Today I want to show you a page I made for the March 2peas theme of #shapeupyourscrapbooking. You can see the page here, see more details and read who inspired the page :). In the related product here (below) on my blog, I added a link to the Silhouette Cut files I used. I am so in love with roses right now.
This is a new month and I have been knee deep in admin the whole morning. I am weird like that, but when my admin is up to date, i feel much better. I love accounting but don’t tell on me! My art class has been going very well and today i want to share an email I got from one of the students. She was kind enough to give me permission to share.
I recently undertook your art class workshop at two peas. Firstly I wanted to thank you for such a fun and informative workshop. It has got to be one of the most influential workshops I have taken to date. I have been scrapping for three years now mostly making mini’s, cards, tags and other altered items, however when it has come to layouts I have always been so overwhelmed by all the design rules, products and techniques that I have always been too scared to try it. Even when it comes to my mini’s I have not put photo’s in them because I am too scared to mess them up since I just did not know what I was doing. Your style and approach to scrapbooking is so relaxed, experimental and fun that it has inspired me to create some layouts which I have not done since I started 3 years ago. I now look at products in a different way and can’t wait to get my hands dirty. The new passion you have injected into my craft is so wonderful that I am will remain forever grateful. Thank you, thank you, thank you so much. – Tash Daly
I was so grateful when I read her email. This is really my heart with this art class. To show you that art on a page does not have to be intimidating at all. That making a mistake sometimes can be for the best and yes, even if you mess up, it’s only paper. Maybe that’s one of the reasons why I love working on white cardstock. I bought 3 packs of 50 sheets heavy weight American Crafts white cardstock at a discount price and for some reason that made it easier for me to just drag a page closer and experiment on it. I have thrown many such sheets in the garbage. It takes practice… but sometimes you just need someone to tell you (and show you) to just go for it! I am your person. and I have got your back!
