Let's Talk About Personal Style

Happy New Year! It has been quite awhile since my last post. I've had house guests for two weeks and thoroughly enjoyed the holidays with family and friends. The decorations are down and the refrigerator is cleaned out. Time for 2011.

I thought we would talk about our own personal style. Do you have one? When I look around my home, I would definitely say eclectic..a mix of the things I love. Some traditional styles (tweeds and natural organic prints) mixed with antiques (shaker style, old warm wood) and just a splash of color here and there. I am not a decorator, don't pretend to be. But when people walk into my home, regardless of where it has been, they feel comfortable. Just last week a friend said, your house always feels so homey.

I find it very difficult to translate this style into my crafts. So, in 2011 I think I'm really going to try and focus in this area. I've made a couple of cards that probably most reflect my style, I hope you enjoy them.

Stamps are from Club Scrap, Hero Arts and PSX. I apologize for the photos, they were taken right on my craft mat. Can you define your personal style? Tell me about it, I'd love to hear.

Julie,
I love this question! I have a few posts on my blog (I think I tagged them "style"), as it is something I think about a lot. I know there's certain color palettes I'm drawn to and certain images appear repeatedly in my art. I also use words/quotes on almost every piece. I've also been drawn to plaster as a medium. I think I'm Vintage Latina if that makes sense!

I'm uncertain on how to combine "my style" Whimsical and Organic. Love these cards so much!

what a great question, but I'm not really sure what my style is. I've thought of this before and can't quite put my finger on it. I am drawn to certain colors - probably more muted in tone would be a good description. I like more straight-forward layouts, simple but always with a bit of something added (not bling usually). I'm going to try and pay more attention this year.
