My Resume

 

Leah Farquharson                                                                                

My philosophy: Artistic expression is a part of *who I am*. Not only do I have to have creative outlets, but I thoroughly enjoy them! Scrapbooking gives me the opportunity to combine so many of the things I love, at the same time giving me the chance to tell our family story, celebrate the things in our lives, and speak to my loved ones. I discovered scrapbooking almost 3 years ago, and I've got a really laid back attitude. I scrap whatever strikes my fancy at the moment, and don't stress over all the photos that I don't have scrapped. In fact, some just make their way into albums!

I've recently started to do more digital scrapbooking, and have really started to love hybrid scrapping - since I can combine the best of both worlds!!

My Style: I've sorta settled on "Vintage Modern". LOL. I usually start with clean, bold colors and lines, then throw in a few vintagey elements like flourishes, stitching or buttons.

My Method: It usually starts for me as a story that I want to tell.  Then I find or take a picture that best illustrates my story. Paper, embellishments, and techniques all follow.

My Objective: To share the joy that comes from scrapbooking with others.  To encourage others to share *their story*. To teach locally. To take part in Design Teams. To publish my work.  To inspire others.

Education: I've taken several Photoshop classes (all three levels of Jessica Sprague's - gotta love her!), and various art classes (sketching, ceramics) but mostly, I just love art. So, books on photography, graphic design, color theory, and art history all make their way onto my reading list. :) My hubby lovingly refers to me as his "art nerd."
