How do I scrap?

1) I can only scrap when my table is clean and organised. Clutter tends to frustrate me and I would feel that I am not able to find anything in the mess.

2) A ready list of supplies and papers would have been selected before any creative process starts. I dont like to dig for stuff once I start creating so I would rather do the 'tough hunting work' before than after.

3) A basket filled with scrap papers and leftover embellishments are placed right in front of me so that I forced myself to try and use them. 

4) My handy tools of punches, adhesives, pens and scissors are always placed right next to me. 

5) I only scrap in blocks of 15 minutes. I can never sit down for a full 2 hours to complete a layout. It is just not me. I tend to take breaks, long breaks and that helps me to reorganise my thoughts. Each layout I complete tends to take about 2 days in total.

A peek into my room...


CSI #58 is now open. Be sure to check out this week's challenge. With the addition of our talented Em Straface, each month we will have a sketch to follow too. 

I followed mostly to what the sketch looked like. I didnt want it to be a multi-photo layout so I decided to use polaroid patterned papers instead. The focal point was on the pictures so embellishments were centralised also. I love the more simple aspect of this layout. 


Be sure to be back tomorrow as we open Life.Paper.Scrapbook Feb Colour Challenge. I will be sharing more about the challenge tomorrow and how I cracked it. (:

I can't scrap on a messy desk either. In fact, I cleaned while I I just can't bear to see the stuff lying around my desk and it kinda block my creative mind :) Love your layout!
