Mimi Leinbach: What's my style?

When I heard the challenge for this month, to name our style I went into a bit of panic mode. What is my style, hmmmm...I have a hard time saying I have a particular style. If you asked me this question 2 years ago, my answer would have been very different so this is what I narrowed it down to. Evolving! I sometimes create in a very simplistic and linear style.

I love color, the bolder and brighter the better! I have to say that in my mind, to much color is never enough.

My style has really changed quite a bit in the last year...I think we can blame Christy and the Mixed Media Store for that. She has inspired me to do things that I NEVER would have tried because I would have been scared to make a mistake. Now I know that a mistake may be just what a projects needs to make it special!

I started my first art journal...oh, how fun! I never was one to use many stamps. I always felt an image had to be just perfect for it to be right, boy was I wrong...there is not a single perfectly stamped image on these pages and I love it anyway. I have to say it is very freeing to feel that way when I create.

I even did my first canvas this year, so my art is sometimes off the page now! I made this canvas for one of my nieces. I must say they are very happy I ventured further into the mixed media world! They reap the rewards of getting my fingers dirty.

So what I know about my style is that it is what it is today...and may very well be something else tomorrow. And I just love that!
