First up I have the get to know us better questions....
What is your scrapbook "Kryptonite"(what style/colour/etc will people never see on your creations because you cannot deal with it???) Well, my Kryptonite has to be "cutsie" .....give me grunge any day...
What do you listen to or watch wile you scrap and why? Well, I love to play movies or TV series on DVD, preferably something I have already seen and enjoyed..... that way I can create and not be distracted....currently I am enjoying the TV series' "Eureka and Friday Night Lights"
Do you snack or drink while scrapping? What? Confession time yes I snack while scrapping.... preferred snack: "Raspberry Choc Bits" OMG! totally irresistible....
How do you jump start your creativity when you find that it is missing? Tough question to answer, but I force myself to start painting, drawing or stamping anything and I just keep doing it until it's back.... Usually, the hardest part is to actually start, get over that hurdle and your back!
What is your favourite technique(s) to use right now and why? What are some tried and true techniques you love to use? Right now I love making textured backgrounds with stencils, impasto, gesso and modelling paste.... Tried and true techniques, distressing and inking everything, has to be right up there for me...
At what time of day are you most creative, or do you prefer to create? My most creative time is from midnight to three am! Creative juices freely flowing after midnight!!
What makes you heart race? Easy, riding my Harley Davidson!! Creating!! Teaching!! Oh and my hubby of course, lol!
If you were to describe one emotion while scrapbooking, what would it be? Fulfillment!
What are you afraid of? Without question SNAKES! Oh, my Gawd, just typing it gives me chills!!!
If you could choose a talent/gift, what would you take? Tough question, hmmm, and I'm probably supposed to choose something arty/crafty but.... I think I'd have to say Time Travel....you know like in the movies "Jumper/Time Travelers Wife" so I can jump to any point/place in time.... that would be awesome... Yep I think that would have to be it for me...
So now onto my little bit of inspiration that I have created to share with you all today.... "Dream" An Altered Frame...
I wanted to create something using some of my favourite products, naturally Scrap FX (the best chippie), modelling paste/impasto and fantasy film and all put together using Helmar adhesives.
To create the background on the frame, I used modelling paste and a simple plastic knife (you know like you'd use at a picnic) they create great texture and are so cheap!!
(Daisy Garden) with impasto, I then force dried the impasto to get it to bubble up... the whole thing was then painted with gesso and sprayed with various colour sprays, a little metallic rubs applied to the stenciled area and the background is complete.
450 Quickdry Adhesive to finish the project off.
Here's a list of all the glorious Scrap FX chippie I used:
I hope you've been inspired to create your own wonderful chippie creations.
