Experimenting own style

Everybody's discovering what their style really is when it comes to scrapbooking... Mmm... I don't really know what my style is too.... I've finally made two layouts when 5 of my assignments has been completed (HALLELUJAH!) and these are the failure and success.....
I wanted to follow Celine Navarro's sketch on her blog (you should check out, it is sooooooooooo cool!) and quickly finish up the Field Guide kit from SC... sigh, it did not turn out what I expected. It's boring, straight and boring again.. wanted to add some butterflies and embellishment, but I didn't know where to put them... mmm.... some circles may help but I don't even have a single circle punch in my stash... oh so pathetic.... haha
can I just leave it as it is?

after the failure, I tried to make another layout not following any sketches or referring to any other awesome projects from those awesome scrappers the other day. What came into my mind was the Project Life display idea (i think they call it blocking?) + Celine's 'colourful' use on her layouts (yes, just in case you did not notice, I'm a big Celine fan, a really big one).

Still figuring out why the photos' are so blur :( so sorry about that.
I made blocks by measuring in inches, then worked box by box.
Used your favourite white Huey on your favourite wood background paper from Crate paper and added flowers... me likey the effect :D

Misted some of the areas with Plumb Thumb mist, the color is AWESOME, never have I ever thought this colour would make a project pretty :)
Super like this bee stamp from AC.... Blowed the inks and had this watercolour effect, and *wink wink* I handcarved the JOY speechbubble... please look twice at the JOY and later scroll down if you like it :D

A printable from oh-no I've forgotten the source! with the pretty Plumb Thumb mist again :)
Here I misted the red pattern paper with white mist then stamp the sentiment on... sprinkle TA mist and yeah that Plumb Thumb again....

Date please...

Do you like the JOY stamped image? Okay, I'll giveaway one set in 6s !... please help me by letting me know what is my style and comment on this post with your e-mail address please... the JOYful winner will be announced next Friday ( 13 April 2012 )... TIA :)
