Layout: I create therefore I am

Just for fun – using up some snippets , trying things :)

Einfach nur so aus Spaß – ein paar Reste verwertend und neue Dinge ausprobierend :)

*I Create Therefore I am*

Journaling: I never thought of myself as a creative person. I liked art in school and had ok results but never felt this was a path for me. I chose the “non-creative” way for my life. Only in the last couple years I allowed myself to be more creative, embrace it – use it as an outlet and I have become a so much better person. It calms me down and makes me happy to be in my studio and let my hands do what they want. I’m lucky to find this out – I create – therefore I am :)

Supplies: Scraps of papers for example: KI-Company, Prima, Rose Moka, Graphic 45, Basic Grey, Autumn Leaves, Old postcard, pieces of doilies, Glimmer Mist, Golden Medium, Fabric, vintage lace, Tattered Angels Stencils, Rose Moka Stickers, Prima Centers, Quote-tag for books, Hambly transparent Stickerstripes


Techniques: I applied little – hand ripped pieces of scraps with a palette knife and golden medium to  a piece of cardstock. I used a stencil and sprayed over it with  Glimmer Mist to tie everything together. For the same purpose I sewed some crazy pattern over. I then glued down some of the strips vertically and  horizontal. I misted the Quote Tag – which I have from a book store and applied my journaling. I rolled fabric and old lace to a flower on some old music sheet paper and then misted this too.

Have a creative day :)

    What a wonderful, colorful LO Nat. It’s good to have fun and not have an “assignment” to be doing. I love the journaling and feel much the same way myself.
