Do you need a creative Jumpstart for the New Year?

Okay so I know I've been "creatively" MIA for several months.  But as a lot of you know I had a wedding to plan. MINE!! Yikes, that takes so much time.  But now it's over and I am married to a very supportive husband!

So I just taught a Ranger tag technique class at a local weekend scrapbook crop and it made me realize that it's really time for me to get "creative" and "inky"!
So to give me a jumpstart on inspiration, I went back to look at some of my past work, whether it be layouts or projects or tags.
Feel free to click on the pics for a closer look at the project!
Altered "Rat" traps! I know but it's so cool after it's altered for a photo/memo holder!
art journal pages and cover using various sprays and paints in the industry.
This is a metal art journal that I covered for my Bestie for her Birthday! This is created using foil paper by Ranger and various alcohol inks to create that industrial look! Lovely!!!

And these are some awesome tags that I created for "trades" with other artist that attended the Tim Holtz cruise in 2011.  I did these techniques using "Goose bumps" by Tsukineko Ink! LOVE how these turned out.

My configurations tray that I made on the Tim Holtz cruise in 2011! We had to gather little trinkets at each port of call, plus others that we traded with people in our class.  So it's a momento from the entire week long cruise.   Love, Love this idea! About to make a new one!!! Stay tuned for that!!

These were a couple of double page scrapbook layouts that I taught last year.  "Timeless Memories" was taught at a local weekend scrapbook retreat using stamping/inking technique and goosebumps texture spray to display lots of layering and texturing.  "Las Vegas" was a rather simple layout where I taught photo dimension technique. Great class!
And who could forget my "original" smash book that I created to keep all of my momentos from my Tim Holtz cruiz!  I created each page and the front and back covers using manilla folder, cut to size, inked the way I wanted and bound them using my WR Memory Keepers Cinch binding machine!
So I hope if you need a creative jumpstart that some of these projects from memory lane might help you to get your creative motor running! I know it did just that for me so stay tunned in the next few days for some creative newness coming your way!!!
