Lisa working in Pam's "Inspired by Teesha" Journal
When I read about Pam's journal theme, I had heard of Teesha Moore, but didn't really know much about her work. So I checked out her blog and was blown away by her quirky and whimsical style!
But then I thought, how am I going to emulate this woman's art? It's so not me!
My word for this year (if I had actually picked one...!) would be CHALLENGE. So I thought what the hell, just give it a go!
I went through my meagre magazine collection looking for quirky things to cut out, and did find a few that I thought would suit. I was also lucky enough to win a box of stuff from Kaiser earlier this year, so had a bit of a stash of die cuts.
As we were going away on holidays to Vietnam mid month, my aim was to finish my spread and send it to Lesley early. So the sensible thing would have been to pick a page without a flap. Did I? No...! So instead of doing two pages I had to do four. Thus I had to finish it after we got back, so apologies to all!
So here are my pages. I'm not confident at all that they look like Teesha's work, but they are quirky, weird, and colourful!
First page: duck with attitude. Whatever you choose to do in life, OWN IT.
Second page - mermaids and scooters. Take a bite of life!
Third page - Picasso head. We all have many faces.
And fourth page - Foxy lady - hello beautiful!
Hope you like them Pam, I enjoyed getting out of my comfort zone!
