Lazy Days and Sundays

I had the fortune to scrap at my leisure last Monday because it was a holiday. I took a sketch from Becky Fleck’s Pagemaps book and used it for the base design. With the difficult part out of the way, I decided to play, and try my hand at collage and layering. I was having so much fun I thought, “heck, why not layer the title as well.”

I must admit, my Clip It Up really came in handy in this simple exercise. Since I have all my embellishments within reach, it was a breeze mixing and matching assorted brands for my collage work. All I had to do was think of a color that would suit a spot, flip through the revolving rack and presto! In fact, when I counted the number of embellishments I used for this layout, there were at least eleven different lines of various brands and I am so happy how well they came together.

Journaling Reads:
Me, lounging in the lanai with my feet up.
My eyeglasses perched almost at the tip of my nose.
A good book nested comfortably on my hands.
And you, sitting on my lap doing your own thing.
