Inspiration Blog Hop

Connecting with other people who share the same passion for art, crafts and memory keeping through The Inspiration Blog Hop is a good way to stay inspired.  Thank you to my sister, Rianne, of Make Ideas Happen, for tagging me.

WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON?

PROJECT LIFE

Earlier in the year, I got so inspired by my sister’s project life spreads.  I could not help but make my own, too. I love how project life has made me more conscious about documenting the good events/things in my life.  At the same time, I’m able to use materials I hoard love, like patterned paper, themed cards, stamps, etc.   Right now, the spread I’m working on is about the highlights of our trip to Palm Beach, Batangas last 2010(!!!).

PHOTOBOOKS

I always document travel memories through photobooks. I’ve got 10 free 6 x 6 softcover photobooks I need to finish before February 2015.   I’m working on my Palm Beach photobook(again!) and another secret photobook that I plan to give as a gift for Christmas. 🙂

ART JOURNAL

I joined a free art journal workshop at Journal52.com.  Each week, a prompt is issued out to the group.    The group is on week 37, but you can work at your own pace.  There are no rules except to have fun and enjoy creating pages.  For week 1, the theme was Up, Up and Away.  I can’t seem to move past that week because I keep wanting to make more pages about that theme. 🙂

#BOOKWORMPROBLEMS

The Manila International Bookfair 2014 has gotten me so hyped about my love for books.  I have challenged myself to come up with a weekly doodle about the problems only true bookworms could relate to.

HOW DOES YOUR WORK DIFFER FROM OTHERS?

Right now, I don’t think there’s anything unique about what I make.  Ever read the book “STEAL LIKE AN ARTIST”?  Nothing and no one is ever 100% original.  The important thing for me is that I enjoy the process and the product.

WHY DO YOU CREATE WHAT YOU DO?

Spend the whole day with a toddler and I guarantee you’ll need some form of therapy after.  Hehehe!  It’s fun to make stuff and play with watercolor, paper, stamps ….. and many more.

HOW DOES YOUR CREATING PROCESS WORK?

I stay inspired by looking through Pinterest or by thumbing through my collection of craft magazines and books. When I see some technique that I like, I try to put my own spin on it in my sketchbook/art journal.  Sometimes, my projects take form after I buy a new product from National Bookstore or Lasting Impression.

Lynette, Andrea and Dette, I’m excited to see what you’re working on. 🙂
