Some things are scary...

But you have to hedge your bets and take a chance because it may work out in the end.
This is referring to two things the first small and the second BIG.

I did a layout that was inspired by the series on Two Peas called 213 in 2013 the techniques that were used were to start with a blank slate, get messy with mists, forget your paper trimmer and use some wash (washi was the easy part). I had had a bit of a weird day so I let all my scrapbooking sense fly out the window and just sat at my desk and did whatever the darn I felt like. At first this was scary because what if it didn't turn out right? But I kept going and this is what I came up with, it's not my usual style but it doesn't matter because I had fun.


Now the BIG scary thing. As some of you know I am a graphic designer and obviously I love scrapbooking, but I am at a time in my life where I need something to focus on, work on but I want to do something I love too enter onto the scene...
Life. Paper. Scrapbook. is a new project and quite a massive undertaking for me. It is a new blog and online magazine showcasing scrapbookers from both Australia and around the world. I don't know if it will work out the way I hope, I don't know if it will be well received but I do know I have to take a chance because life goes on and you either move with it or stay where you are and I want to/need to keep moving. So please head over to the blog, we are currently looking for DT and also for submissions for the first issue.
