Cardmaking

Hello everyone.  I have been very slack about posting lately and I apologise.  No real excuse – just life getting in the way.  Plus I am trying not to use my computer too much at home, just to give my eyeballs a break from screen-time.  Which means I have about eight thousand emails waiting for me right now.  There’s probably bills in there.  Oh well.  I will get to them soon enough, possibly when they turn my power off or cut my water supply.

I have been crafting when I can.  The weekends go by so quickly and the evenings after work just don’t seem to be the right time for me to get my art on.  I am tired and squinty and headachey.  And lazy, to be honest.  So I try and utilise my weekends, which isn’t always easy when you have other commitments to take care of.  I don’t include housework in that.  I think we all know that is very much at the bottom of my “to do” list!

I haven’t made any cards for AGES.  Last weekend I decided to make a few, just to get me over my crappy-collage-why-is-nothing-working-phase.  Working on cards means no base-coating or varnishing or anything that takes too much prep.  And working to a nice small scale always feels right to me – I’m not very good at larger projects.  Even most of my collages are less than 8″ x 8″.  Cards are a prefect size.

These are the three I made one afternoon and I am reasonably happy with them.  Especially the octopus (even if cutting out all those legs was a bit migraine-inducing!).

More of an exercise in “just getting on with it” than an attempt at perfection, I just wanted to makes some quick little pieces that would help me get back into a crafting groove.  Sometimes you need to change things up a little.

Hope you are all having a happy, creative day.

Thank you for stopping by x

  1. Love them all. I hope you feel a little unstuck and can find satisfaction with collages again. Or more wondrous cards. Dianne

    1. Ha ha – thanks 🙂 I am useless with a knife so I have to always use scissors for fussy-cutting. I quite like it…it’s therapeutic 🙂
