Picture Perfect

I admit it.

I am not one of those people who are current in their scrapbooks. I have photos I took a few days ago that are done and ones I took 10 years ago that are not. I have found, through trial and error, that it is best if I create what I feel like and what I am inspired by. To force myself to work in chronological order just leads to frustration and less-than-acceptable pages.

So, despite the warm temperatures, flowers and sunlight, I just finished a page about winter.

These papers are new from Bo Bunny — Doubledot Vintage. They come in many different colors and are perfect for times when you don’t want to work on plain cardstock, but do not want a busy pattern to compete with your photos, either. For that reason, I kept this page really simple. I used chipboard letters by Maya Road and Grungeboard letters for the title and painted them with the Pearl Metallic Paint Dabber. Although you can’t see it in the photo, it leaves a bumpy texture that goes perfectly.

So you see, I couldn’t have completed this page last November when I took the photos … Bo Bunny just released the perfect paper! It really is best to wait for inspiration.

  1. Love this page! I don’t like to scrap in order either. When I find the right papers for photos I have is when I do best. You do wonderful work when it all comes together for you! Don’t force yourself to scrap something that doesn’t feel right for you-wait till it does and you NEVER miss!!!
