I mentioned in my last post that I was trying something new for me. It isn't revolutionary, and the rest of the crafting world figured it out long ago, but for me takes a while for the lightbulb to go on!! Despite admiring those who can impose a level of self-control in their projects (e.g. Ania Dabrowska) I always end up chucking the kitchen sink at whatever I do, which means that creating cards takes too much time. Plus I procrastinate (there's a word for you Hels!!) - or as Leonie would put it, I faff!!
my Studio L3 challenge entry. And does this new approach work? You betcha. Despite having another busy week at work I've completed another two projects and have three more partially done! Hurrah!!
Time to say thank you for all the wonderful comments - it's so good to get feedback. Hope you all enjoy the rest of the weekend. Hugs, Buttons x
ps. Thanks for the question Barbara - the flowers were simply cut from some curtain sample material (I've had hoarded for about 15 years because it might come in handy one day!!) using the smallest of the two Spellbinders Rose Creations dies. I use three layers, stick each one together with a little fast drying glue in the middle, and then use my Glitter Girls embossing tool in the middle to give them some dimension. To finish I glued some old glass beads (again, from my stash - see what you can find in the way of old necklaces at charity shops?) in the centre and added a little gold ink with a paintbrush to some of the petals. Hope this helps? If anyone wants any further deets please just leave a comment below - I'm never sure how much to ramble on about all the techniques used, and obviously for this challenge that would be unfair on TH too. x
