I don’t mean Jump as in the “top yourself” kind of “jump off a bridge” jump, I mean the “Why the heck not, just go on and do it for Pete’s sake!” kind of Jump….
I’ve been catching myself scrapping for the mags again and I have to stop because the whole process feels quite mechanical when I do that – like I’m just churning them out with no passion.
It’s like anything, I guess, isn’t it? I mean, if you do something with passion, it’s always going to give you a spiritual lift. And I don’t just mean THAT kind of passion, people, LOL – I mean the passion for life, the passion for Romance, the passion for excess of love and living and happiness.
On a LO I completed this week I have used one of my favourite quotes by an artist called Georgia O’Keefe:
“I’ve been terrified every single moment of my life and I’ve never let it stop me from doing what I wanted to do…….”
That quote describes me in a nutshell – half terrified and half adventurous…..always willing to jump off that bridge or act like a crazy woman, but underneath it terrified that I am going to kill myself in the process.Is that what they call an adrenaline junkie? I think I’m just a drama junkie. I seem to thrive on the stuff lol.
So that brings me to my approach to scrapping this week, and I am pretty happy with the way that it has all turned out. I’ve been scrapping like a mad woman (some of which I can’t show you yet – sorry!) and these are some of the LO’s I have produced this week:
See how different they all are? I guess they have one thing in common – lots of layers and heaps of detail.
ON another note, I just uploaded some new Tips for you this week – I have finished writing the explanation and instructions for the Patchwork Tip and I have also included a new Tips and Techniques Freebie – using WINGS on your LO’s.
I have even included a wings template! Lots of different shaped wings – quite different to the Hambly or 7 Gypsies versions.
So go have a play, girls, and message me if you get a chance, ok?
Oh! and I forgot to mention that you can catch my LO from the Scrapbook Creations Colour Competition in this month’s issue of the magazine – page number 34. But in case you are like many others and can’t quite see the picture clearly, then here it is full size:
You can also catch two of my LO’s in this month’s issue of Scrapbooking Memories. In the Vintage section and the Final Encore section.
Take care all,
