When I joined the team I had just come back into scrapping after an enforced break due to major building work in our home. It took me a while to find my feet and embrace the more messy style of being a Punky Rebel. I think you could probably describe my style back then as 'safe'. I love love love my more messier layouts now and it isn't very often I do one that doesn't include paint or mist somewhere.
This layout is one I sent for my application and is still one of my favourites. It is as messy as it got back then. Not a splodge of paint or spray of ink in sight.
my first few dt layouts were back to the more safe style as you can see by these two
this one is slightly messier because I used a painted border.
It was only when I did a lot of experimenting on this layout below that I embraced the messiness of paints and mists.
I've made tons of mistakes along the way and had to cover up some awful splodges with embellishments but I can't see me going back to 'safe' scrapping anytime soon.
These are my last two dt layouts.
I'm looking forward to the future with Punky Scraps. Nat has some fab challenges planned and you won't want to miss the special December one we have coming up.
