Let’s just say I could blab away about digital scrapbooking until the cows come home or an asteriod crash on the planet (whichever comes first). I finished by first layout in December 2006 and joined my first digicommunity in January 2008–and never looked back. Digiscrapping started out as creative expression for myself. I have two artist siblings, so I always felt rather out of the talent loop for an artistic endeavor. Scrapping gives me the delusion I can create beautiful things. Plus, it combines a whole bunch of things I love:photos + words + design. I love how the community of creative artists–many of whom I’m blessed to call my friends–comes together to share and inspire.
From my initial intentions in scrapping, now I scrap to tell my story. I’m nuts about getting my journaling down on my pages and just eat up anything that’ll help me to that end. Scrapping has opened my eyes to a whole different kind of storytelling and in case it isn’t obvious yet, I’m a chatterbox. So this is the perfect outlet for the thoughts and whatnot that clutter my brain (aside from blogging. I’m a better scrapper than blogger).
Doing this hobby for almost six years has taught me that everyone’s story is important and should be told. I believe each of us on this earth is connected and are capable of inspiring each other. However that looks–through words, photos, sketches, design, or any other art form–we all have something to learn from the other.
I’m truly honored and thankful for these designers who inspire me, as they’re all made of AWEZOME.
