What is it that makes our mojo disappear? To follow that up, what did I do to make it return? If only I knew I could bottle it and make scrapbookers, cardmakers, artists and musicians around the world happy. Mine went missing before Christmas but seems to have come back over the last couple of weeks. Great but I don't have enough hours in my day to keep it happy.
I think one of the reasons that it came back was that I kept checking out my favourite blogs to find out what everybody else was doing. I then found a couple of sketches that I loved (see previous 2 posts) and bang there it was again. Hello Mojo!
Another blog I visit regularly is Shimelle's, I love how she de-complicates (is that a word?) scrapbooking. One post that caught my eye was about using getting the most out of supplies, see it here. The 4th layout/example caught my eye because here was a whole sheet of patterned paper, not cut into just there in all its glory. How many times do we not use paper because we don't want to cut it? As long as it doesn't overshadow the focus of the picture why not? So I did, and here it is
I didn't have a photo to use on one of my really fancy papers that I'm saving for something 'special' but I had to do the page now! My brother is very pleased with it and this is one of his favourite photos of him and the boys. So everybody is happy all round.
