So, I'm here with friendly reminder that August is already half over and you need to spend a few minutes exploring the FREE Summer classroom at Big Picture Scrapbooking. This is a promotion that we do every year and this year Lisa Damrosch, one of our featured teachers shares a source of personal inspiration in the work of photographer Chase Jarvis. Lisa introduced me to Chase several months ago and I've really enjoyed popping onto his blog and following along from time to time, so I thought I'd give you a few additional chances to get to know his work better.
First up is a teaser video that posted on YouTube to promote a talk Chase gave this past June in Denver, CO.
Careful: It has a surprise ending!
Because I love to run (at least on most days) I am very fond of this video that Chase produced for Laura. Laura (who I do not know) lives and runs in Seattle. Some of the footage is shot at Gas Works Park, which sits directly across Lake Union from the city. The kids and I were just there a week ago (with the Lambsons) In fact, I finished a scrapbook page Wednesday morning with pictures that Taft took at Gas Works. I dropped my layouts off with Angie Lucas yesterday and she and Ella are going to do something very FUN with them, but I digress … back to Laura.
If you have time, WATCH this last video. This is the talk that Chase gave at the Art Director's Club of Denver. It's long, but I LOVE listening to stuff like this while I scrapbook.
I'm just exceptionally grateful for inspiring people and for the Internet that allows me free access to their inspiration.
Geoff and I are in Utah this weekend, with his best friend (collage roommate) Nolan and his wife. This will be our third year, meeting up with them at BYU for Education Week. I'll be soaking up inspiration ALL Day.
