A bit messy ...

So, the story goes like this:
At Christmas time, we spent some time with my brother and his family.  It was a special time.  We loved it!  Did I mention that my sister-in-law is the very lovely Melinda??  And for a while now, she's been promising to teach me some of her 'messy' style of scrapping :-) :-).  I was soooo looking forward to it!!

And ...

it really was sooo much fun :-).  Seriously!!  I have a new love:  texture paste :-)

Check out the first page I created with {lots of} help from Melinda:

It was my first time playing with texture paste ... such a fun effect!

 
 
And certainly the first time I'd ever done that much distressing!! LOL
I was still able to stick to my 'usual' clustering and a bit of white space :-).  And I just love the sequins.  A must have for me, now! ;-) ...

I created a total of 3 pages while on holidays!  I can't wait to share the rest with you :-).  What do you think?  Have you tried something different from your 'usual' style?

Thanks for visiting, have a great weekend :-)

So are you addicted to texture paste and messy now....lol. Your page is just divine.
And I never knew you and Melinda were sister-in-laws. Lucky both of you have that creative sisterhood.
