Hi everyone!! I've been nominated by one of my artsy friends Sharon Martinelli to join this "creative blog hop", where we have the opportunity to know new bloggers from all around the world to get inspiration, learn new techniques and finally have new creative experiences.
Clik HERE to read Sharon's post. Thanks for the nomination!!
There are four questions all the participants need to answer, before they nominate three other bloggers to continue on the tour. I will answer my four questions, and then lead you to three talented artists I've chosen.
1.- What are you working on?
I can't say I'm working on just ONE project. I'm usually watching online classes and that makes me want to try everything so I tend to start many projects at a time, trying new techniques and when I feel it's the right time, I finish them (or maybe not...).
Here is an example of four unfinished projects I've been working on.
2.- How does your work differ from from other's of it's genre?
This is a hard one....I think after so many years creating, I have developed sort of a "quirky" style. Even I like all styles, I love to create something that is unusual, unreal....does this make sense??
I started as a digital scrapbooker and there are so many possibilities to make nosense stuff...but I love paper so I decided to emulate that in my work.
These are some digital pages I've done
3.-Why do you create what you do?
This is an easy one....because I LOVE what I do!!!! I love color, makes me happy and gives me the opportunity to express myself in another way.
4.- How does your creative process work?
It just flows, I never plan what I'll be doing, I let myself create freely and don't know wher it will lead me.
Now the blog tour needs to continue, so here are the three creative bloggers I chose:
A extraordinaire photograper and mixed media artist. Her photos captured me a few years ago and I could see her "in action" during a trip to Las Vegas where Linda and her husband went to meet me, how sweet is that???
I love to make foam stamps to create patterns with them so I decided to share this on a video I prepared for "Scraps of Darkness" featuring their gorgeous June kit "Perfectly Stunning". I also included the process of making an art journal page using these stamps.
Hi all!! I'm here again to share my take on an online class with Roben-Marie Smith about how to use your scraps of paper to make a journal. I love the messy look of it!!
For the cover I used a large sheet of watercolor paper (32" X 22"), I cut it in half and I got 2 pieces of 32" X 11" (I used only one of them to create my cover). I also cut several sheets of plain white cardstock in 7.5" X 10.5" to use them as a base. You want to have a pretty sturdy paper to collage and work on it.
We all have a huge amount of scraps, even bits and pieces that we can collage and make a whole new paper for the journal. I used my Gelli prints on Deli paper, old book pages, sewed papers, newspaper, old phone directory pages, postacards, images I like, I made my own pattern papers by coloring them with Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays and after they dried I stamped all over with home made stamps.
Fold the paper in half, open it and fold 2 flaps towards the center. Leave a tiny space so when you add the pages it will close properly
I created these papers for the cover collaging deli painted papers, old book pages and stamped papers.
I chose the papers to glue them on the inside and the outside
This is the stamp I used to make a pattern paper. It was made with sticky back foam and mounted on a piece of "Mounting board"
