I am going to start by blogging and adding cards, until all of my creations for the last 3 months are posted. My goal is to post a new card regularly with Journey supplies and some wonderful finds along the way, maybe revisit some old ones too. Hopefully I will post more often than not.
I always create on the fly. I see a stamp, play with it, color it, then design the card. Sometimes, I color and stamp an image many times before it lands on a card. Sometimes it just happens! Thus, I named this Little Bits: documented moments of creative spark, because that is truly what my card making entails, a spark!!! A light goes on, it works, or it doesn't. It is good therapy and I feel better and calmer, even if the final project lands in the trash. But if I lucky it will bring a spark to someones day.
My first group of cards I would like to share is the mixed media, Tim Holtz inspired creations. I wanted to play with just backgrounds, and to use my new distress colors, Cracked Pistachio and Abandoned Coral. So I made a few, on different papers, with different distress products (ink pads, re-inkers, pens, paint, and stain. I stamped, spritzed, dipped, water colored, and inked. Then taking the best created these three cards. Enjoy and will post again tomorrow. Josette
