Design Team Member Mary Pat submitted this layout for the August Re-Do Challenge. She said:
How has your style evolved? I started out very clean and simple over 10 years ago and I would have to say my style is still the same. Now there are changes of course in my style. I know that the challenge was ment to be a re-do, but I have never redone any of my layouts. Why??? I love ALL my layouts the way they are. I appreciate my style back then and I would never change anything because I made them with love. Does that make sense? So therefore I have picked 2 layouts which demonstrate my style from 8 years ago and my style today.
My first layout is very clean and simple. This layout was done 8 years ago. Back then I did not use pattern paper. Most of my layouts were made just from cardstock. Occasionally I would add a touch of pattern paper. I also mainly used brads as my way of embellishing.
This is my hubby and I at a road side store in Spain sticking our heads through cut outs!! I love this picture of us.
Now today I LOVE pattern paper. I can't get enough of it. For this layout I used several differnt pieces from the collection. Again I still have a very clean and simple style. All that is changed really is the use of pattern paper.
Now of course I did get a little fancier with the use of my Silhouette for the title, but the lines are still clean and simple.
Now it's your turn to take the August Re-do Challenge. See all the details HERE!

Great then and now layouts and love the description of how your style has evolvedReplyDelete
It's amazing what a little patterned paper can do! It would be a challenge for me NOT to use it! I like your clean-line style! Great twist on the challenge!ReplyDelete
Very nice work. Love seeing how style evolves over time!!ReplyDelete
It's fun to see the changes. I think it's aloes interesting in how the changes in the products available to use have changed the way our pages look. Great pages...both of them!!!ReplyDelete
I love how your style has stayed the same - but yet changed so drastically. Great use of PP - it really does add a lot to a layout.ReplyDelete
