Hello ladies! I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far.....
So, I found a blog recently that I just absolutely love! They posted a sketch a couple
of weeks ago, and I loved it's simplicity so much that I knew I had to play along.
The blog is called paperdvizhnik.... so many beautiful layouts, lots of talented girls,
I was just so inspired.
A girlfriend of mine had given me a pair of gorgeous earrings that were silver and full
of rhinestones, so so pretty. So I thought I had to scrap them in some way, hence the 'selfie' (lol).
Then as I was looking at the photo, I thought of this sketch, and all of a sudden I knew exactly
what I was going to do with it. I loved the simplicity and minimalistic look of the sketch
and I saw something elegant with silver, gems, and lots of white.
Here is the sketch...
Here are a few close ups...
I found this blog by reading Gayle Price's Bliss and Gesso. She is on the design team
and I wanted to share her post here.... it talks about how we create and I just loved her description
of what goes into creating a lo, it so perfectly sums up what makes a page unique, interesting, and one that communicates a story or an emotion....I couldn't have said it better myself and I hope
it's ok to share here ;)....She talks about whether or not you start a project
with a very specific look in mind, or if you stay completely open to the process of creating
and see where it takes you. I admit to both; there are times when I let the photo, the colors, the
materials guide where the design eventually goes, but there other times like with this lo,
that I know exactly how I want it to look....I would love to know your thoughts....?
How does your creative process go?
I used some new Blue Fern Studios chipboard called 'Ornate Medallions' and
I embossed them in silver and tucked them behind my photo.
So Gayle's post also posed a great question, what's more important, your process or the end result?
I find creating something relaxing, calming, and so rewarding, so I guess I enjoy both equally.....
Thanks for stopping by......
Big hugs, Lisa xo
