However, we scrapbookers can get so excited about the new trends, designs and techniques, that we can forget about we have done in "the past."
But that doesn't mean that those past trends, designs and techniques are not worth using again.
I am more of what you would probably call a traditional scrapbooker. I definitely follow the trends, but I normally don't do a lot of mixed media or time consuming artsy techniques.
But I really do like to play with paper. New paper. Old paper.
For this layout, I combine new with the old. There is some background stamping with an old stamp from Glitz Design and aging in the corners and sides of the card stock background paper with Antique Linen Distress Ink. I also brought out the flowers, gems and tickets you don't see too much on layouts lately. Adding new to the layout was paper from the My Mind's Eye "Fancy That" 6 x 6 paper pad.
