Im okay with that, partly because this is just a creative outlet so there are no rules or deadlines and I dont want to force it...I'll end up just not enjoying myself!
Next time I try this I think I'll do it in a deep cardboard box then and only then might I not get black paint on my floor, my clothes and furniture haha...
I also printed out the free New year printable from
The Secret Owl society
cut it up and made my layout!
For my next layout,
I used a magazine clipping that I've had for ages...I love the pale to smoky Gray shades and thought they looked so beautiful in floral - who said Gray was boring??
I added a cute quote sticker and collaged some more black and white papers...I added a punch of colour with the die-cut, I love the Victorian era feel about it...a little dark and moody but also beautiful at the same time!
