I try to keep up with things. My Mojo has gone AWOL since....about May? of last year maybe??
I've been trying to scrap things. I've done some pages (YES I HAVE). and of course Lynn likes to keep me updated on scrappy things, sometimes daily in fact, so that I don't feel out of the loop. I have appreciated that more and more as time without scrapping or crafting has drudged on. But then, suddenly, about a week and a half ago ---- BAM. We had a ManicMonday of scrapping at Scrap N Chat and it felt GOOD.
SO, with that goodness, I've been able to complete about six layouts! ANNNNNNNNNNNNNND...that brings me to the purpose of this post! A3C aka April's Artistic April Challenge circa 2014! My FOURTH YEAR of an artistic journal approach to the whole month of April. 2012 was kind of frightening (in that I bombed it, pretty much completely). Last year was awesome with a SmashBook *contented sigh*
THIS YEAR: Chipboard and Paint!!!
I had MULTIPLE versions of chipboard mini album kits. I think there were about five of them that I ripped out of their packaging to smash together for this book. and it felt GOOD. The "A" mini chipboard is Studio-G. The others are Colorbok albums (square, scalloped square and large circle).
The painting part made me SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO happy. (enough "O"s?? I think not). Some of it was MakingMemories...like a blast from the past going into that box, for sure.

THIS IS CRAZY!!!! Truthfully, the front cover and back cover aren't decorated yet. I've done enough "pages" for the inside, including cover page. However, I'm saving the front/back cover for later (taking after 2011 and 2013 respectively. Though come to think of it, there is no photo for 2013's completed covers. Brilliant blogging as usual April, brilliant)
SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO...until my next update with the A3C 2014 edtition *muah*
