I'm changing gears from historical photos to a light-hearted summer layout, and I really enjoyed playing along with several challenges (see below). One technique I tried that is definitely not in my comfort zone was doodling. After doing some research on the internet, I added some doodles to my banner at the top of the page and to my die-cut title, and even embellished a few pre-made items, like the sun and file folder tab. Not sure this is a technique I will use often, but sometimes it's good to stretch yourself creatively!
