    In creating the October M3 collection, we were not only inspired by a beautiful palette and our 3 words, but also this scrapbook layout Pinterest board that Jaimee put together. I absolutely LOVE every single one of them!

    You'll notice that the layouts on this board have a common style that I would define as a simple mess.

    Some common characteristics are:
    1 - There is generally a lot of white space, though the white space may be splattered or stained.
    2 - Photos are generally small, but there is at least one.
    3 - There is a definite use of mixed media, from traditional scrapbooking supplies to paint, stamps, doodles, ephemera...

    My challenge to you this week is to be inspired by a layout from this board and scraplift it using M3 products. You are welcome to seek inspiration from just one, or to be inspired by the general look of these layouts.


    Here's my layout, inspired by this general look.

    And here's another I found in the M3 gallery by Polly Amber Reis. Absolutely fabulous!!

    This one by Polly Misslovescraps also includes a digital element in the blended photo of her dad in the background. Another great example!

    I did not add a photo or journal card, but think (hope) I achieved the idea...

    This was not as easy as I though it would be.
    I love the clean looks - but I think I am more of a full page messy scrapper :)

    All right ladies…my first ever messy artsy type page. IDK, is it still too traditional? I am WAY out of my comfort zone, my fave style is white space minimalist, lol Looking at it now, I see I just couldn't give up the "clean" white BG and layers/cluster…I'm building up to letting go and being even more messy!

    Here was my inspiration page…

    And here's mine…
