So I mentioned a while back that I want to add more structure to the blog. I am going to try to add in some regular features. Sunday At Home, Monday's Musings, Thursday: Trending, and Behind the Page post. I have grand plans...LOL. It is all in the implementation!
The topic of trending doesn't necessary have to mean "trend," like a fad. Instead, I see is as what is getting attention, what is hot, what is catching my attention in a new way. And how can that be incorporated into my crafting.
One trend I have seen lately and have certainly engaged in is using little strips of paper instead of focusing on big blocks. I made a move to this type of scrapping in an effort to shake things up and make my work more interesting. I don't know about you, but sometimes I feel like I am creating the same layout over and over. It gets boring and I feel stuck. So I like to move in a different direction.
I took the concept of strips and moved them away from the edges to the middle of the page. I also went vertical instead of horizontal. It shook things up just enough.
I used Crate Paper's Random here. Gosh, I love Crate. They had me at chipboard! That orange and raspberry together...yummo!
A trend I can't get enough of is clouds...I adore them. They added a final touch here!
I like the strips. I like the vertical orientation. The white space.
What has caught your attention lately? I would love to see!
