I've been playing along with some of Lori's challenges over at the Apron Strings blog, and today's challenge was to give yourself permission to do something you haven't before. I chose to do a few things that I don't normally do on my layouts -
1.) I used a picture of myself that I do not particularly like because it is means a lot to me.
2.) I used a color that I virtually never use in any of my crafting endeavors: Purple
3.) I employed some techniques and a style that I love (shabby/vintage), but have never been able to pull off to my satisfaction.
4.) I wrote my journaling out by hand.
Basically I gave myself permission to create a layout that I knew I probably wouldn't be happy with; and I am also giving myself permission to get this picture reprinted so that I can redo this page.
