I read a great post on Misty Cato’s blog (see link on right) about the balance between creating artistic layouts that look beautiful and creating meaningful layouts that will be a record for prosperity. As I am just setting out on my adventure into digi-scrapping I am probably not doing either very well yet. Certainly I loved the great layout Misty had created of her son’s favourite things – and I plan to ‘scraplift’ the idea for my kids. Maybe a project I could do with them over the Easter Holidays.
So I would be interested in your views if you scrap – what so you think of the balance between scrapping for art and for record keeping?
Certainly the heritage family layouts I make contain some facts -but to date that is all – just a few facts. I would like add some more meaningful journalling to them – but its not because I don’t want to detract from the artistic content – it’s just I don’t feel comfortable with journalling yet!
Anyway – its all a journey, and I am only setting out!
Enough rambling about scrapping.
I was able to go to the new gym tonight. I was faithfully going through my new programme, and had nearly finished, when I got talked into joining an aerobics class that was just starting. There were only 5 of us in the class – so nowhere to hide. Well – I made it through – just, and them had a lovely relaxing, short swim. When I got home, 2 kids already in bed and DH had our meal ready – lovely.
So, no layout to show you tonight, but check back soon.
In the meantime, here is my latest purchase – Creating Beauty from that wonderful new site Weeds & Wildflowers. https://weedsandwildflowersdesign.typepad.com/
