time.. I don't give myself time. When I do that first step process of envisaging how the photos will look on the final page, instead of going through the process I just want to go to the finished product.
Looking at recent pages I am skipping over anything that takes time, when did I get into this rush, I don't know because I have time set aside for scrapping but in this mind set I find I do very little but shuffle papers.
SO today I am putting in the effort, doing a few different techniques and not worrying if I am still working on this layout tomorrow. See what happened was when I scrapped every single photo it was easy, you were always in the groove, now the boys are a bit bigger and they already have 14 albums between the two of them so I had to back off and be more selective of what I scrapped. This put more time between scrapping, lots of distraction some good books and then WHAM!!
it is gone, I've run off the road and I can't even drag up an idea from the depths of my mind. I want to get back to that middle road, where I can be super simple or a bit artistic and it is all good.
I've started a new page, I am going for arty, I've cut things out and I've painted some glad wrap (saw this HERE
and loved the idea) but above all I am going slowly, enjoying the process because the process is the most important part of the finished product.
