Lately, I have really been trying to push myself to try something a little different on each card if I can. It might be something little, but at least I want to have tried something that might not be my normal way. This time I cut my digital image differently and it really made a big difference on this card! read more
Color challenges are probably the most daunting for me. I think it has to do with the fact that I already know that there is such a big variance in how color can be perceived. Computer monitors are not all set the same, my color vision is ok but always suspect, even when I buy packages of cardstock I notice the same color will vary slightly from one pack to the next sometimes, and honestly not everyone agrees on what color mauve is anyway. read more
Oh Fall! Hurry up and get here! If it were up to me it would be fall all year long. I just don’t get along with the other seasons, as I like to call them freezing to death, allergies, and heat stroke. read more
It is so hot here that I thought I would try a bit of a psychological trick on myself today and make a fall card to see if it would help me feel cooler. It didn’t work. I guess I should have tried winter and snow. read more
I come alive in the fall. This card speaks to my heart on that level. That may sound kind of silly, but it makes a weird kind of sense to me. The colors, the movement, the pumpkins and leaves, even just the ideal of giving thanks are all things that make me happy. I think there needs to be a night scene as well to completely capture me, with dark blues and lots of stars (perhaps waiting for the great pumpkin), I assume that just didn’t make it on this card.
