Making myself feel really brilliant today, while I was working on figuring out the layout of this sketch and trying to get the measurements correct for cutting, all of a sudden I realized that the correct measurements are actually written on the sketch. I sware I spend so much time looking at the shapes on a sketch that I just didn’t notice that there were numbers, Well that made things easier. Geezes, Gina!
Sometimes I know a general idea of what I want to do for a challenge, and most of the cards I make are inspired by challenges (well it is a whole complex thing but we will just go with that for now), but I don’t know how I am going to pull it off until I find a sketch that works. That was the case with this card. Occasionally I can just put a card together without a sketch, but most of the time I do better with at least the idea of one to work with. read more
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
