Finished scrapbooking layout for Day 6. My boy in Puerto Madryn. He´s about five years old in that picture. He loooooooved trains at that age.
I had the scraps laying around for a while. A page started to form. "Too simple", said my Inner Critic. My page now felt *not enough*. "You sure you don´t want to keep that scrap for later?", she has a way of stirring fear into me. "What if the *perfect* photo turns up later?" ~scarcity thoughts are another gift of hers~
In Quinn McDonald´s next book "The Inner Hero Art Journal: mixed media messages to Your Inner Critic" I´ll learn how to face my Inner Critic and get help from my Inner Hero. I´m sooooooo waiting by the door for it to arrive in December!
By now what I did was this: I took several circles from the patterned paper where the picture would be (sometimes scarcity can be turned into resourcefulness) and added them to balance the lines and add some pretties. Some alpha stickers did the rest of the job.
