Good morning, Well I am starting Monday off right with a fun blog post! I'm excited to be a part of the Creative Blog Tour. Big Thank you to my lovely friend LYNN for asking me to join in. If you haven't already, make sure to check out her blog too!!! She is terribly talented!!
I am a scrapbooker!! I typically only make layouts but do love creating altered objects when time permits!! Once in a while I will even make a card!! I have been crafting most of my life but I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2001. I scoffed at first but it didn't take me long to be hooked!! My style has developed over the years and has settled into a kind of shabby chic, artistic blend. I love distressing and inking on my layouts, mixed media, stamping, white space makes me nervous!! I love most of what Tim Holtz & Ranger have developed. I can't say there are any companies that don't have something I like, but I do tend to gravitate towards Fancy Pants, 7 Gypsies, Prima & Bo-bunny, Graphic 45 and Glitz Design. I work full time as a landscape designer as well as part time at the best store ever... Scrappin' Great Deals. I am also fortunate to be on the design team for The Paper Loft. (Love their products!!)
I also love to colour with Derwent Inktense Pencil Crayons!! Love the depth & the intensity you can achieve with them.
Here is a mixed media canvas:
I also teach a monthly Art Journalling class with my friend Kim:
Thanks for popping in!!
