Yeah I know...it's a little bit out there!!!

Hi girls, Let's see if I can I get through this post without pressing delete!! So...Just dropping by to share a layout I have done for the #170 sketch challenge at Skissedilla. I have been stalking this site for ages wanting to enter but have always chickened out as the quality of entries is phenomenal and didn't want to embarrass myself. Well I figure what the hell...so here it is..







So yeah..it's weird. You are forgiven for having a little what the ??? moment. See I actually do A LOT of mixed media layouts like this. I just don't ever share them. Various reasons I suppose...they are designed purely for me and aren't really mass consumption and secondly, most tend to be personal and I'm generally not a 'put it all out there to strangers' kinda girl. Thing is...I just love this kind of creating. It feels like 'creating'. Not just gluing down things that other people have designed. Does that make sense? And the other reason I love mixed media is you can make it cryptic. You can lay every emotion and thought completely bare on your page but you are the only one that knows exactly what that is. Like art it is not literal and is completely open to interpretation. And that is the theme of my layout. Communicating without the need for words..and yes me as the Mad Hatter representing my 'out there' side =) And for my inner cheap skate...this whole layout is just white cardstock, a few vintage book pages with stamps, mists, inks, pens and mediums! 

 I promise I will be back soon with something a little more regular lol.

Happy Scrapping xox
