Combining the kit with Lain's prompts has used it up much more quickly than last month so I will be raring to go again with the new inspiration kit when it is published on August (can you believe it's nearly August?!?) 5th.
Prompt 21 was Q for Quick - we should have made our layouts in 30 minutes or less. Yeah, right!
I'm a slow scrapper. Really. Slow.
And that just isn't a problem for me. I'm not trying to catch up. Not trying to fill the album before the next event. Not trying to fit in the scrapping around a more than full life. I'm just scrapping for me. It's my main hobby. I don't scrap chronologically and I'm not working with new photos. I'm just tootling along, doing my thing and taking my time over it. Doesn't mean I'm not in awe of people who can. It must be great to get more than one page done at a crop or an album completed before the next holiday. But my slow style scrapping? If that means I only complete one page in a sitting or one page a week, then so be it. I'm not sure I could do a page in 30 minutes even if I wanted to. Maybe I should try it one day - just to see how it feels.
This one took ages as I was unsure about the photos. Then unsure about what scraps I could use in the kit. Then the design was hard. Then I decided to do a lot of cutting for my cluster. Well, you get the idea!
In the end, I was ok with the result. These are the types of photos that can be difficult to decide what to do with but this seemed to be the story that needed telling. (I have since changed the journalling to add in the word that's missing!). Oh yes, and I used up some more of my never ending brad stash!

Day 22 was R is for Recycling.
This one was easy.
I recycled June's Scrap Happy sketch including the orientation and my banner cluster. I recycled many of the bits and pieces left over in my kit. And I recycled some basics that are part of my style: little white space, clusters, dimension, layers, banners, string bows and inking. Not so sure about the tag and bird banners but it was a lot of fun to make this and I love the bright colours.
|Ingonish Beach layout #8|
So, 8 layouts using up 16 photos, lots of brads and dozes of banners (well, quite a few anyway.)
I may still try to get one more layout from the kit and I have already cut out some card blanks to make up. Then it'll be goodbye once again to Ingonish Beach and the new kit is just around the corner.
