Hello Monday and hello to all our SCT friends! Today our friends Tracy Banks (aka Mercy Tiara!) is here with another Find Your Mojo Process Video: Deconstruction Zone! She shares a fabulous process using the brand new Hustle and Heart collection from friend Amy Tangerine for American Crafts! Let’s get this Monday started…

“Have you ever felt overwhelmed by all your pretty supplies?  Do you know what embellishments you like, but don’t know how to get them on a page? In this Find Your Mojo episode we are using a style that I call “deconstructed layouts” as a way to get your mojo flowing.  These deconstructed pages use very little to no layering, and simply involve laying out your favourite or most relevant embellishments to your story, and then gluing them down to your background page.  This is a very unique style of layout, that adds some visual interest and variety to your scrapbook album, and also takes very little time to create.  Even if this style of scrapbooking is not your forte, making a deconstructed page can be a great way to get your creative juices flowing, get a quick page out of the way, and then move on to create more pages that may be more in line with your typical style.  It’s also a wonderful way to use up leftover embellishments!  For this page, I used the wildly fun Hustle and Heart collection from Amy Tangerine and American Crafts.  In the video, I also show a few of my older deconstructed layouts.”


Layout took 1 hour to complete and used a 3.5 x 3.5 inch photo.
