what's next

yay! it's friday. i'm going to have a very busy weekend, with the possibility of working the whole thing, but it's still friday which i love.

wanted to share another layout with you guys.  i'm always looking all around me for inspiration for layouts. i saw a recent post on a forum asking if you know your scrapbooking style yet...i definitely feel i'm beginning to create layouts that i love. i like a mix of the modern w/ some florals/butterflies/doilies.  some days i lean more modern such as when i created this layout.

i found the photo and knew i wanted to do some kind of pop of color to set off this bw photo. first i remembered pinning this page, specifically the layout with the washes of color blocking. i have quite a few mister huey's but some colors i just don't reach for every time and this gave me a chance to use those. i did get a bit stumped as to a title, so i just grabbed a magazine i had and started flipping through it looking for some words to jump out at me. i ran across this title "what's next" and loved the font/color and so i just clipped it out to use for the title. i can soooo see myself doing this a lot more often. this is one of my favorite layouts i've created.

it says 2011 because that's when the photo was taken...

title cut out of magazine

strips of washi tape

mr huey spray inks

the journaling says - "what's next?...that's the question that keeps popping up in my head and in my prayers. sometimes i feel that my life is currently in some holding pattern. i am trying to learn to look beyond that question and to start living my life truly fully in every moment of everyday!"

  1. This is great! Love the use of spray inks and washi!

  2. Love the way you used your mists and tape! I think I need to get some Mr. Huey...

  3. Love what you were writing about on Ali Edwards OLW. It was as if you have listend to every word I said the past month. I think many feel the same way, especially as I get older.
