Do you scrap realisticly?

I always try to scrap a page like I'm actually using real supplies. Could you write on top of a flower? Or have a wooden/thick frame on the edge that was cut off? I've been noticing a lot of layouts with things on them that wouldn't be possible with paper. Some of them look neat, but my logical brain says it's wrong. Just curious if anyone else acts like they are scrapping with paper....

Here's another page from Amanda Heimann and Ziggle Designs Firefly Lane available at Scrap Orchard.


Mary (littlehiccup) has made this awesome, superhero friendly kit that's free on her blog. http://plumdumplingdesigns.blogspot.com/2009/02/friends-for-good_16.html
I just had to use it for this picture of Andrew at Halloween.


Haynay has a new kit, Mint Chocolate Chip coming out tomorrow filled with greens and browns. She also has a coupon and coordinating freebie on her blog: http://haynay.blogspot.com/

I did this for a speed scrap last night and literally did it in 20 minutes. I had started a page and just wasn't feeling it, so I redid the whole thing right at the end. I'm pleased with it, but would've done more.


I also want to share a preview of the whole daily download that starts at Scrap Matters on Monday!! I'm loving it already. It makes me want to get the Wii Fit even more!

Oh I agree! I also like to scrap as though the supplies were paper -- can't put a sticker over something lumpybumpy for example. It just doesn't look real, no matter how pretty!
