Week one has been very hectic for me. Aside from our normal housework and homeschool schedule, we have had lots of extra errands added in. In addition to doing the layout a day challenge, I have also been working on layouts and projects for various design teams. In truth, I have actually been making two layouts per day. I know what you're thinking. That's crazy. Part of me would agree, however, in actuality, I find my creativity is exploding. The layouts are coming to me with ease. The only thing I am really struggling with is finding the time to blog and write articles for all the things I want to share.
True to my promise, I am referring to sketches for each of my LOAD215 layouts. Here is a roundup up my layouts from days 1-5.
Instead, I chose to tackle a recent sketch from the Get It Scrapped blog. I always adore pages with large photos, but they aren't my forte. Havign a sketch as a guide helped. I wanted to capture the unease of a storm. I chose the mustard yellow paper both for the contrast with the photo and my association of yellow-green with bad storms. The rain paper is from a digital kit. I mixed in paper elements that were similar to those found within the kit.
January Cocoa Daisy kit along with a PageMaps sketch from my 2014 Scrapbook and Cards today Planner. Today, I stayed close to the LOAD prompt. I documented how Jujubee got her name from one of my son's favorite childhood strorybooks.
from a recent Project Life layout to create a complimentary page.This is based on an archived sketch from Scrapbook Challenges.
this month's stashbuster challenge at Cocoa Daisy.
So far, I am very happy with my progress. I will continue to use sketches from Get It Scrapped, Scrapbook challenges, Simple Scrapper and my SCT Page Maps planner. I hope I can use up the planner by the end of February so I can toss it out and begin the sketches for the 2015 planner.
Something I do need to work on...using my stamps. I have yet to really use them for this month's challenge in the Get It Scrapped forum.
