How has your style evolved?


Old-Curiosity-Shoppe

It is interesting how one's style can evolve over time. This was a canvas I did back in April. When my mixed media arsenal was pretty much Maya mists and whatever Tim Holtz made me buy [yes, that man's such an enabler! *LOL*]...



Some wrapping tissue and doilies...lots of mists, stickles and Graphic 45 patterned papers.
[This card which features the use of  doilies was first shared in the Three Cool Chicks' Let's Get Trendy Now! workshop held in May.]

Then I discovered Golden mediums....and these were the results...



Tell me, how has your style evolved?

awesome canvases...There was a time that I did lots of layers and bumpiness...now not so much. I don't know if it is my style evolving or laziness:)

Naomi Edwards said...

Beautiful canvas... I love all of them, you were great before your style evolved!hugs

Hussena said...

All your canvases are beautiful the before as well as the after ones...i think recently though you are trying out more of bright colors which really adds so much to the overall look!!

Laurel said...

Julie Tucker-Wolek said...

I'm not sure -- I think it depends if I am having a lazy day or not... lol!! I loveeeeeeeeeee this!!! You know I love me some G45 and loving the textures!!!

How fun to see how you've evolved!

TesaB said...

They are all great, fun see the change over time!!! I don't think I evolve, I do pretty much same, same... :)

I love your style so whimsical. I think my style is best described as CAS now. I think it has always been my style since I started making cards and scrapbooking.

Annette said...

so cool...

I love ALL your work... although your first piece is closer to my style and I'm drawn to that one. I tried nearly everything and came back to the distressed, shabby look... with plenty of flowers. But I wonder... will we all modify our styles latter on in the game?
Hugs!

Tone-Lill said...

It's funny how things changes with what we buy lol, either way all of your canvases looks like magic!!

Holly AKA KopyKat said...

I dunno, I LOVE the first one and the other three are awesome too! They are all fabulous. So much fun! Tim enables you too huh? Scrappy Pusher, lol.

Audrey Pettit said...

My gosh, your canvases are so fabulous! Really love the fun vintage vibe of the latest!
My style has definitely evolved quite a bit.....when I first started, all I did was stamping with lots of cardstock. Now I hardly ever touch cardstock, and don't do too much stamping.....:)

Well I have to say all your canvases here look amazing. I am thinking I still need a bit of help with mixed media. But it sure is fun to play with.

I love them all. I think change is constant and good for the creative mind!

Helen Tilbury said...

I wish I could buy these Golden products I keep reading about! I can't even see them online!! Aha I will buy them in Singapore for sure!! Must remember my big box to ship everything back!!! I love how your style has evolved - lighter and more modern!!

To answer this fascinating question... hmm. First I was all frilly and romantic and literally filled all available space in my layouts. They would take weeks to complete. Now I have maybe an hour a night to complete DT assignments with a certain amount of must use materials in each page so I tend to be minimalist and more graphic. I also rarely "shop my stash" since I hate cleaning up afterwards so I tend to use the latest thing I bought and whatever is on my scrap desk at the moment.
I love the texture in your canvases! I tend to stay away from Golden products- I'm broke as it is- I can't afford another high end product addiction (I had to draw the line at paper- sad face). They are on my list though- the purity of those colors is fantastic.

This is great. Love all your arts. I have to try some of your tutorials. I am making mostly digital scrapbooking but this is so cool. I could even use some digital stuff for such a projects. Thank you for your articles.
