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
