I was nominated as a creative blogger by one of the super talented and my beautiful scrapbook friend Laura Gilhuly. Laura creates such amazing pieces. I totally love her work and love watching her grow. I was so lucky to get to work with her! She rocks it! Make sure to check out her blog!! We are joining up as a chain of fun blog hop tours where so many of us will get to meet new bloggers, get new inspiration and connect with blogs that will open up our creativity. This hop is sure to get your mojo going! Here are my 4 questions that need to be answered before I pass along my nominations. I'll give you my answers then lead you to 3 amazing artists you will love visiting! 1. What am I working on? I have been so blessed to be on different teams. I am working on projects for the next issue of Scrap N' Art Magazine and also for the design team of Art Anthology. Below is a sample for the magazine.
2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?
I have to say I have a varied style. I don't feel like I fit into one area. I like to try them all. Sometimes I'm in the mood for vintage... sometimes romance and then sometimes vintage romance. I love to experiment and try new techniques and tools and products. I love sharing what I learn and find. Maybe my style is hodge podge or a buffet of interesting colors.
3. Why do I write/create what I do?
I started this as a way to preserve the memories and photos of my family and of items that I find interesting. Then it grew into something more. Exploring on the internet, looking in magazines and seeing my friends work inspired me to try to do more. However I do feel that I've left my original intention and purpose behind. I feel very soon I will go back to my roots and focus more on preserving my memories of my family and friends.
4. How does your writing/creating process work?
I used to start with a photo..then I tried starting with the paper. I love my paper. Now with working on a magazine it starts with the product that I must focus on. I look to others for inspiration and technique and sometimes I implement it. I definitely dream design. I'll think about it, jot ideas down and then play - move pieces around and see what I like. Basically in the end create what you love- about what you love- using pieces and products you love. I have been so blessed in this journey and I surely hope to continue to feel inspired to create. I hope you do too!
