What characterizes freestyle:
- White space
- Alternative products

- It is found in the word-free, bare leg
The next part of the text is written with help from an older article, written by Marie Nielsen.
Freestyle is a lot of colors, not so much journaling, creativity, play with materials, alternative recycled materials, lots of toppings and I could go on.
Freestyle is about to follow his intuition, use the materials you like and put it together as one wants. and like to spend a lot of colors. When I make a freestyle layout, I have seldom an idea of how my layout is going to look. I might have a picture I would like to scrap, or else I have something new paper I would like to use or a story I will tell. I always start by gathering all the things, I'm going to be used on the layout, spread it on my desk. It may be I go for something that suits autumn, or just happy colors. To make it easier for you to do freestyle layouts, I will show and explain what materials and marks do not go completely wrong with. Once you have assembled the base, Then, just to let creativity flow and be inspired by materials and colors.
Now we will introduce you to a couple of nice layouts, made after freestyle tank. Neither Henrietta nor I (Heidi) are classic freestylers, but we have given it a try – and it is great to freestyle. Not to sound like a cliche, but try it!
- Alternative materials (bingo cards, old book pages, shelf paper, nodepapir, paper from packages of ornaments, chewing gum or other candy wrappers, postcard)
- Syning in hand and on machines, or just sewing
- Prints, hybrid scrap
- Maler tape og washi tape
- Funny etsyfund
- Small finds from recycling, etsy, parking
- Punches (hearts, banner, stars, Birds and Others)
- Fog- and malersplats
This is all tags, who dares something. They dare to bang on the colors and create exciting designs. American Crafts is doing something nice letters and decorations.
In principle you can freestyle with all brands, because it's more a feeling than clear guidelines. But there are paper, there are more obvious than others.
