I am not sure what the path is going to lead to, but I am stepping away from challenges, contests, DT calls, etc. for now and going to focus more on doing my own thing. I am going to get back to creating for my heart, because I don't feel good when I am not. I am not going to concern myself with judgement, other than my own. If at the end of a project, it makes me smile, then that is how I will know I have done a good job, that will be my reward.
I have some ideas of things I would like to try here and I always love the feedback of my readers. I hope that you all feel comfortable enough to be honest with me. If there are things you would like more information on, something you have seen me do, please never hesitate to ask. I love to share, often I take for granted that techniques I use are common knowledge, when that may not be the case.
Now, if you read all that blabber, you totally rock. If you just skimmed it, I still think you rock and if you just scrolled to the photos and then tried to find the key words in the paragraphs to try and find which one referenced the projects, you are still a rock star in my book. I have those days too.
Here is a layout I started at a crop the other night. I did use pieces from the June kit from For The Luv Of Art. I love the stamps that are unique to this kit and site only. The pictures are grainy, but I wanted them that way. They are photos of the bookshelves, the coffee table, and my bedside table, where we have tons of books piled.
It is hard to discern from the picture, but this is on Co'redinations card stock, which I sanded under the stamped images to reveal the darker pink underneath. The journaling block and rub ons, (I believe), are My Mind's Eye, the bottom ribbon is Prima, while the other two are left overs and the one at the bottom is part of the FTLOA kit, the buttons are Webster's, the black letters are Thickers, and the chipboard heart is a random piece from the Target Dollar Spot that I used the back of, (the other side is red checked), colored with a marker, covered with Stickles and Diamond Glaze, and raised with dimensional adhesive.
