"Ecclectic Grunge...."

I think thats how i will descibe my scrappy style right now! I never really have been able to describe my style but lately this is the style I have been creating! And finally Im loving my scrappin again!!! A few months ago I  could quite easily have given up scrapping....and thats a big call from me as scrapping is and has been a huge part of my life and who I am. But lately I have been re inventing my style and am loving the process. It may not be everyone's cup of tea (LOL that's for you Vikki!!!!) but its what I am enjoying. Lots of paint, mists, mess and grabbing whatever I can find to ecclectic group of things.
Some of these layouts I created at a layout a few weeks back and really I was still at that stage where scrapping wasnt really doing it for me so I like one or two of these but I have creating layouts this week that are more true to me (some i cant show yet!)

Yesterday I created this layout for the Scrap the Girls challenge. It was a color combo challenge using white, black, hot pink and pale pink. I have to admit these colors were hard for me. I wanted to add a dash of aqua or some yellow!!! Not good with same colors!!! But here it was fun to create!!

Thanks for popping by, Eb xx
