(one canvas one soul)
J.ajabad is a nickname that I've had since high school and I have since used it as my artist/pen name. It has evolved over time but it's a play on my first and last name. The J. is my first initial.
I'm an artist and poet by well, can I call it a trade?! I maintain a blog that "draws" all the arts together and that has been condensed just this past year from a site and blog combo to just my blog.
I would say my scrapbooking style is hybrid since I still have my tradition scrapbook stash. I have made a few of my own paper backgrounds just by experimenting in my art journal and so far I have used a few of those in my pieces. Hopefully, I can make my own digi papers soon. I love paper and I always will.
I'm a history major who loves vintage items and loves how the study of history is essentially a time machine.
I had to redo this piece because when I first resized it I thought it looked too bloated.
I arranged the elements on my cell via piccollage and the original piece uwas too small to uploade here.
The flower inside the frame was a paper craft. I used my square punch and rounded corner punch to make the petals.The center piece is my initial.I stitched the stem. I used Taiwan floral pattern for bkgd, flowers and the "blossom" label. Also a Vienna frame holds the flower in place.
My favorite paper craft tool is my square punch. In case anyone was curious, LOL!
