Creativity In The Making

2-pg. 12×12 layout
Journaling written to my friend, Dedra Long reads: Shooting our DVD together — that was a blast. It was hard work, definitely. But we had FUN! I remember laughing and laughing with you, even though I can’t remember what was so funny. By looking at the photos, it was clearly something about hair. Clearly. :) I’m so glad we did these two long days of video shoots. It was one of my favorite Paperclipping memories.

Supplies: Creative Imaginations Die Cut Paper * 7 Gypsies yellow polka dot paper * Tattered Angels Glimmer Glass (Nature) * Tim Holtz Idea-ology Type Charms * Prima Rhinestone Flourish * Basic Grey yellow rub-on’s.

  • Great tips!!!

    I've read in some forums that LOs with just one pic are expensive because we use all the stuff (paper, embellies, etc) for just one photo… just another point of view, I guess… I think that if the story we want to tell is showed in just one pic, is fine; if we have ten+ pics, fine too!! Is OK as long as we like it and we tell the story :)

    That's why I enjoy your tutorials a lot, you give us the tools we need and encourage us to tell our stories…

    THANKS :)

  • Thanks, Mariangeles. I love hearing your thoughts on this. I totally agree
    with you…I do whatever makes sense to tell my story, or what I'm feeling
    creatively at the moment. Also, as long as I'm not causing hardship to my
    family financially, I don't stress out about how much I spend on a layout.
    You can't put a price on creativity and storytelling. :)
