Creative Jumpstart 2013 - Balzer Designs

I'm 'at play' and it's getting messy!

I signed up to participate in Creative Jumpstart Summit 2013... a fantastic programme founded by Nathalie Kalbach from N*Studio to help creative types find inspiration (and get a creative kickstart) for the new year... and amazingly it's FREE!

You can find out more information and sign up here!  It's not too late, as the video tutorials will be available until the middle of the year!

So here it is, mid-January, and I thought it was about time to get stuck into Creative Jumpstart and I sure could do with a some inspiration, creatively speaking!  I'm looking forward to learning some new techniques and skills too!

'It's All About Playfulness'

This is my first attempt at working through a Creative Jumpstart tutorial.  This one was presented by Julie Fei Fan Balzer of Balzer Designs - CJS No 2. It was all about, 'Three Different Ways to Add Colour to Tags'.  This is also my first ever attempt at what I would call an art journalling style!  I can see myself really enjoying playing in a journal, up 'til now I wasn't convinced!  Yes, I think it's time to buy an art journal and have a play!

Here's my second tag 'I Love To Play', with just a touch of collage - an added strip of vintage paper.

These were so much fun, well after I got over getting very messy hands and not having complete control over the outcome!  They were also a great reminder to add layer, upon layer, upon layer until you're satisfied with the end result!

I'll be working on more of these for sure... perhaps you'll see some more tags tomorrow!
