View Full Version : Is 'different' ok?
06-30-2006, 11:10 AM
I have done a few layouts with kits, but they always seem a bit too fussy for me. (I have never been a fussy kinda gal)
I do adore the kits, but I always seem to like my layouts more plain. Is that a bad thing?
This layout is very dark because of the 'sleeping' theme. Although it was taken during a daytime nap, I always think darkness when I think sleep.
Is it ok or should I just give up and go home now?! :rolleyes: :D
Please click here (http://www.digitalscrapbookplace.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=110216&cat=all&limit=last1) for my most recent layout.
ALL comments appreciated. I take criticism well.. (I think!!):p

well i think you've done a great job...it definitely is in the "graphic-style" area WTG.
I posted on your layout (which is beautiful). Just looks to me that you are a graphic type scrapper instead of a paper style. Nothin wrong with that! :D

Thankyou SO MUCH ladies!
You have no idea how much better I feel for your posts!
I guess its just that so many layouts I have seen are paper scrapbooking. I didn't know there were different types of scrapping :p
Paper effects with all the embellishments are beautiful though.. maybe one day I will be better at them!
Its nice to know that I'm on the right track :)
Thanks once again.

different is good, as Tina said it looks like you are more a graphic girl and dobegal has given you a link to andy who does amazing work, I'd say just do what feels good to you, cause its working :)

Do what makes you happy - that is my motto! Life would be pretty boring if we were all the same.

I really like your LO. I am in the same boat as you, I like to keep it simple. I am sometimes overwhelmed thinking I need to have layer upon layer of coordinating stuff but I am getting over it!

different is good! the digital scrapping world would be boring with all paper-style layouts! :D you might even fade and blend the text and go for a softer, dreamy feel. simple is good! :)
Definitely go with the style that makes your heart sing! Matters not a whit what you do - graphic, paper, crayon - if it tells your story and you love it - it's all gold!!
