Depends who you ask I guess!!! There's a few of us asking this soul-searching question right now. The reason? The latest Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge wants us to demonstrate what we are known for. Some people have a very distinct style which they have perfected and just like to tinker with. I am like others who have the urge to play with all sorts of styles/media/projects (make of that what you will!) Having looked back over previous posts there is one similarity though. Embossing. Be it dry or using powder it seems to appear in most of my projects. So who am I to disappoint with my entry to the SSS&S challenge:))
Another in the Japanese style - well that's what happens when you get hooked on these Nicecrane Design images! This is from the Japanese Gardens set again. Oh and you may have noticed from my sidebar that Ignacio of Nicecrane Designs has kindly asked me to be on the Design Team! Another happy dance!!
Some close ups now to show you more detail.
I just had to make some more of that Japanese script background paper.
I embossed the kraft glassine paper with the same Postcard folder used for the frame. And the mini sewing machine got another airing. Twice is enough for me - I'll be using my big machine in future.
This is one of my silver Ferro embossing experiments onto which DI Peeled Paint and Stormy Sky were pounced. The image was clear embossed and the edges were painted with DS Brushed Cordruoy.
The jade backing paper really needed a hint of distressing and black stamping.
A bouquet of leaves kept this 'gender neutral' (there's another one for you Annie!!:) And finally some Ideology washers reminded me of those lucky coins you see on lots of Oriental projects.
So do you think this represents me? I'd love to hear what you think. Oh, and messages to the following bloggers who I can't seem to reply to:
Lorraine (in Ontario) - the digital images are fantastic to use as you can print them onto whatever your printer will allow (including vellum, different types of card and printer-friendly fabric) and resize them. And they are already coloured for you so that makes it even quicker!!
Patricia Howarth - think I am probably losing the plot lovely lady because I can't track down your blog/crafting showcase to reciprocate your kind comments. Please let me know where you are!!
Thank you everyone for spending your precious time with me. I feel very humbled and privileged to have your company. Take care of yourselves, hugs Jenny xxx
