Get It Scrapped: Unexpected Juxtapositions, Collage and Zentangle Techniques

I fell off the wagon again, but I have a really good excuse this time!  I have some big changes rumbling around in my world, all good ones and they are keeping me hop, hop, hopping!  So catching you up, I have traveled to both Indianapolis and Columbus, OH since last time I posted.  Copic classes are going well and I have another big trip all the way to Dallas coming up in a few weeks!  If you are in the area you need to check out the workshops HERE.  I would love to have you join me for coloring fun!

I have had three layouts post at Get It Scrapped and all ones that I love. Without a whole lot of explanation here they are with links to the wonderful articles that they are a part of.

Pretty self explanatory, beautiful girls, but OH so different.  Anyone who knows them knows just how much, the real beauty lies within though.  These two have the biggest, most caring hearts that rome this world.  To see the article at GIS click HERE.

The hardest part of this layout was fitting it all in.  There was a lot of resizing, citing and moving about the pages.  Check out the other layouts and inspiration HERE

Lastly is a layout including doodling!  Yay!  I love doodling as most of you know so if offered the job of adding it to a layout purposefully for an assignment I jumped at the chance.


Always Better by Michelle Houghton | Supplies: cardstock; Colorbok, doily; SEI, sticker letters, words, flair scallop frame, puffy sticker, brad and Washi tape; Freckled Fawn, sticker words and acrylic dots; My Mind’s Eye, ink; Sharpie, airbrush and ink; Copic

I did all of the doodling first and then masked off areas and airbrushed the background. My Copic ABS airbrush allowed me to quickly add color and pattern right on the same page that I had spent hours adding the detailed doodling.  Check out the other scrapbooker’s layouts for more great inspiration HERE.
