New Year´s Resolution

Anne Pennington suggested in one of her comments to one of my layouts that I visit the Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge blog for another challenge (thank you Anne!). The challenge was really a challenge, I thought, no sketch, just a theme “New Year’s Resolutions”. How was I going to put that on a layout? Luckily my daughter asked me to do some crafts yesterday morning, so I took out watercolors, brushes, scissors, and a few more things and we started to be creative. This is what I call an abstract layout, which worked well for me because I wasn’t planning on using any photos … I recorded some of the steps for the layout which I am sharing with you here.

En un comentario en mi blog Anne Pennington surgerió que visitara el Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge blog con otro challenge (gracias Anne!). El challenge era un challenge real para mi, simplemente un tema “Resoluciones para el año nuevo”, ningna plantilla. ¿Cómo iba a crear un layout para esto? Por suerte, mi hija quizo hacer manualidades ayer, así cogí tijeras, aquarelas, pinceles, y otras cosas y empezamos a ser creativas. Mi layout es un layout abstracto, que me sirvió bien porque no pensaba usar fotos ... pero saqué unas fotos en el proceso de crear el layout que voy a compartir con vosotras abajo.

In einem Kommentar auf meinem Blog schlug Anne Pennington vor, doch mal folgenden Blog zu besuchen, auf dem es auch Challenges gibt Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge (Danke, Anne). Diese Challenge war eine wirkliche Herausforderung für mich, einfach nur ein Thema „Neujahrsvorsätze“, kein Sketch, ... Wie sollte ich dieses Thema umsetzten? Zum Glück kam meine Tochter zur Hilfe, die gestern unbedingt etwas Kreatives machen wollte. So holte ich Schere, Pinsel, Malkasten und ein paar andere Dinge und wir begannen, kreativ zu werden. Mein Layout ist etwas abstrakt, aber perfekt dafür geeignet, ohne Fotos auszukommen. Ich habe zwischendurch mal einige Fotos gemacht, die ich euch hier auch zeigen werde.

Step by Step:)
