One of the scrap projects I've been doing is weekly Project Life. That's a two page layout (usually) per week in 2014. I haven't been working in particular order, which is why a planner comes in so handy for PL. I plan to go back and (using my blog, Facebook, Instagram, and calendar) reconstruct 2013 as well. It was a big year for us and deserves to be documented.
One of the techniques that I enjoy using is transparency printing. I love the texture it provides to pages.
And paint. Have I mentioned paint? I lovvvvvveee me some paint.
