It's so exciting to be able to bring you some Stamp of the Month artwork along with my sister Rose Blossoms. You're going to love to see what every has made with "The Long Way Home". There are 15 stamps in this set for only $5. (with a $50 order)
If you came from Marg's beautiful blog you're on the right track. OR you may just be getting started. Either way - yippee. You're in for a creative adventure as you hop through all of the blogs.
Recently I was asked about my creative process. My first thought, "there's supposed to be a process?". Words like process and structure are scary to me because they indicate order. AND well, I'm not exactly orderly, EVER. As I started creating the layout I made for you today I looked through Pinterest and blogs for ideas. I wasn't inspired and it felt scary because I'm only scrapping one photo here people. I rarely do that.
Since there was nothing online I gathered the stamp set, a piece of cardstock and some scraps together in a pile. The pile looked like this ...
Here's what my "sketch" turned into.
This was a really great way to jump start my creativity literally using scraps on my desk! I will definitely try this again as a "process". The result make me happy.
Here are some closer looks at parts of this page.
|Mixed font titles are fun. I used to do them on Studio J and now I'm trying to take the time to make them with paper.|
|One of my favorite things to do with stamps is to make borders. In order to isolate this arrow stamp I took a scissors and cut the actual stamp in half. Yes, it's ok to do that. Then the stamp can be used three ways.|
|In honor of my team leader Brenda Rose I made a cluster!!!!! For two of these shapes I used the back side of the stamp because I didn't want the words, just the shape. I love that road sign but there's no "road trip" on this page.|
Thank you for stopping to look. Please keep on hopping by traveling to Kim Hill's creative blog.
I saw a sneak peek and it looks like fun, as usual.
