Inspired by Finnabair

Like so many others, I got inspired by Finnabair. She has a wonderful mixed media style that makes the photo and all the embelishments just melt together into a whole. Her creations are the great foundation for my steampunk love. When I saw her steampunk layout in a Swedish magazine, I only knew that I wanted to do something similar so I created this in october last year.
With a huge disappointment, I gave up on this stile. It did not look anywhere near like hers. It took another few months until I began to find my style and I must admit that it's more fun to create from my own brain than to imitate someone else (especially when it is not even near as good). But this weekend, I got inspired by her again and made two layouts. The result was pretty good, but I realize I can not have such strong spray paints (that's what I normally use) so now I have to buy some glimmer mists. Well what do you think? This steamy one was beautiful before I sprayed it, but I have learnt my lesson. That's the fun thing about creating and life it self. You learn from your misstakes. (maybe that will be the theme for my next artjournal page)
I will show you the pink one another day.

I think you're right. When we try to copy the style of someone else we frequently end up messing around and with a huge headache! Though we can use them as an inspiration and learning process ;-D
Your layouts are beautiful, very steampunk style . I know Finnabair's work from a while ago and she's fabulous but in my case, I wouldnt dare to copy her!! You're very brave and your result is great! tfs, Vron

Jeg er mer enn forelsket i det du laget. Og den der skjønne møllen du har brukt der, hvor har du fått fatt i den? Jeg har lett og lett selv ser du.
Fantastiske farger spesielt i den nederste LOen din.

Klem Renate

Utrolig stilig!! Spesielt den siste var lekker!
Og det er ikke lett å få det til som henne, men synes du har fått det til på en utmerket måte!!
