"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 use.....an 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 is...it was fun to create!!

Thanks for popping by, Eb xx

So lovely to see you "back" Ebony. Your LO's are amazing. You were the first person in the "Scrapbook World" to inspire me, (with your gorgeous kits and sharing LO's on your blog), and I am sure you will continue to do so. In all my LO's I see a little Ebony touch there somewhere!! Have a great weekend. Wendy xo

I love your current style, Eb. It's one I try hard to do myself but can never seem to pull together as well as you do. Glad to hear you've found something to make you happy again.

Hi! well whatever style you call it... i just love it!! i think scrapping is an expression of our self, and as we are always in a state of change..
