I've come up with a new category for many of my scrapbook layouts these days: "good enough". That means they are not a design team assignment, and likely will not be seen in any online galleries. It's more about the photos and story, but I also like the way it looks. No overthinking the process whatsoever. Like this layout I finished yesterday morning.
Now, I did give the page SOME thought. There's a Half and Half design foundation. I've got Color, Pattern, Texture and Shine. (thanks to this article by Lisa Dickinson) And a visual triangle of silver. But still no overthinking. I'll put this in an album and move on to the next layout.
I've been doing lots more "good enough" scrapbook layouts lately. And I love it.
