Punky Scraps Blog Hop!!

After a LOOOONG hiatus I am finally back!! Nothing new yet but I am so excited to be a part of the Punky Scraps Blog Hop (we took a hiatus there too). You should have come here from Emilie Chamel's blog. Next you will want to go to Jolanda Simons' blog. Remember you should have started at the Punky Scraps blog and when you get to Nat's blog you will have the opportunity to win a DT spot on Punky Scraps!! There are also other prizes to be won along the way!

So if you're new to Punky Scraps I am Ashley Van Etten. I am turning 26 this month. I work at a call center but I am hoping to finally finish my degree in Human Resources soon. I just recently got engaged which is part of the reason that I haven't been very involved in scrapping lately. However since I also just quit smoking (hopefully for the last time ever!) I desperately need to get back to scrapping as it is an awesome stress release for me.

These are some of my favorite layouts that use lots of mists and painting techniques. My favorite technique is using gesso and mists together.

My preferred style of scrapping is of course anything to do with paints and mists. If I don't get my fingers dirty I don't feel like I created anything special. Now of course that's not for everyone but it is for me!

Every once in a while I like to do something different. This layout I went more for a graphic look. I still used mists a little but I kept it light and focused on the patterned papers, shapes, and colors.

I also LOVE zen doodling. It really is ridiculously relaxing. Especially since I can get most of it done at work between calls!!

The last thing I love to do is create mixed media pieces. I don't do these so often but I do plan to get more into it. I was inspired by Starry Night by Van Gogh when I created this.

Well that's it from me! I can't wait to see you guys at the challenges and I am so excited to see what you all come up with! Next stop is the remarkably talented Jolanda Simons' blog.
