Yes well it's not perfect and I've added to it since I made it last night, but at least I've made a start! I've got more images printed out, so you never know you might see more cards.
Oh and I think I've worked out why my Mojo / inspiration / enthusiasm for making has been so absent. A combination of colouring envy (have you seen the amazing colourers there are out in the blogworld?); knock to confidence (I applied for a few different DTs and got a knock back for all of 'em); not getting anywhere in any of the challenges I've entered this year (another knock to confidence) and finally not selling my cards (still more confidence knocking).
So I went off into a miserable spiral of feeling sorry for myself and thinking what crap my cards are, pathetic or what!
Anyway I think I've wallowed long enough, so I've given myself a good shake and am going to stop trying to compare myself to this, that or the other person. So what if I'm no good at colouring, it's what makes me happy. I'm on DT's and I've been on others - so my cards can't be that bad, can they?
I'm also going to make the effort to start blogging again - I have missed you all.
And here is the first card made with my resolutions in mind:
- I coloured with my Promarkers.
- The image is Beachy Tia from Some Odd Girl
- Papers are We Are Memory Keepers - Whiteout
- Embellies: - I made the little lace flower, the swirl is from Create and Craft, brad from The Hobby House.
- A nestie made the frame.
I'm off now to enter a challenge, or maybe two.
Oh, and no progress on the extension last week - no builder! He's due here tomorrow for the next week though, so hopefully next week I'll have more pictures.
A challenge, or two:
Some Odd Girl - August Sketch Challenge
