Hi everybody! It's Gia back in the Art Studio today showing you all a layout I made yesterday while celebrating National Scrapbooking Day. There were so many challenges, online giveaways, and other events taking place it was impossible to take everything in, wasn't it? I came across a challenge to make a "paperless" layout. Of course by paperless, they meant patterned paper-less. I decided this would be a good challenge for me, because patterned paper is actually my all time favorite supply. So I don't always make the most budget friendly decisions when it comes to acquiring the stuff. It is easy to buy and hoard way, way , WAY more than you need. Know what I'm sayin' ?
- Using Simple Stories Snap cards in place of cutting in to whole sheets of 12 x 12 paper.
- Checking my stash for previous lines' leftovers that continue to be very usable with this year's new releases! (I don't know if you have noticed this, but some of my favorite designers have been making this possible with this continuity from one release to the next! My pocketbook thanks them!!)
- I created my own "patterns" free-stylin' it with some watercolor paints which cost me- oh a few drops of water!
