(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.
Being the night owl that I am I decided to edit a photo of my poetry journal through my pixlr express app (my favorite cell app). I used "inked" the pages, added a floral frame, and then used a warm vintage and photostrip type filter. I added the short poem because I felt the page needed something else.
After I finished the photo edit I thought it would be fun to scrap the piece. The flower and scalloped edges are papers from my physical paper stash that I decided to backup. I rotated the layout template so it would fit the dimensions of my photo and then mixed and matched the papers in hopes of fitting the color schemes and theme of my overall piece.
