My name is Aaron and I am here to both teach and learn. First, I’ll give you a little bit of information about me and then I’ll tell you why you should care about this blog.
I’m going to be 30 next year, I’m a good 100 pounds overweight, and I’m going bald. Prince Charming, eh? Oh, well…I’ve accepted my imperfections and Im here to help you do the same thing. I started crafting as a kid and segued into scrapbooking as an adult. After my son was born, I found myself with little time to craft and when I did, the projects were always about my son and were never things that challenged me creatively. Enter art journaling, or as I like to call it,”inspiration journaling”. In my inspiration journal, I’m free to experiment and mess up. I can make a mess and call the results “art”.
Why did I call this blog “Imperfect Impulses”? I believe that it’s the mistakes we make in crafts that makes our crafts art. So many scrapbookers are obsessed with perfection, with straight lines, perfect frames, and EVERYTHING revolves around the almighty die cutting machine. Imperfect Impulses is here to help you embrace those ideas that you think may not work or may not look perfect. If you strive for imperfection, you’ll never fail.
Why should you care about this blog and/or taking my classes at Scrappin’ Time? I’ll teach you how to embraces your imperfections, to spill your emotions into your work, and to keep you inspired. We will learn all about art or inspiration journaling and use our journals to learn techniques that will help with scrapbooking, mixed media projects, and just about everything else you will work on.
Stay tuned for pictures and dates for the first class!
