Just A Note With Roses.
I am really a sucker for all things roses as any semi-regular visitor to my wee blog would have gleaned. So it never took any amount of arm twisting for me to use a rose crafting item or three. This card is my attempt to use my mists and sprays in a more controlled fashion as is currently being taught in the now running Online Card Classes called Kick Start. The day's theme was all about organizing your ideas, but I am hopelessly disorganized and it would seem attention deficit disordered as well when it comes to following along patiently. Yes, I was mesmerised by the pretty pictures and just got stuck into creating in my trademark will-nilly fashion. Incorrigible, I know. The lesson was also around water coloring with sprays and mists from an embossed watercolour paper base. You, will have no doubt guessed that all I heard was blah, blah, blah, blah, blah from having looked at my card. (No slight intended to those who skillfully and lovingly prepared this top notch lesson, by the way) Needless to say I didn't follow instruction one and have ended up with this card. I know it will never be a poster child for the lesson, but it was devilishly fun going rogue and free-styling a bit. Let's be honest, that's me down to the ground though, isn't it? Never follows the instructions and wonders why I end up with a sparkly dog's breakfast? LOL That's okay, I'm happy to be one of the black sheep of the papercrafting world. Hehe.
Thanks so much for visiting and allowing me to share with you just a little bit of the quasi-controlled chaos that's in this crafty, addled brain of mine. Here's to an inspired and joyous day for us all!
