As new products roll in, I am so very anxious to try them all. There is not enough time to do everything I want to do or as quickly as I want to have them done. The kids are on spring break right now. Even though I am home for the day, my eyes are constantly being drawn to the clock thinking about the upcoming meal that I must prepare for them! Why must work of every sort interfere with creative time?!
I just finished this layout and braved the 20 degree weather outside to have the picture taken in relative daylight for a change! I combined a couple of brand new collections by Jillibean Soup: Irish Farm House Soup and Peeled Cucumber Soup. The only thing better than these two soups would be for Jillibean to come and make them for our lunches! I don't know how to describe it but the current trend of colors on the market tend toward a bit of hazy bright or muted bright? If only I understand art and/or color more, perhaps I would be more accurate in my description. No matter, these colors, me liketh.
I also used a brand new stencil from the Crafters Workshop called Subway art. It has been a while since I did any misting on my page so I was a bit scared. The page sat under a pile of heavy stuff after I did the misting to reduce the potential warping of my paper. This is another resolution I must make: to use my stencils and mist collections, to experiment more even if things don't turn out in the end.
Now it is time to think about what to make for lunch...
