Okies, mine is up - I'm really REALLY not sure if I like it too much or not. I've promised myself to do something totally different for my colours and styles this month - kind of trying to stretch myself to see what I can actually pull together if you know what I mean. Anyhoos - honest opinions please... is it ok or just a big mess of colour???

Looks Fab Treens.
I came across a blog the other day of a girl who does a similar style. Will look it up afters and send you the link if you don't already have it, can't remember her name off hand right now and about to go get the kids their showers. BBS

yeps got her Becci - she's AMAZING!!! if I had the talent she possesses in her little finger I think I'd be more than happy!!! I love the way she uses colour - I can dream ROFL she must have a HUGE budget, the amount of little things she adds!! I was going to make some little sculpy critters, but wanted to see if I was heading in the right direction kinda first... we'll see how time works out if I can add anything or play with it a bit more.. probably not, but there's always a next time if I'm game haha

I agree, Stacey Young's work is fabulous - I already follow her blog. No surprise she has landed this month's cover of SC! Ch 2 - Vicki's Technique Challenge - Page 2 Icon_wink
I do agree with what you say about budgets though Treens - I think my work would look very different if I could get my hands on more of what I wanted! Ch 2 - Vicki's Technique Challenge - Page 2 Icon_rolleyes

yeah - I think we need to go find someone's money tree and transplant it into our backyards Wink or at least take a cutting and drench it in seasol to make sure it survives and grows ROFL

Oh a money tree yes please. Just a cutting would do here.

Staceys stuffs gorgeous but not my style, don't think I could pull that style off myself. But have become intrigued by the little things she pops on to a page. Would never have though of even half of them myself.

For those of you that saw my blog a couple of weeks ago...I have only one thing to say "unlimited wishes"...LOL

I am the same Becci - I LOVE it, but dont think I could pull it off either. Well, depends on how much "stuff" I had though... Ch 2 - Vicki's Technique Challenge - Page 2 Icon_wink

and have you noticed in all her layouts that really stand out is that she only utilises 2 colours.. it's blue and orange, pink and line.. I think that's one of the big things she works well - and also where a HUGE stash would help... no where near that - actually I'm pretty much all out of blue embies now and I had nothing compared to what Stacey puts on her LO's!!!

yep - her use of colour is always fabulous! Ch 2 - Vicki's Technique Challenge - Page 2 Icon_biggrin but I am with you - I have nowhere near the amount of embellishments you would need to be able to scrap this style all the time.

I've just gone back to her blog - the detail is amazing, but nope, no where near enough embies hahaha I guess being a member of a LOT of DT's helps to Wink **sigh** I can dream... actually, better not talk of dreaming too much or I might fall asleep ROFL back to beading little 8 legged critters and spying on everyone here mwahahaha

I think Stacey Youngs' style is a bit to much for my liking, Yes, she uses lot of bright colours which is great, but I think she over embellishes her layouts, you seem to notice them first, & it really takes it away from the actual photo & what the layout is all about.( I know I'll be shot down for this opinion). But I believe scrapbooking is preserving the memories not about how much you can stick on a page. Scrap

I agree Joy!! I find when i look at her layouts i can't find the title or journalling around all the embellies, let alone the photo!! Smile Good on her for doing it like that, but definately not my style!! Smile

lol! what a relief, that someone else agrees with me, I agree about "good on her for doing it like that", it's not my style either.
Oh, & Vicki, great LO & boy page, I find boy pages really frustrating to do

Lol Joy you're not alone. It is a bit too much for me, but am in awe a little of it. Gives me great ideas as to what to put on a LO.
The recording of memories is what's important to me. Guess I look at her stuff more like art
