Amazing and Cool

this layout makes use of the "tiptoe" position meaning the position of the layout is not uniform. notice the mixture of slant and straight alignment of the layout.

inspirational board

this is an inspirational board i did during the application for a DT slot at artzdescrap.

i used various scraps and other embellishments for this board. this board serves as my inspiration...i use them mostly for scrapping my layouts like pics of my kids, stickers, chipboards, stamping, buttons, flowers, fibers, markers

you can display this kind of board when you scrap so that this will serve not only as an inspiration but also as an idea-"inputer" as well.
