Feeling Artsy

I don't think "artsy" is a word, but I'm using it anyway.  I enjoy trying different techniques for my scrapbook layouts.  Sometimes I like clean and graphic layouts and sometimes I want to go for a more messy, creative look (a.k.a. "artsy").  I have been following Missy Whidden's blog ( and love her designs.  This is my version of her style:

Watercoloring the background (with the "smoosh" technique - paint some leftover plastic packaging and "smoosh" it onto your background), stenciling, stamping, layering papers and adding lots of embellishments - so fun to make!  Sometimes getting messy helps get the creative process going.  So if you haven't gotten your fingers inky or your desk splattered with a little paint recently - give it a try.  Go ahead and get a little "artsy" - haha.

Hope you can get messy today!
