Thanks Miss Jen Gallacher for tagging me in this fun scrapbooking blog tour! Here’s a few questions that I have to answer:
1. What am I working on right now?
I bought the letterpress set from Studio Calico a while ago (see related links below) and recently bought a little CuttleBug. My goal is to figure it out and to start playing with it! I also spent the morning writing up stuff on my Calendar. As school is starting for us this week, the routine is coming back along with dentist and other appointments!
2. How long does it take me to to create a project?
I am a fast worker and I can get a lot of things done in a short period of time. However. When I do videos there are a lot of planning that needs to happen and this always takes longer than I think. I have learned to group projects together and work on the all at the same time. This saves me time and makes me way more productive. On average I would say doing a project takes about 30 minutes. But if I design Cut files with the project it takes longer. (Do you know that I am doing a full on bonus tutorial in my new Art & Design workshop showing you how I create a cut file from start to finish)
3. What are my favorite things to create with at this moment?
4. How does my creative process work?
I always start with some products. I wish I could say something more meaningful here but this is the truth. After being in this industry for so long, I think I have just learned from the get go to start with the products. I pick everything around the products – the art technique and even the photos (Color vs black and white). Sometimes the products ARE art technique mediums and those times I am at my happiest. Trying to figure out how to use this art medium in a new and innovative way.
5. How do I become inspired?
Haha. The absolute truth is that I just have to lay on my bed in the afternoon for like 7 minutes and something will come into my head and I will get up and make something. It might be something I have seen on Pinterest. Or on Instagram. I also believe the more you work the more inspired you become. Doing the work is by far the most important part of getting inspired ideas.
6. What is my signature style?
I think it’s white backgrounds with colorful art techniques or embellishments. My work is not soft and romantic anymore (Like in 2012) I think it’s way more playful, colorful and bold. I think it’s hard to name one’s signature style! But the best compliment I can ever get is when someone recognizes one of my pages without reading my name. Then I know that I have a signature style… even if I cannot put words to it.
I am tagging 3 ladies (But 2 of them have done the challenge already but I still think you will enjoy reading their answers!)
Thanks for visiting today!
