LESSology Challenge #9: Guest designer Heather Jacob


Photobucket

We are delighted to have the talented Heather Jacob as our guest designer for LESSology Challenge #9 Inspiration Board! :)

I was so thrilled and excited when I was asked to be a guest designer on this fabulous innovative site called LESSOLOGY … super, duper awesome !!! thank you so much Angi and Yvonne for having me.
I adore incorporating up-cycled items in my work … it truly stretches me out of my comfort zone. I was asked to create an inspiration board !!!! soooooooooo I decided to turn a CANVAS inside out and create a design adding pockets to hold tags with affirmations … my intention is to choose a tag each day for myself to inspire me throughout the day . I will change the tags each week and I will be adding more tags throughout the year with inspiring affirmations ..
 


 My name is Heather Jacob, I am passionate about all things arty . I live in Australia in the capital city of South Australia … Adelaide .. I am blissfully married to my supportive soul-mate Baden and our treasured family are all featured throughout my work .
To me this craft is the perfect combination of art, photography, beautiful paper glorious words and complete freedom to express myself .. I can incorporate all the arts and crafts I love in one hobby…My books are a reflection of my life, my history, my family and my friends . Also who I was yesterday and who I am today. I am inspired by color and texture.. I love to include stitching, chipboard, journaling, fabrics, metal elements, inking, masking, texture paste and of course “RECYCLED ITEMS “….
Off the page projects, altered ART, tags,cards and minibooks are all faves of mine .. My style is “classic” with attention to detail often leaning towards monochromatic themes with a little shabby chic thrown in .

I chose to create a board using a canvas turned inside out ...

 

I used an old lace  doilie from a second hand shop as my upcycled item and also there is a button and a small piece of muslin tucked under the strip of paper where the Eiffel Tower is situated.

I have created some tags with affirmations and will be adding to them over the year ..
my intention is to have 7 tags in the pockets each week and pull out one every day for inspiration on that particular day ....
then add some different ones for the following week .. a rotation kind of idea ... 


Isn't this a splendid idea for an inspiration board? Just gorgeous work Heather! Please leave a comment for our guest Heather.
