A few weeks ago Denise van Deventer contacted me and asked me to join her in a blog hop with a difference. It is really just about exploring different blogs and I have chosen three blogs for you to visit. They are not all scrappy but are filled with plenty of prettiness and creativity. I met Denise at a scrapping event where we were teaching together, she tagged me here, Denise is a prominent member at Scrap Africa and currently on a number of design teams imcluding BoBuny.
What am I working on?
How does my work differ from others of its genre?
I cant really define whether my work is different to other scrappers... I am definately a shabby-chic, romantic scrapper.. I am very detail orientated, love layers and making my own flowers. Scrapbooking is not so much about re-inventing the wheel but adapting and putting your own stamp on the very many techniques available today, there really are no rules anymore.
I was very fortunate in that my grandmother and mother were both creatives and I learned many crafts and skills from them. Once I discovered scrapbooking I was in heaven, here I could spend hours creating something my children and grandchildren could appreciate. Creating is food for the soul and is my happy place.
How does your creating process work?
I work backwards to most scrappers, I get an idea, then make the background of a Layout and then look for photos. I love the first stage of designing the background, then can get quite bored with the in -between humdrum part of getting everything together and then once the photos are on I spend hours fiddling and refining. I am not a prolific scrapper as I spend far to much time on all the small details.
I am tagging the following blogs
Nadia has a blog filled with awesomeness, it is not a scrapping blog but a wonderful blog for creatives.
Margaret is a friend and new to the blog sphere, so pop in and leave her some loveKirsty is a lovely lady who I met on one of Nadia's creative workshops and watching her grow in her creative journey has been amazing.
