It's been awhile...

Its been awhile since my last post. Between the family and I being poorly and not enough hours in the day the time has just flown by. I am of course late with everything this week but my head being the mush that it is lately moving fast is not an option at the moment. I am partaking in this challenge online called SYAO which stands for Scrap your XXX off. I'll let you fill in the blanks. We have to make a layout based on a sketch once a week and it must include items and techniques from their list. We have 1 week to make the layout or we are out of the running. Of course I am just making it by the skin of my teeth this week. I thought I would share my layout as I am really happy with the way it turned out and it incorporates some of my favorite things which is what our post is about on TIOT this week.

This week over at Try it on Tuesday we have announced our new DT members and they have all shared some of their favorite things in a project with you. We have also revamped the challenges and layout of the weeks so be sure to hop on over and check it out. We hope the new changes will help to optimize the fun in the challenges. Please do also check out the new DT member blogs they are looking forward to meeting you. Our new challenge will begin next week , we hope to see you there.

And now for some of my favorite things. I am showing off some of my favorite techniques and things to use. I love creating layout and other projects with photos. Prima flowers are a top on my list of favs although cost prohibits me from buying too many. Distressing is another love whether it is with inks or paper edging I just have to do it.
I love adding texture to my work with fabrics and laces and I am a pushover for quotes. I love collecting them. You never know when one might come in handy. My stamping has become another fav although hard to see here. I stamped the pattern making paper with music before adding it to the layout. Paints are fun too, I like adding a touch in some way to may layouts. I added some grey Dylusions paint with a credit card just to the right of the main collage.
And my final favorite is not a technique but my inspiration. My daughter. She is so beautiful and gives me some type of inspiration in life itself each day. whether it is a photo or from a conversation she is a very important part of my creativity.

Hope you enjoyed some of my fav's. Now if you head on over to the TIOT blog you can see some of my new teamies favs too. You can also follow the links on the sidebar to see some favorites of the rest of the team.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day. Angela
