Creativity is back...
at least for the moment. :) I hate to admit it...but I love to be under pressure. I mistakenly missed a deadline on a swap. So I had to quickly make the recipe cards and of course I am very creative when I am under pressure. I guess it is because I cannot put it off. I read the book about a month ago, but I wasn't quite sure how to make the recipe cards. I find them harder to do than regular cards. I always wantt o put cool embellishments that match--but for some reason I can never think of anything.
The other day I had printed out a picture of one of my stamping friend's dog that she put up in the gallery. I wanted to make her a card. So while watching a movie with Sheldon last night I started to get an idea. First I asked Sheldon to draw and cut me out some wings. Then I used some new bling that I received from my SS. After that I decided to find some paper to use....I wanted to keep the background simple and had to decide on whether to use the black or pink for the mat. I am glad that I used the pink behind the dog which I ran through my cuttlebug. It took me a couple of choices on which direction to place image as the wings are way too big. Then because I cut off her front feet because they looked weird, I had to cover them up and I had a great sentiment from SU that I had froma previous project.
Thanks for listening to me ramble. You can see why I keep most of my creative process under wraps.
Have a great day. Jennie
