Scrap Art Layout

Hello Hello

How is you? I's just fine!
Thanks for stopping in today, I wanted to share with you a layout I did about a year ago to document my scrap hobby. This particular layout is actually really simple there isn't a whole lot going on but I think that it conveys the message well enough.
This layout was also the first time that I worked with kraft cardstock - after all the rage I had to give it a go and well I really like working with it now when I use to not like it one bit. It is a very neutral back drop for lots of color but has enough depth to provide the weight needed to support lighter color pallets as well.
And lastly I had also decided to try a different kind of pattern paper (more so because of the kraft card stock I chose). Using the printed material to my advantage I made sure not to cover up the parts I wanted to use to tell my story. I really enjoyed not having to stamp up some journal cards because it was all already right there even though I was a bit nervous that I was going to screw up my spelling or something...all ended up well so take from this what you may and try using some of your other pattern papers, the ones you've been sitting on for a while and give one photo with lots of journaling a try...you might find that you are okay with it just as I did.
