I’ve been invited by Adele to be part of the Creative Blog Tour where we are asking and answering a series of questions about each other to find out a little more about the creative process.
1. What am I working on?
I run two challenge blogs ...
and am currently serving on the teams of
I also like to do a few challenges myself for other blogs - I figure I can't expect people to support mine if I don't also support some of them so really my craft time is well and truly taken up.
2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?
I think we all have our own personal styles - sometimes we break out of these and try something different but we probably are all guilty of staying close to what makes us comfortable and happy as crafters. My own personal style is clean and simple. While I admire those that cover their pages with product and produce wonderful mixed media creations, this style just isn't for me. I like a non cluttered, minimal look, heavy on white space and light on product.
3. Why do I write/create what I do?
I like to be creative and I think we all need some form of outlet that makes us feel good. Some people may play sport, others might persue another form of craft but for me it's scrapbooking. It's my go to place to let the stresses of daily life wash over me and to feel content in myself. And of course it is always about preserving those special memories for myself and my family.
I think this differs depending on what I am undertaking at the time. My design team commitments mean I have to follow a certain criteria in the layouts I produce so that is first and foremost in my mind when I set down to create - finding an idea that will work with set criteria or a sketch design. Working with a particular colour palette or a technique can be challenging at times but makes the whole process all the more interesting.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day.
