Bits by Bit, Piece by Piece

Here's my favourite layout from September. Its very clean (where's the ink Sharon?) and I had real fun doing this - making a page without any 12X12" cardstock or patterned paper. The entire page is made up of journaling tags. They're all held together by one transparency in the middle.

Layout Title: "Perfectly Ordinary (and perfectly beautiful)"
Another shot of it on a piece of chipboard so you know there isn't a piece of cardstock below:
Journaling reads: "Not always exciting, sometimes mundane, often routine but always precious - Perfectly ordinary and perfectly beautiful"

That's what life is like these days.

Try this:
1. Collect together all kinds of journaling tags or die-cuts (good to have a coherent colour scheme)
2. Using a transparency as your base and your cutting mat as your guide, arrange the larger items to form a page around 12X12" in size
3. Layer, layer, layer!

Quite fun to do cos you can't quite know how it turns out in the end....might do this again - in colour! On to the next scrapbooking adventure! I get to work with canvas in October again! Woo Hoo!

I like! Good idea to do this in colour! It's a fantastic way to use up those spare jounalling tags. Cant buy them in ones. Gotta get in bulk so at least now there's a way to use them all up. Ever tot of a journalling journal??!! Hee hee!
