As I shared yesterday, it is essential to write down your goals.
Specifically your creative goals.
Essential for growth.
Essential for that creative muscle to grow.
Essential for your personal ability to inspire and create.
A way I stay in the mix is by taking classes here and there.
Especially classes that peak my interest or when someone I admire is leading the class.
I always gain something from an online class.
Pop Off the Page by Studio Calico with Jen Jockisch has been no exception.
It's not because I don't know how to compose a photo layout.
It's not because I don't know how to play with paper and make it work.
It's not because I don't have any ideas.
It's because I want to stay fresh. current. and continue to establish my style.
This class has accomplished all that for me just as I had hoped. (hmm...a little goal setting happening)
PLUS...it has reminded me how how much I really do love the traditional scrapbook page.
I do not do them as often as I have in the past for many reasons.
But I really do love the process.
I shared a little peak of a card I made for this class yesterday...
here is the rest::
This was from Lesson1.
We were challenged to lift one of the contributors and I chose Danielle Flanders.
This card utilizes a few techniques shared in the class.
This card shares a sentiment from yesterday's post that is vital to me right now.
This card was designed to share with a friend who I think may need it right now.
This card was made with Vintage Chic scraps left over on my table making a project for HeidiSwapp that will be published tomorrow.
I have to share one other...do you mind?
This was also from Lesson1.
An exercise in layers and textures. Plus misting and stenciling.
It's not totally my style, but that is just the point, practicing an idea outside of my personal zone.
Love these sorts of exercises.
Can you stand that sweet face?
Now go...try something outside of your zone today.
