Lately when I scrap, I have some sort of plan. Or at least some sort of technique I know I want to use.
I can usually see some sort of outcome in my head before I get going.
And you know what? There is freedom in that.
But I am missing some spontaneity.
So, all I have here are some bits and pieces and my photo. There is no other plan.
Playing around with layering...
I am liking this...But, I want a bit of dimension...
So, a little exacto knife action on the banner portion of my title and the hot air balloon on the background paper...
That will work! But, I want a more hand made touch so a little washi and a toothpick should make for a fun little embellishment:Yep! I like that little touch of black and white polka dot.
And now I realize that I have NOTHING adhered! HA!
Glue gun to the rescue. I am so in love with using my glue gun lately. Acid free? I dunno. I am not sure I am too concerned with that, though. It is just so easy to lift something up, squirt a little hot glue and know that things will NOT fall off! That's a beautiful thing!
(ETA: I have been told that things won't stick long term... anyone have experience with that? Do you have any layouts that are several years old, adhered with a glue gun? Did they fall apart? Please tell me they didn't! I want to keep using and loving this trusty glue gun....)
All that is now adhered. But, I am bored now. Maybe some mist lines?
Hmmmm.... Not too sure about that. But, not to worry! I will make it work!But first, some teeny little bits cut out from the packaging of some Amy Tam die cuts should add a nice little touch...
How adorable is that tiny tree?!?!
OK, I have done some pen work on my mist lines and am feeling better about that so now it's time for my journaling. I have a clear pocket to use, and I want to keep the transparent feel. A little piece of a glassine bag might just work:Ah yes! That is what I had in mind:
Almost done, but I just feel like the whole page needs a little more personality. Maybe some litte doodled circles?
Sure! Why not?
There we have it!
Little washi banners...And some transparent journaling...
Thanks for joining me for this spontaneous scrapping adventure :)
