Today is my turn to share with you my creative process. I hope you have enjoyed all of the posts from the other Master Forgers about their process and their page kits and that it has given you a chance to get caught up a little.
In previous blog posts I have shared the different ways that I create my kits so I thought I would discuss my process for creating a project.
Generally, I try to clean up after each project. My desk will usually look like this when I start off a new project.
There is usually a starting point for a project - something that sparks my interest. It may be a sketch, a new purchase I want to use, etc.
For this project, I am making two cards and one of them is for a lady that loves pink and bling so I have picked these items out of my stash as my inspiration.
I also have these stamps that I want to use on the cards. This is a new stamp company and I love the font and the borders on these stamps. Now lets raid my scrap stash for some paper.
I think this will be just the thing!
If I don't have a sketch or a challenge that I am working from, then I just kind of play around with the paper to make it work. For this card above, it's hard to tell but the bottom stamp is actually double-stamped, slightly offset. I like to that sometimes to make it look like it has a shadow.
And here is the card that I started with. I think she will like it. I also dressed up the inside a bit.
More sparkle! And that is my scrappy process in a nutshell. So do you have a system for how you scrap or do you just go how the wind blows? I used to think I didn't really have a set way to scrap till one day it just clicked that I really always start the same way. It was one of those "aha" moments. I bet if you really think about it you have a process too!
