Goodmorning and welcome to the weekend! Today i am off to spend some time with friends doing something i haven't done in 20 years....taking a class, before i am off giving a class this afternoon. But today you are here as part of the blog tour that bloggers and creative people all around the world are taking part in - just for fun.
The wonderful and ever so talented digi guru Brynn Marie nominated me...
I have know Brynn for a few years and all i can say is - if you are looking for anything digital she's you girl! she is so talented kind hearted and a sometimes life gets in the way and my kids crack me up kind of girl! kind with a huge spirit for creativity. so please visit her wonderful blog and support her by shopping her digital goodies - oh and did i mention she can rock a mean traditional scrapbook page as well! now that's talent! and so back to the blog tour and my questions i have to answer....
several things, but mostly design wise - waiting for a box of new goodies to get me excited or not - who knows!then i am also working on my Project Life album and some inking goodness to submit to an international company.
2. How long does it take to create a project .
it depends - sometimes i can cut a set of papers and throw a basic idea together in 30 minutes, then finish it off in about 3 hours, but other times when life is tough it can literally take days - ugh! I find that the quick oh why don't i try this idea is the stuff i love most - just messing around makes for my best work - always. wish i would learn from that....
3. What are my fave things I love to create with at the moment
ink, ink, stamps, and die....and as of last week my Silhouette Cameo
4. How does my writing/creating process work
i normally grab a bunch of stuff that i like - a total mush mash of things that work together but with a strange twist if it may not all go too well together - i like the element of surprise and putting things together that other people won't. then i start cutting and position everything before adhering anything down. once things are placed i leave it for a few hours walking past it every now and again tweaking as i see fit, and sometimes even totally changing the original idea. then usually it all falls into place and i can fiddle and add the finishing touches.
5. How do I become inspired and stay inspired .
i shop decor stores and magazines - mostly window shopping - the colours textures and the different perspective gives me ideas on what to try. design websites are my best - always learning new things about design, composition, balance, trends etc keeps me inspired. and the one person in the industry that always inspires me is Ali Edwards - her motto of being real and just having fun while being creative always inspires.
6. What is my signature style .
difficult to say - clean and simple with a lot of inky bits and something odd thrown into the mix to balance things out. i hate working with a single range of papers - so predictable....so at the end of the day i am not sure what my style is - i just do what i love!
and there you have it....
i nominate Cathy Sanders ....
have a super weekend filled with creativity!
