Tagged on the Blog Tour

There is a pretty special blog tour going around in the blogosphere and I was tagged by the very lovely and talented Evie.  I was quite honored to be tagged by Evie whose art I've always admired.  I've learned a lot from looking at Evie's layouts as she doesn't seem to be afraid to try something new and her layouts always have that special something that makes me just ... sigh.

I'm up today with the answers to the blog tour questions:

1.  What am I working on right now?

I'm working on a layout that's just for me.  I was going through my photos and found a favorite from years ago.  I'm putting it together with some of my favorite supplies and just plain having fun with it!

2. How long does it take me to create a project?

FOR.EVER!  I am the world's slowest scrapbooker.  But I'm OK with that.  I try not to take on more than I can handle and just enjoy the ride.  If you think you're slower than me then we'll have to race and you'll see that I'll win ... or should I say lose.

3. What are my favorite things to create with at the moment?

There are so many favorites, but I'm loving rub-ons, especially these rub-ons in gold from Jenni Bowlin Studio.  I use them not just on layouts, but on diy projects too.

4. How does my writing/creating process work?

I almost always start with a story.  If I start with a photo, I need to have the corresponding story in my head before I can even begin to gather supplies.  The story drives everything for me.

5. How do I become inspired and stay inspired?

Rest!  I've found that my inspiration goes out the window when I'm tired and exhausted.   Being rested helps a ton.  

I get inspiration from Pinterest, but not necessarily by looking at scrapbook pages.  I like taking other subjects and images on Pinterest as my inspiration for my pages.

6. What is my signature style?

Hmmm. Very difficult question because I'm not sure I have a signature style!  Serious here.  I would LOVE to say I have one, but I don't think I do!


Now I get to tag three of my favorite scrapbookers!  These scrapbookers have different styles from each other, and I love the art of all three.  I've worked with each of them in some way in the crafting industry and they are lovely women to boot!  Look forward to seeing their posts next Monday!
