What a weekend. SENZ was amazing. I mean it really was. Will post an update with a few pics in the next few days. I have always been behind the scenes teaching. This year I was out in the main arena. Loved it. More in a few days.
What am I doing now that I am home? I'm selling the 14 designs of Washi that didn't sell out at SENZ (only because I had lots more of these designs.). I'm ordering more molds...yes you heard me, I'm ordering more molds including new designs. What I didn't understand before I went to SENZ was just how hot the trend would be. It was THE new thing at SENZ. See here for my latest stocks and resin.
Anyway. I do still scrapbook.
I thought I'd share a layout I created recently that has come out in the latest Prima newsletter. It uses the new Prima range called Zephyr. It's all about teal and bright pops of colour. Possibly created with me in mind - no?
I've a few things going on with my scrapping at the moment. The first is the overwhelming need to "Finnbair" everything. This doesn't mean whole layouts full of steampunk and hugely dimensional accents, it just means small sprinklings of mixed media and coloured sprays. I haven't been this enthused about a style for so long, as those that saw me at SENZ can verify...
Resin. Resin pieces of all kinds. Whether it is pre-made accents from companies such as Prima, (used in this layout) or whether it is the kind we make ourselves (what technique was hot at SENZ? Molds and resin!!)...
Something that I did in this layout that I don't normally do is the high contrast black and white photos. Professional photographers would declare them "blown out" but it's a look I love and want to experiment with at the moment. Just for a while.
Check out the flags. Prima always has fun packaging that is easily used in projects. This time they have flags you cut out and use. Clever. Very clever. These flags actually came off the packaging for the canvas pieces.
I had a whole lot of fun with this layout. I'm in the zone at the moment. On one hand I am enjoying my Project Life more than ever, (getting the story told) and on the other hand I'm getting even more Dimensional and more creative with my layouts. Story telling vs creative. So glad to have found a happy medium. Being in a happy creative zone is always a bonus, right?
