Yes, thank God it's Friday! For some reason, this week has taken it's toll on me. I'm wasted. I've never been this tired in my entire life! It was such a relief getting home from work this afternoon, packing up the car and heading out to the farmhouse. And now I'm sitting here, in front of a crackling fire in the old tile stove, feeling completely relaxed. The kids are upstairs in bed, P is snoring on the couch, and I finally felt inspired to do some blogging.
I made a completely flat layout the other day. It's for a challenge at Scrapptorget, where they wanted you to make a completely flat layout. No layers, no embellishments, nothing. The thing is... I really love layers, and I love 3D-elements on my layouts, so here I had to retink everything.
I printed the photo plus the title directly onto the cardstock, and then I got busy with stamps, masks, ink and pens. And that's about it. As you can see, it's completely flat. I haven't glued anything on there.
It's good to do things differently once in a while. Making this layout really got me thinking about making more of this. I really like how it turned out, and I will most definitely be making more flat layouts. I also think the photo looks gorgeous, printed straight onto the cardstock.
Well, that's all I have to share tonight, I'm afraid. I did, however, bring my external harddrive from home, with a few scrappy pics on it (I'm on my job laptop here at the farm, with no photoshop or any other photo editing software) so don't be surprised if there will be another update or two here on the blog over the weekend.
Happy Friday, everyone!
