Creative Blog Hop

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I was nominated for Creative Blog Hop by Jessica (All the sparkle), my team mate at A Blog Named Hero Design team. I have to nominate two others and Michelle (Handmade by Michelle) and Linda (Linda Trace designs) agreed to share their answers next week.

1. What are you working on now? 
Last week was a very busy and stressful week and I'm playing catch up this week (that is slightly less busy, but still all over the place). I have not prepared cards for this week's posts and the weather is super gloomy so it's even harder for me to work on something creative. So there are my regular posts and I have some responsibilities for A Blog Named Hero coming up. Can't share any sneak peeks unless you want to see my messy desk :/ 

2. How does your work differ from others in your genre? 
I have no idea :) I go for cute or elegant designs and I love bright colours. I don't really think I have a distinct style jet, but you are free to correct me :) 

3. Why do you create what you do? 
I'm a very creative person, but I lost that during my college years because of all my responsibilities. When I discovered YouTube and card makers over there... it was like heaven opened to me. I love it. I don't love how time flies when I make cards, but I love the end product. And to make someone happy by sending then one of my hand made cards... priceless :) 

4. How does your creative process work? 
I usually decide on type of my card that I need (birthday, thank you...), than person (if there is a specific person that I'm making my card for) and I find a stamp that works for me at that moment. Then I choose colour medium and colour scheme and go from there. If I'm not happy with it I play around with different embellishements until I'm happy :) Some cards just fall together and go exactly like I imagined, some need a bit more time. It's a different process everytime.

Današnja druga objava je del poskakovanja po blogih s štirimi glavnimi vprašanji: 

1. S čim se trenutno ukvarjaš? 
Prejšnji teden je bil malce hektičen, tako da se moram najprej malo dohitet, saj nimam pripravljenih še nobenih stvari za objave v tem tednu, prav tako pa mi vreme trenutno prav nič ne pomaga, saj tudi normalnih fotografij ne morem narediti. Na žalost ne morem delit nobenih drobcev umetnin v nastajanju, razen če želite videti mojo razmetano mizo :/ 

2. Kako se tvoje delo razlikuje od ostalih? 
Pravzaprav ne vem čisto točno. Običajno se nagibam k simpatičnemu ali elegantnemu izgledu, prav tako pa imam zelo rada svetle in živahne barve. Nisem čisto prepričana v katero kategorijo bi moje stvari lahko sodile. 

3. Zakaj delaš to, kar delaš? 
Zato, ker sem želela ponovno obuditi kreativno osebo, ki se je v letih na faksu kar malce potisnila na stran. Preprosto mi je všeč od trenutka, ko sem svet voščilnic (ponovno) odkrila, po drugi strani pa je zelo dober občutek, ko nekdo prejme tvojo, ročno izdelano voščilnico ob prav posebni priložnosti. 

4. Kako deluje tvoj kreativni proces? 
Običajno imam izbrano temo za voščilnico in glede na osebo, ki bo voščilnico prejela (če sem v takšni situaciji), izberem glavno podobo in nato barvni medij, barvno shemo in tako naprej. Če mi nekaj ne deluje povsem v redu, se malce igram z različnimi dodatki, dokler nisem zadovoljna. Nekatere voščilnice mi kar "padejo" skupaj, včasih pa potrebujem dlje časa in več poskusov, da sem zadovoljna. Zelo različno. 

I hope you enjoyed reading some things about me and if you want to, you are more than welcome to answer these questions on your blog and share them with me. 

Upam, da ste z veseljem prebrali moje odgovore in če želite, lahko tudi vi odgovorite na vprašanja in delite svoje odgovore z menoj. 

Have a great day!

Želim vam čudovit dan! 

Mateja
