Be Unique

OK, so I had a revelation the other day while watching a webisode on Scrap in Stlye TV. I've been scrapping for a few years, but never really found my "STYLE". Well with my revelation came my NEW style inspiration. I realized that I had been letting other peoples work define what I thought was good art. This is not good. Inspiration from other people is fine, but one should define themselves as an individual, hence this lo using my newly invented style. Paper: 7 Gypsies, overlay(I cant remember what comp its from sorry :) Stamps: IOD build a frame collection II, stamp abilities paisley background(on slide mount), "B" stamp hl foam stamps Felt flowers: prima Slide mount: dollar scrapbooking Stickers: around the block shrinky stickers(doodle alphabet) Chipboard photo corner: Basic Grey Ink: Su pink passion Stazon white and black .
The journaling reads: I had an epiphany yest. In life, scrap booking,etc. I have tried to put myself in a box that I thought I should be in. I focused on what society thought was "pretty", "good art", and "normal"; but I'm don! I am an individual! I set my own rules, go my own way, create my own version of UNIQUE.
****** Special thanks to Ali Edwards your interview changed my crafting life!!!!
Hope you like it. I LOVE it, and I'm really pleased with how it turned out.
Now I'm off to finish a recipe swap. 1 down, 7 to go!!!!!!!!!
