What do you consider the hardest part of scrapping?
Is it selecting the right photo?
Is it picking the papers out?
Is it finding the right embellies?
Is it coming up with a design?
Is it something else?
What is your nemesis????July 18, 2010 at 12:18 pm #23939July 18, 2010 at 12:21 pm #23941
My problen is find the right photo! I usually come up with the design after I decide on the papers!! After I decide on the papers, I MAKE the embellies I want work on them. THEN I look for the right photo! I know…I'm bassakwards!!July 18, 2010 at 12:22 pm #23942
Getting the right picture…I have an issue with color photos…they are hard to match…I know you really do not have to match them to the paper but I cannot seem to let go of that notion.July 18, 2010 at 12:28 pm #23943
Being different. 🙂
You got that right Lisa!! I am always trying to come up with something original! lol!!! People say I KNEW that was yours!! or I could recognize YOUR layouts anywhere! To me that means that I am in a rut and they all have the same quality about them! I would love for someone to say WOW!!! Did YOU do this??? INCREDIBLE!! lol!! Then I would know I have accomplished it!!!!July 18, 2010 at 12:52 pm #23944
Mine is trying not to make all the lo look the same or very similar…..I seem to get on a kick and make several lo very similar BUT with the swirlydoos creative members, I'm getting a lot more inspiration,..Thanks, Ladies.July 18, 2010 at 1:16 pm #23945
I've been selecting the photos after my kit arrives and I sort through the pp.
Then I figure out a rough design in my head and then select the pp, play with that and come up with a semi-final design, play around some more.
Then I commit with trimmer and scissors, arrange and rearrange, and finally play pick and choose with embellies.
Like Lisa, I try to be different with each layout, I think that's what slows me down.July 18, 2010 at 1:50 pm #23946
Not just being different from layout to layout but from everyone else as well. I like to use the techniques others teach us but don't want my layouts to be a copy of theirs. I try to take what I lea and apply it in a different way so it's not a copy of say Robins or Lisa's or Gabi's or Tina's kwim? And I also like to take on challenges way out of my comfort zone. I just did a goth one for the Darker Side challenge over at sb. That was a tough one! LOLJuly 18, 2010 at 2:08 pm #23947

that's the hardest for me…July 18, 2010 at 2:09 pm #23948
I pick my photos first and then the paper. getting just the right paper drives me nuts!!!!July 18, 2010 at 2:18 pm #23949

Really???? But you are GREAT at that!!!!July 18, 2010 at 2:19 pm #23940July 18, 2010 at 2:20 pm #23950
For me, it the embellishments…. or 'finishing'…… I can get the design, and the photo…. and put it together…. but I think it the embellies that make or break a LO…. or make it stand out….. so that's where I put most of 'angst' or attention….. 🙂July 18, 2010 at 2:23 pm #23951
The hardest part for me is coming up with a design. Then I pick my papers and find a matching photo, or I have a photo I wanna scrap and try to find the right papers for it. Once I have laid down my papers and photo, the fun part starts: getting the right embellishments. I always try to incorporate a few fun techniques. I don't necessarily try to be different, but I love it when my work inspires other people to try something new.July 18, 2010 at 2:30 pm #23952
Robin, I fell the opposite about recognition, I like when ppl say they knew it was mine, it looks like I did it. I want it to have my stamp on it!
I think for me it is different with some layouts. I don't really have ONE thing that sticks me more. Sometimes, I have an idea, but no pic, sometimes a pic and no ideas, sometimes all ideas and no time!
