I got my layout done for the Studio Calico weekly challenge today!
I really had a blast doing this. I tried all kinds of new things. Never in the past would I have combined so many patterned papers on one layout. Neither would I cover up the patters as much as I did, but I've been inspired by the girls over at Studio Calico! They do so many things on a single page, and it doesn't overwhelm the page. It is fun!
Oh, I also learned if you have something in your head, and no one makes the paper you want, make it yourself! The Yellow Chevron paper was something I wanted, but I couldn't find what I was looking for. I searched online, and I found a small chevron pattern image online. I placed it over and over again on a blank image. Then I printed that image out as a 5x7 picture. It is pretty neat to be able to add something to a page that is in your mind but not out in stores.
On other news, I went to IKEA today! I LOVE IKEA. It is an organizers dream come true!!! I went with a purpose- to obtain this.
I have been overhauling my art room since my hubby got me a set of map drawers to use as storage. This little baby will hold my albums, I hope. It is assembled, but I haven't filled it yet. It is still exciting. I bought several other items at IKEA to spruce up my art room. (Photos will follow the completion of the overhaul!) I'm excited to get my art room finished!!
