Reflecting on LOAD
I'm not going to lie, it was HARD at times and kept me up until late at night many days. But... I also really enjoyed it and have a whole album of LO's to show for it. As a matter of fact, I've already signed up for the next edition in September, courtesy of Big Picture Classes, called 'the Mother LOAD'.
What else did I take away from this?
- Though I usually only do double-page spreads, I actually did a lot of single page LO's during this challenge. Turns out I LIKE doing them. Who knew??
- I seem to have a preference for (off) white backgrounds lately: 12 out of the 31 LO's have either a white or off-white base.
- I stepped outside my comfort zone a few time using new techniques. I really liked the creative process.
- At the same time I stayed true to my 'tried and tested'-methods: using sketches (I couldn't scrap without them!), distressing edges (with ink or distressing tool), stamping, handwritten journaling (I'm too lazy to type...), alpha stickers...
- Even though it was hard setting aside time every day to make a LO, it was also really relaxing spending time at something I enjoy doing.
- I scapped a lot of pictures that have been on my 'when-I-get-around-to-it'-pile for a long time. I'm glad they finally made it to my albums!
I can't wait until September for the next round!
