When it’s time to put down the details and begin journaling, I move to my desk. It helps me zoom in on placements and get focused on my writing.
When it’s done- it feels awesome! The feeling of bringing this one little photo to life, and giving it my voice is so fulfilling- I think it’s why scrapping is so addictive! Endorphins baby!
While I definitely need to refill my mojo bucket by playing with paper and glue and scissors- I would never give up my digi scrapping! There is something almost fluid about dragging and dropping, easily re-sizing and being able to play with layers. I think you focus less on “mistakes” made during the process because they are so easy to fix- and you can experiment more with styles because once you have your supplies, they never run out. So you don’t have to worry about “wasting” an element by trying something new out. And- its a lot less dangerous drinking a latter right next to your layout!
Bottom line is that when the creative process is what brings you joy- you have to make time for yourself to do it. And whether your making a layout, organizing supplies, or even admiring layouts in a gallery- it feeds that need. Embrace it all. The baby steps as well as the final product!
