And just like that, I've totally lost all creative inspiration. I finally have some time to make stuff and I feel stuck. I keep walking into my craft room, looking around, and walking right back out. I haven't painted in over a month and I hurriedly scrapped this Scrap Our Stash DT layout last week with little motivation. Thankfully, I'm starting an online painting class with Kelly Rae Roberts in October and I have a painting/yoga retreat with Flora Bowley in November. I've been eagerly awaiting both and I hope it jumpstarts my creative energy.
The second September challenge for Scrap Our Stash includes the following sketch and instructions to use 3 or more school supplies in your layout. I made a pretty straight forward layout and I incorporated stars, staples, paper clip, lined paper, and tape.
I'm sharing my design team layout for this month's Scrap Our Stash challenge. I've been traveling a lot and had so little time to scrap or paint. I whipped this one out quickly in-between trips. I am missing this creative release in a big way and can't wait to get back into my craft room. I have so many quilting, scrapping, and painting ideas swirling around in my brain.
I scrapped a set of selfie photos from my trip to Hawaii in May. I used spray inks applied with a paint brush to add color to the black and white background. Here's some other goodies that I used from my stash:
L: Label, A: American Craft Ephemera, Y: Yellow Ink, E: Enamel Dots, R: Rounded Corner Tool, S: Stickers
Here's some close-ups!
