Do - Challenge YOUrself

Sorry for the delay getting this post out.  I was having trouble with my browser.  Sometimes, technology just gets the best of me...

I really enjoyed this challenge at Challenge YOUrself.  I'm really pushed out of my comfort zone with these challenges.  It's not just the photos of myself that get me, but I really have to put some thought into what I'm going to put on my page.  I'm loving it because I think it's bringing my scrapbooking to the next level.

Make sure to make time this month for this challenge!

Challenge #2: One Little Word
Chose a word that you will focus on and reflect upon all through the year and create a layout that celebrates your chosen word.  

Here is my take on the challenge...

I loved the way this page turned out.  I've always seemed to struggle with layering in the past, but I have to admit, that it's come a long way.

I started with a brick mask and modeling paste and then misted green and red over it while it was still wet.

Next, I started layering.  My goto spot is my scrap paper box.  I found this yummy green wood that I started with and the scrap with the circles punched out.  I really don't throw away much because you will never know when it will come in handy.

I had been thinking about my OLW for quite some time.  I love this concept and I had never heard about it before this challenge.

To be honest, I am the worst procrastinator, so by choosing the word "DO" is really going to be a change for me.

Thanks for stopping by!
