Reflecting On My Scrappy 2016

(Make sure you read to the end!)

As December winds down, I found myself reviewing my Faithbooking project from 2016. As I did, I noticed quite strikingly, that my style throughout the project changed several times. I started out excited about doodling with my Bamboo Spark. At some point, I moved on to watercolors, both real and digital. But I finished up my project with a more “traditional” digital scrapbooking style. Here’s a look at the evolution of my pages.

Supplies: Sherwood Studio, Jen Maddocks and Studio Wendy Faithbooking products. (Faithbooking eBook available at Scrapbookgraphics.)

I realized that although I enjoyed trying new things in this project, I really loved the pages I did digi-scrap style. It took me back to my scrappy roots and my natural love. I was happiest both creating these pages and with the result. So, as I look forward to 2017, I want to refocus on my favorite hobby. There’s definitely value in stepping out of our comfort zone and trying something new. But when it comes down to making decisions for my 2017 projects, I want to do what I truly love. So it’s back to digi kits for me!
