I’ve completely fallen in love with digital scrapping. It’s so addicting! It completely satisfies so many things my inner artist craves: color, layout, whimsy, symbolism…to name a few. And the more I explore it, the more I am intrigued with digital art journaling and the other, deepening forms it takes. I’ll be exploring that as days go by…but for now, here are some recent layouts:
Seriously…this stuff is addicting. I’m amassing kits and my head is so full of ideas that it’s hard to sleep at night. I’ve decided to just follow this creative outlet and see where it leads. It is also most definitely giving me inspiration for physical art, and I’ve got one small canvas halfway done and another ready to be started. I feel like that old spout in the middle of the wall in the movie Under The Tuscan Sun: a few drips…then a few more…and eventually, water gushing out. Digital art is my turning of the spigot handle.
Hmmm…I think I’m going to find a picture of that and scrap it.
The designs are also helping me get more “into” spring. I’m one of those odd types who actually likes fall & winter better than spring & summer (no doubt it has to do with being born and raised in FL). But I started seeing some truly gorgeous spring scrapping kits that finally spoke to me, and I decided to pull out my old Victoria magazines from the 90s. Just the May/June/July ones for now. I remembered how getting them in the mailbox always would inspire me…and flipping through them the other night inspired me again: Lush gardens, beautiful cottages, cozy scenes. I deeply crave a small garden to tend, but I’m not having one this spring since I’m moving in June. I’ll let the digital garden elements soothe that part of me for now.
