feel you have a specific style?

Reasons to be cheerful:

1.  Scrapping a photo of Hannah, Eileen, Gracia and me together makes me smile.

2.  Planning a little more mess - have bought this

3.  After a really hard week - sound and lighting for five GCSE drama groups, supporting A Level Art and recording GCSE music pieces, all in one day, I am really looking forward to the weekend.

Oh, lovely stuff! Sometimes people tell me I have my own style, but I like trying out different things and making pages each take on their own least I try to!

I love your ability to layer embellishments so effectively. Isn't getting messy just so much fun?!

Fantastic layouts. Sorry to hear you didn't get on the DT, I was so sure you would x
