Yesterday was the last day of the Layout a Day challenge run by Lain Ehmann, I’m happy to say I finished the month, with a page made every day.
The prompt for the day, since we usually all get sad about missing everyone once LOAD is over, was to document a book that made us cry.
Well, for me, that would be more like which books don’t make me cry? Seriously.
Since I could probably write a book about things that make me cry, I decided to use the printer for my journaling. And I was feeling a bit better, so was able to explore a little bit of my artsy side as well.
I went with some misting and enamel dots to suggest the idea of tears, and the doily shapes reminded me of handkerchiefs as well. Although this took longer (had to let the mist dry!) it’s still a super simple page.
One of the biggest benefits of doing LOAD is that you come to find your style. You figure out what works for you, and since you’re scrapbooking so regularly, you have time to experiment as well, which lets you add new things to your style as your tastes change over time.
LOAD is just plain awesome.
Also, you have things like this when you are done:
Doing LOAD makes you feel like you’ve accomplished things, and that’s a good thing. And, unlike laundry, these things stay done. That’s even better, don’t you think?
