I did a couple of layouts over the Chinese New Year week, mostly like the above. Lots of white space, misting and layering of the embellishments and paper. They are quite a change from the usual girly layering that I always end up on my layouts. I liked how it turned out because the overall look is still quite classy and most of all, such layouts allow me to use up the odd piece of paper and remaining elements from a collection that I always end up with after my fussy cutting and layering!!!
And if I need a little extra touch here or there, it forces me to go through my ever-increasing stash and cross- coordinate between brands, colors and patterns. In short, I have to think a bit more and I like that little challenges to myself. I am a person who gets bored easily so these little things keep me fascinated on scrapping. Otherwise, I may turn into my little girl who likes to try out new things but have no sustained interest in anything and my scrapping hobby has garnered too much investment to give up now! Lols!
What else have I been busy with the past few days? This little one just blew my mind away...
She's my new little niece and I did some newborn photography shots for her! She's gorgeous right? And I am thankful to her parents who were so sporting and fun with her photo shoot!
