Scrapbooker's Blog Tour

Hello! Loooooong time no post! 
Well, the kid is back at ballet so I now have some time to fill so I better get back to blogging!

I was tagged in a blog hop by Joy...check out her beautiful work here:

So here's the blog tour questions:

1. What am I working on right now?
I've been working on samples for my upcoming class at Bizzy B's.  I've just started teaching there this past month and have a Gelato techniques class coming up that I am very excited about!

2. How long does it take me to create a project?

There is no set time. Most projects I start and stop so often that I have no idea how long it actually takes to complete them!

 3. What are my favorite things to create with at the moment? 

 I am loving Silks by Luminarte right now. They are lovely mica infused acrylic glazes. They are simply beautiful mediums!

 4. How does my writing/creating process work?

I usually wait for a photo or technique idea to inspire me. I also love to get prompts from the submission calls at Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine. 
I also  think up ideas on my walks to work. I will often be listening to the Paperclipping Roundtable podcast on my phone and get many ideas from there.
Then I usually will sketch and/or write down my ideas either on paper or on my phone (especially if I can't scrap right away!) Then I gather up my products and get to work. Just picking out my supplies often takes a lot of time as I really bad at making decisions!

 5. How do I become inspired and stay inspired?
Well, I guess I already answered that a bit above! Oops.  I also do find inspiration in Pinterest, blogs, local shops, design articles and websites. 

 6. What is my signature style?
I usually characterize my style as funky-graphic. I loove trying out new techniques and ideas but I try to ground all the artsi-ness is good design principles (shameless plug for my design!)
Thanks for reading! I really hope to be back next week!!
