well, looking back, that wasn't much of a post yesterday regarding all our weekend festivities. to tell you the truth, i was exhausted and little bit snarky. all i wanted was to be left alone. i even turned down a trip to michael's because i just could not stand to be on a schedule yesterday.
instead of working on my superbowl costume - which i will have to do on thursday - i did laundry, dishes, and putzed around with my paper products. the first half of the day was a bust. i wanted SOOOOOO badly to make something - anything - that i was moving too fast and was unfocused and i pretty much effed up everything i touched.
i took a break around 3 to run an errand and got focused. i came back to the studio and did a much better job exploring a technique i had been interested in trying. if the pieces don't look too bad when i look at them again tonight, pictures will follow.
i hit the mother of all digital collage sheet sales on etsy last week and loaded up. it gave me a lot to play with.
after my debacle yesterday - and then rebound - i realized that i as much as i thought i would like collage - i really like stamping better - and i think i am better at it. of course, the trick is to combine both techniques, and for that, i am still learning.
so, for today i will show you some cards i made with the collage sheets i bought. the bottom 3 have been given away. the top one is still up for grabs.
parisian beauty card
monster bombshell card
and, finally, i went by the ogden to drop of more postcards on saturday ( the staff bought everything i took them the first time around) and was able to get a little pic of the display they have out for my work.
pretty nifty, huh?
i realize that this is all so new to me - the paper crafting business - i really have no idea what i am doing. i never really intended to sell anything, but folks liked it enough to ask, so i thought i would try it.
i also realize i am a better jewelry artist than paper artitist, but it is something i love and i will continue to explore.
but not now. now i have to get to work....
