Hello and welcome everyone
I am so thrilled to be Guest designing here at INKIDO
thank you so much for having me .
My name is Heather Jacob and I live in Australia
To me this craft is the perfect combination of art, photography, beautiful paper, and glorious words.
I especially love to choose some elements, cast a spell and see what happens, to create a dream and follow it through. Subtle shadows, light and color are all ingredients for casting the spell. I am in harmony with my garden and its inhabitants, connecting with the beauty that surrounds me. For me it is all-consuming, inspiring and a natural expression of my inner self, which I love to weave into my works.
I am inspired by colour and texture … I love to include stitching, chipboard, journaling, muslin, fabrics, metal elements, inking, masking and texture paste.
Off the page projects and altered art are a fave of mine. I see my style as “CLASSIC” with layering and attention to detail…I tend to lean toward monochromatic themes with a little shabby chic/grunge thrown in .. I feel very lucky to be on a number of design teams and my work has been widely published.
For my first project I have created a layout showcasing a banner
with lots of layers and blooms .
I have a passion for gardening and nature
and often include blooms in my layouts .
I love to create lots of different shapes and layer them
to create dimension and interest .
Pink roses are clustered among the layers .
pictured below is a selection of the beautiful papers I received in the mail
and have created my projects from these with great delight .
Beautiful Memories II
I will be back next month with another project.
thanks for popping by and I hope I have inspired you to create with these delish papers.
