Half way through the week already? A few posts ago I said that I thought snow slowed. I might be about to change my mind on that one...
I have completed the next two cards for the 52 Card Challenge.
Week Three: Using the colour palette:
Pink, aqua and green. With some older October Afternoon, a tag from a Quirky Kit and butterflies cut with a Martha Stewart punch and my Slice
It's good fun working small and I'm learning as I go
- making scraps work on a card isn't the same thing as forcing something to go where it doesn't look right. Sometimes you just have to put it back in your box of bits and choose a different decoration instead.
- Often what you can't really see is as important as the most obvious elements. I'm discovering how to add subtle touches (inking in pale grey round edges to add definition in the top card). Funny, I do stuff like that all the time when I'm scrapbooking.
- I can foresee a time when all my embellishments are sorted and stored by colour: no more jars of buttons and tins of brads. Instead, everything small and red goes together.
- I need to buy some larger acrylic blocks. A CD case isn't going to cut it for much longer.
Week Four: Paper from a Paper Pad
which is mostly hidden here, but which did get me pulling out more of my older October Afternoon. I've been saving that little girl sticker - she looks so like The (Not So) Small One just before she started school.
And that's me for today. I'm off to spend some time with an old friend and I'm hoping we're going to party like it's 1984..
