It’s been a while since I posted, mainly because I’ve had an artist’s block. I always wondered how an artist could, all of a sudden, not be able to create. Now I know. In my case, it was because I was overwhelmed with new information and techniques. My brain had to have time to process and absorb all the new things I have learned over the past three months. Then, things got busy at work, so it seemed like a good time to just let things mesh. My friends in the Year of ArtPlay class were so supportive and said, “Just sit back and let the flavors blend for a while.”
This layout is the first one to come out of my “simmering.” I love water and this little pond is a favorite of mine at the Botanic Gardens. I thought it was the appropriate photo to use for this layout.
This layout was done for an Oscraps challenge. I think that this may be the direction in which my style is developing – combining artsy blending with the traditional scrapbook look. Time will tell, but I feel particularly happy when I look at this one.
I hope that everyone has a wonderful Holiday over the next week – whichever one you celebrate!
