Want to go on a tour with me? A creative blog tour that is! I am lucky to have some very cool and crafty friends and when my darling friend and wonderful Wonder Twin asked me to participate in this blog tour how could I refuse!! You can head to visit Kelli on her awesome blog here.
Whether you are new to the Scrapper on the Street world or have been visiting us for a while I’m going to take my turn on the tour and answer some questions and then introduce you to one of my friends and creative bloggers – ready for adventure? Let’s get started!
1. What am I Working On? Oh goodness this is a question for the ages huh? Right now I’m busily working on My Year in Disney Project as well as my Summer in Instagram project! Both are a lot of fun for me and a lot of fun for me to share! I’m also working on getting my next Scrapper on the Street up and running – Insta-Summer anyone? We just wrapped up Insta-Food and I think that will be making a return down the line too (you heard it here first)
2. How Does My Work Differ From Others in the Genre? I really focus on the moments that usually get swept under the carpet, the stories that are often thought of as insignificant but when it comes down to it these are really the stories we want to remember and I put these photos and stories together in pages that are fun, inventive, playful. I push myself and all of you to find your style, to play with it, change it and reinvent it. Having fun and telling stories that’s what we are all about!!
3. Why Do I Create What I Do? I create to tell stories, to have a wonderful creative outlet and I create to connect with people. I love photos, and paper and jotting down stories and I also love to get messy and just play and have fun.
4. How Does My Creative Process Work? I’m always inspired by something, product, photos, a story, I let that initial spark guide me. I choose photos, then paper that seems to fit the story and at times even enhance it. I work with layers and clusters a lot so I will set everything up and then move around until I feel it is visually appealing. When I have everything glued down I find a spot for my journaling, and before I call a page finished I usually ink edges or add splatters. My process is simple – if I like it and think it looks cool I make it happen!
