So taking on my "Big Girl Pants" I jumped in and took out a pill of papers. I wanted to have the same size so I went with 10*15 cm (6*4 inches) because I have photo-pockets that size. I just went with it without thinking too much, just gluing it down.
The first one I keep simple with allot of elements cut out of Graphic 45 papers.
video and here we can talk about layers. papers from Graphic 45, Magnolia, DCWV & My Minds Eye. You can see how I put this together from cutting up the papers to cover the lamp with glossy accents.
I hope this gave you some inspiration to get started with your scrap. Now when I don´t know what to do I get start on a new tag with the papers laying on my desk or taking up some from the drawer. I feel better knowing that I use the papers even though the tags might not be the best looking ever...
