I had great plans after my day 1 post. I even made another layout based on one of the other sketches while I was waiting for my day 2 prompt to hit my inbox. But then disaster struck ... in the form of food poisoning. YUK! Needless to say I didn't do anything yesterday :-)
But I am back at it today and I have just finished a layout for the day 2 prompt. I will photograph it later when there is light. So now onto day 3 and I have discovered a HUGE gap in my patterned paper collection. Did you know that I have hardly any tone on tone or small repeat patterns in my stash??????? It seems that I love patterns in all their glory along with plain cardstock. The two extremes. Day three is going to take me a while just to get organised enough to have the sheets of patterned papers required!!!!!
I am looking forward to seeing what I find, but this prompt will probably have to wait until my day off next week. Maybe I should consider rearranging my stash. I tend to keep collections together until there is hardly any left and then they go in the scrap-box according to their dominant colour. Maybe I should just file all the papers I buy according to colour too. Then it would be nice and easy to pull out 8 sheets of co-ordinating colour!!! Do you have any suggestions? Have you found a productive way of storing your full sheets? Strangely enough I stored them by colour when I first started 'collecting' papers. After I became familiar with companies and bought whole collections, I changed how I stored them.
Stay tuned until next week for the results of this prompt :-) I wonder if the missing type of patterned paper is part of the reason I often fiddle with a single page for hours trying to 'fix' my layout. That could be what my eye is searching for .... hmmmmm .... will have to think on that!
