Solace

I've been playing with the new My Little Shoebox papers, and boy do I love them! This month I've been working with "Summer Breeze". I love its colors, they're just so refreshing. And another thing that I love is how versatile this line is to change up scrap styles.

In fact, the other night I was completely "done" and all I wanted to do was play with my scrap stuff and have some "me" time. And by "play" I mean literally play with the product. No overthinking, no stressing about a deadline or a dt call announcement. Just playing. And it was so liberating! And I guess you could say I found some solace when I was creating "Solace"! Ha! (sorry--I've gone without a lot of sleep lately)



I played with inks on this one. I found an old walnut stain dauber I've had forever, and decided to give it a go. So I stained the pp, the edges, some white ric rac, even gave it my first attempt at the droplets technique everybody seems to be doing now. All in all I had a lot of fun! And that's what creating is supposed to be about! And who knew MLS could be so shabby chic?!

Check back soon for more "Summer Breeze" layouts! I've been having so much fun with this darling little line! ;)
