"I'm not messy, I'm creative" 12x12 layout!

Hey there everyone!

I have been working on this project for Jade from jadedstudios on YouTube (YT). It is a beautiful vintage 12x12 Graphic 45 layout and the cool thing is that it's sitting on a sheet of thin metal/tin! I've never used it before but saw some samples of LO at my LSS (local scrapbook store). It is magnetic, but I didn't use it for that, I added a funny little saying on it, "I'm not messy, I'm creative". So, it's a wall hanging! I used some of my wide gorgeous black lace to hold it up with a big bow, so if Jade wants to hang it up she could, or stuff it in a drawer:) lol....I used different elements and vintage things, faux treatments and I love it! I really am proud of myself, that I have grown and don't feel stressed that it takes me a bit to create something, I'll get better,   I will.

So here are some pics of it, I hope it inspires one or all who see it, to feel confident in themselves to create whatever is in their heart! I do get my inspiration from things I've seen and things I've made and things that surround me! YT is a big one and then my mags (magazines) are another. Somerset is my most favorite mag! I will be in there one day! I want to see that my creations are good enough to be featured in a magazine, so one day! I want to encourage everyone, to "Go for it"! If you want to try something, do it! I will share my older layouts to show what I've done before. I didn't have much then but they are mine! 

So be encouraged and inspired to "Go for it"!  Here are the pics from the LO I made for Jade! I hope she loves it and hope you do too! Please leave me a comment and or feedback! Thank you!!
My hands are up, cuz I know, we know, that we're not messy but creative, right? haha...I will just tell myself that! haha Here is the video for this project!
