No longer just a craft.
Yesterday I was going through a bunch of the snaps I've taken of my LO's, and one of my favourites is this one. It was one of the ones I created for a Scrapshotz contest called, Hot Shotz. They gave us an inspirational piece and this was the end result.
I used a bunch of my circle punches and my circle cutters, and layered some over others, but didn't center them over each other. I was pleased with the result because for a LO that only took minutes to prepare, the simplicity is what made it stunning. I think this was the first time I decided that scrapbooking was not only a method to keep memories alive or a craft, it had elevated scrapbooking to and art form. Ok, I got deep there for a minute!
Anyhow, the point I was going to make with this LO, is that you can use your punches and cutters for striking LO's, and it's easy. Here's another one where I used my punch for a border all the way around the picture. So dig out those punches and get creative.
