I plan on posting some of what I learned about my style doing this May's LOAD, which was super fun. One thing I learned was that I'm not a techniquey gal. I prefer pretty paper and clustered accents to figuring out how to build a flower from my supplies.
Still, every now and then I get all techniquey on a LO. Nothing fancy, mind you, but a little. Take this LO:
I did this one using a sketch at Sketchy Thursdays. As soon as I saw it, I wondered if all the strips of paper had to be paper. I pulled out my fabulous flourish template from Bazzill and used that, then pulled out a new dot stamp from Unity Stamp that I hadn't used yet; I slathered on some paint and added a "strip" of paint.
And in case you can't tell, this is a hybrid LO. I added a few grunge layers to my photo, as well as some flourishes. I mentioned yesterday that changing a photo to black and white helps save many of my blurry photos; I'm also discovering that adding grunge layers masks a blurry photo too. As in this case.
