Let’s Scrap Design Team

You may remember that in my resolutions post back in January, one of my goals for the year was to become a part of at least 2 design teams.  Having never been on a design team before, I wasn’t sure how realistic this goal was- it seemed pretty reasonable to me, but still, artists know the fear that’s always lurking in the back of your mind that your work is total crap and no one is going to be interested in it.  So, working to overcome those feelings, I set out and started applying.  And I’m happy to announce that I have been accepted to my first design team!  Let’s Scrap Sketches.

I’m really excited about being on this team because for their challenges and inspirations, they post a scrapbook layout in sketch form that everyone uses as inspiration.  It’s fascinating to see what everyone comes up with, and how the same sketch in the hands of different artists can inspire so many different layouts and designs.

Here’s the sketch that was posted for our DT application.

And here is my take on this sketch that earned me a spot on the DT. 🙂

A bit different, but this is how I was inspired.  I have to say, I absolutely LOVE this BoBunny paper– such a beautiful collection!  And although I love the colors in this layout, I have to admit they make me feel very cold…

Check out my blog on March 15th to see my take on the next sketch, and don’t forget to see what the rest of the design team is up to.  Also were doing a month long challenge for International Scrapbooking Day (March 4th), so come play along!!

    You work is absolutely wonderful, love the artsy look of it, don’t be afraid to apply at dt teams, I always thought I wasn’t good enough, but now I know, everyone has his own style and it just depends on what kind of style they are looking for. Looking forward to work with you at the Let’s scrap design team !

    Halfway there! I love the colours and feel of this…. so stunning. Is it the altitude collection? I noticed it when it first hit shelves and fell completely and utterly in love. Looking forward to working with you this term!

    Congrats on being a Design Team member!!! I think we all struggle with the thought that people might not appreciate what we create (I know I certainly do)! However, I LOVE your work, especially this gorgeous LO!!! I can’t wait to see what else you come up with!!! 🙂

    Believe me I totally understand!!! I had taken a hiatus from DT work for several years because I didn’t get picked and that fear gets in your head and you just have to look past it and go for it…
    Your work is amazing and I am excited to be on the Let’s Scrap team with you!!!

    Anjuli I think we all have that fear. I still do and I have been on many DT. I don’t think that fear ever goes away. I love your take on the sketch and the vellum looks so cool here.
    Please do me a favour and take the bottom sketch away. It cant be seen till it goes live. Thanks hon.
