Spotlight on It-Girl: Christine Ousley

Please join us as we welcome It-Girl Christine Ousley into the Embellish-Online Blog Spotlight!

1. Describe your style in 5 words or less.....

Clean, graphic, linear, and cute

2. What is your favorite embellishment or technique right now and why?

Just one? Ribbon has always been a favorite of mine for embellishing but I also love to put texture and chipboard on there as well. Really I am just one of those girls who likes it all.

3. What time of day are you most creative?!

I am most creative mid-afternoon. I have always been more of a middle o the day person rather than a morning or night person. Of course that always seems to coincide with kids coming home from school and dinner needing to be made so I usually start much earlier or work later in the night but that is when I feel most of my ideas start to roll.

4. Ideas come at unexpected moments like when....

I am falling asleep. Usually by that time the contacts are out, I can't see and I am too tired to get back out of bed to write them down. So I usually forget a lot of them but some I remember in the morning. :)

5. Are you a planner or a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants sort of creator?!

I am very much of a planner though sometimes my projects work better in the end if I start with a plan and then roll with it.

6. Your favorites right now:

~Book: The Time Traveler's Wife
~Music: James Blunt
~Movie: A Good Year
~Snack: M & M's and gotta have my Starbuck's Frappuccinos.
