My mom made this scene to look like a lake near where I live, called Whiskeytown Lake. Whiskeytown Lake is one of the most beautiful locations around here. The water is always a crisp blue and dotted with these little tree covered islands. It's great fun to go kayaking there, because there are all kinds of fun little inlets to explore. She really captured the look of the lake by using the tree lined bank images from Life is Good.
I asked mom to answer a few questions so you could get to know her a little better...
How long have you been stamping and how did you get started?
I've been stamping for about two years. My daughter Brenda was really into making cards and tags. She would share her supplies and show me how to do different techniques.
What are your favorite kinds of projects/techniques?
My favorite project is making cards but I do like making other projects like luminaries, tags and bookmarks. My favorite technique is sponging. I really like the effect of sponging and masking off to create different looks. But I do like to try new things.
Do you enjoy challenges and, if so, what are your favorites and why?
Yes, I do love the challenges and I really like the sketch, potluck and the blast from the past. But I like most all of the challenges.
What inspires you in your crafting?
I get my inspiration from a lot of different things. Nature, like the sky and the mountains. Sometimes a magazines or newspaper. Other card makers and mostly Theresa's tutorials are a great help to get me inspired.
