Hello everyone! Jenessa here. Although I
will not officially be taking over the administrative duties of Sketches With
Color until April 1st (as I am still consumed with unpacking and settling into
our new home after ourrecent
move from Southern California to Dallas, Texas) I wanted to take the time to
I first discovered scrapbooking in 1995,
and I made my first album using construction paper and rubber cement...an
absolute archival disaster! Fast forward to the present, and I've become quite
passionate about this constantly evolving art form. Having always endeavored in
arts & crafts such as drawing, painting and counted cross stitch, paper
crafting has been such a natural progression for me. My husband has been
incredibly supportive of myhobbyobsession by allowing me to utilize
half of our spacious family room as my own personal crafting area as well as
hanging out with our kids when I need some creative therapy.
I serve on several Designs Teams...Let's
Get Sketchy!, S.W.A.T., All About A Boy, and of course Sketches With Color
where I have been the resident cardmaker. I also design sketches for Colorful
Creations and Let's Get Sketchy!
Not only am I in love with the many
aspects of paper crafting...scrapbooking, cardmaking and altered art...but I
have to say I LOVE color! For the most part it's what attracts me to art
(and well fashion too!). I either choose the papers to revolve around the
colors in my photos or if I find papers that I really love with no coordinating
photos, I will print them out in black & white just to be able to use the
desired paper. I've even been known to stage my kids in particular outfits just
so they will coordinate with the paper I want to use lol.
So basically when I was offered the
opportunity to take over SWC, I could not have been more delighted, as
this challenge blog focuses on two of my biggest passions. I hope that you will
continue to find inspiration in our bi-monthly color-focused sketches. I look
forward to seeing what all of you create!
