Anyway, I've been crafting up a storm the past few days, however, the fruits of my labours are looking a bit *meh* - not all, but some. Perhaps I'm in recovery mode of some fashion, too, given that our week has been super hectic. Work has been catch-up and keep-up; we headed into the city for an appointment I had - our usual 1 hour drive turned into 2 - each way; the appointment rattled my nerves (long story...won't bore you with details); I was a day ahead of myself beginning Wednesday...and now that Friday's here, I'm looking over my shoulder wondering where the time has gone! Still, I've carried on with my card-making, and even if things have been a bit "miss and toss" the act of 'doing' has been rewarding!
This post's 'featured' card is my entry to Unscripted Sketches #216, and after a fair bit of "hmmm-ing" about whether or not I should give it a go, I remembered a lesson from the Pattern Play online course. Kristina Werner shared a most scrumptious card to showcase this tip: "Break up really large patterns and let them take center stage as the background, keeping the rest of the card very simple." Her card involved patterned paper cut into strips - and when I saw US 216, the wheels began to turn.
The next little trigger was Gretchen's card that you can see here (I'll wait while you look), and since that rather zany paper is one I can call my own (it was in my 'stymied by this' stash), the decision was sealed. Play time!!
Here's US #216
and here's my Pattern Play 'lesson' turned into action. Be warned: this paper is bit 'hectic'- striking, but definitely hectic - so I fully understand if you glance and go. Hopefully the black/white/pink 'solids' turn the volume down a bit...
Thanks so much for dropping by; please let me know your did! Your comments are welcome and appreciated, immensely!!
