Project 365: 1/6 and 1/7 (8x8)
I've said this before, but I'm really having loads of fun trying out new things on these pages. This time I did some stamping for the very first time ... most of you will think, so what!, but for one reason or the other I was afraid to stamp on my LO's, silly I know, but that's the way it is. I'm hoping after this I will have the confidence to stamp on my 12x12 LO's as well... I really like the stamped border around the pages, and would love to try that again.
Once I decided I would stamp, I was thinking what would go with that to liven up the pages a bit, and I came up with painting with distress inks and a waterbrush. It gives a real cool dirty look I was going for. I also like the look of a stamp that wasn't applied in full, like a part of the left border and the mahogany stamp next to the pics on the left page. This were actually mistakes, but I'll be doing that again I'm sure!
1/6: I'm always in a much better mood and feeling a lot more positive when my house is clean. Nicely cleaned, no more stuff lying around, it should be like it is on the pics all of the time. And each time I've cleaned up, I'm thinking: "This time I'm going to keep it like this" ... Well, I can dream, can't I?
1/7: So Cold! While we're almost freezing to death when we go outside, Vita doesn't seem to mind the cold at all!
Off now to try something new on the next pages!
