the process.

Lately I've been fascinated by the creative process. Love seeing behind the scenes photos of how people make different things. Because I don't have an expansively neat & tidy studio with fantastic bits of inspiration plastered neatly on the walls, I have been hesitant to share photos of my process. My desk is always messy-except for one time right before Thanksgiving 2010 when I asked to clean it. Proof:

I have decided that this year I will make more of an effort to put things back where they really belong (which is much easier said than done). So please don't judge my mess as I share with you the process of creating this layout for Studio Calico's Sunday Sketch:


I used Studio Calico's Who's Who kit (sorry it's sold out), American Crafts thickers, washi tape, paint & a q-tip (mainly because I couldn't find a paintbrush) to make the dots. I hope sharing my mess doesn't turn too many of you away, thanks for looking!
