Cards, Creative Tips, Gloriously 60 Art Challenge

Gloriously 60 Day 40 Art – Hello Sunshine

Hi Angels!

Good news, my album is ready to decorate after class tonight the ‘eh’ news is my card is just so-so. I was playing with a new die & some scraps.

I was looking for a particular doily die & picked up a couple of more in the process. The one on tonight’s card is from the Scrap Man & is called Ethno Doily 2. It’s really pretty.

So after years & years of creating every once in a while I make a card and go “that’s okay but” and that’s perfectly fine. I still like the card, I’ll still send it to make someone happy. You don’t have to be top of your game all the time when you create.

I’m a bit tired & on creative overload after concentrating on the album class. I create because it’s just part of what makes me, me. And of course I needed something to post for my challenge today.

I literally was just trying a bit & that for this card design. I wanted a more classic darker blue for the red polka dots but it just really dragged the card down. Then the brighter blue was too plain. I added ink dots & it helps. If I really thought the card was awful it would have hit the trash.

Another lesson, you don’t have to try to salvage or live with something. Most paper only costs a few cents and except for the cardbase this card was made with all scraps from other projects. Practice & play does not always lead to a great creation but it’s very necessary to get to that great creation. So tonight was more of a play date, working out an idea & it’s just okay but not over the top.

I think a good night’s rest in is order & tomorrow I can come play in the studio refreshed & ready to design for my next class & decorate my album.

Play, Practice, Stumble a bit, Soar even more, Create & Inspire!

Comments are a blessing.
