Scrapbooking has become a very new creative adventure for me, and something I thought was definitely 'not for me'. However, with the help of many amazing blogs and designers I have become completely engrossed and obsessed in stamps, stickers, patterned paper and photos.
Being so new to all this I thought it would be a fun to join an e-course or something similar to see how everyone else is doing it and get some inspiration. And that's exactly what I found when I signed up to Lexi Bridges' "This is me" class over at Studio Calico. The idea is to create a mini album all about me. I first discovered Lexi from her process video on project life at Two Peas in a Bucket and I loved her design sense and style. It has been so amazing to see everyone's progress.
I'm taking this as an opportunity to develop my own scrapbooking style and learn a bit more about myself, what I love and what my wildest dreams are! Sounds like fun, right? This is my title page for my mini album and I decided to do two 4x6 layouts rather than a bigger 6x8 as I'm not quite comfortable with doing a layout that big - yet.
I chose two photos that I thought were really representative of me and what I like about myself, the first is quite literally a 'mug-shot' of me sitting with a messy craft shelf behind me and a Cath Kidston mug in hand, this is usually how I can be found. The second is a photo of me out and about, I was with people I love and having a great time and smiling fully, which is rare!
The top layout is very 'me' and the colours I love, the bottom one is more of what I am currently liking, pink and brown are not particularly my favourite colours but I have recently been very drawn to them so that's why included them on the title page.
