This week I asked some friends of mine Tracy, Danice and Nic what they thought my scraping style was and I was a bit surprised at what they said. They all saw something in my Los that I didn't. I had always thought I had a rather mixed kinda style but all agreed on linear, tidy and contemporary. I have never looked at all my Los together at once before to see it, but they are so right!!!
The reason I wanted to know my style was not so I could change it but expand it, learn, try new things, try new ways to set the paper e.g. ripping paper something that I'm not a fan of.
Not everything has to start up and down and tidy all the time, buttons and flowers can be used in more or less of groups of three, not everything needs a matt around it and I don't need to use the whole paper sometimes less is more. These are just a few things I am going to try and work on
So a question to you. What is your style and how can you build on it?
And now for the Los
This first one was from a very girlie sketch and I wanted to make it as a boy Lo just to see if I could.
This one I did after the whole what's my style question was asked. I think I did rather well the paper is off on a angle and the buttons are not in groups of three. Its a working progress baby steps.
