Inspired By All The Little Things Featuring Jill Foster

Hello and welcome to Inspired By All The Little Things! This is a weekly inspiration challenge blog and each week we feature a wonderful designer who inspires us as an artist!

This week I have invited Jill Foster to be our guest!  Jill has been on my radar FOREVER!  She's a risk taker - always trying new techniques.  Never afraid to add swoosh of gesso or a splash of ink!  You can watch her create  on YouTube for Penny Black - always amazing!  Warning:  This may be addictive and you just might loose several hours from your day  without even realizing it!

I asked Jill to share a bit about herself...

1. What is the name of your blog? When and why did you start it?
My blog is called Studio Sessions and I started it with my amazingly talented friend, Elizabeth Allan, back in February 2014. I had been blogging on my own for several years, but Studio Sessions allowed me to create long-distance, with a fellow artistic friend, in a shared virtual studio. From planning the posts to waiting to see what each person has created using the same/similar inspiration and supplies, this has exponentially increased my enjoyment of blogging and creating just for fun!

2. What is your style of card making?
This is a tough question as I think my style can be fairly eclectic, but the one factor that typically appears on my cards is lots of color. Color makes me happy!

3. Who inspires you as a designer?

There are so many people who inspire me as a designer I can't even begin to name names, from cardmakers to artists in other "genres," I love looking at art and being wow'ed. Anyone who is brave enough to share their work with the world inspires me as there is something unique about what each person brings to their creative endeavors. I love that.

4. What sort of things inspire you as a card maker? Photos? Sketches? Other designers?
As a designer for Penny Black, I find most of my inspiration from their awesome line of stamps and dies. I'm also a Pinterest junkie and find gobs of inspiration there, too.
