Hey everyone. I'm back again. One minute you don't see me for dust and the next you can't get rid of me! As you know, the reason for me being MICA (Missing in Crafty Action!) is that I was making Wedding Invitations for my Brother, Jay and Karen's pending nuptials this upcoming Summer. But, now that I have completed all their wedding invitations and the wee boxes they were individually posted in, I have a bit more time to focus on other crafty things. So what did I do with my new found freedom.....I made an RSVP card for Jay and Karen's wedding. Go figure! Anyway, about the Wedding Invitations ..........I hopefully will be showing them shortly. I'm so excited for them both. I still have a lot more things to make for the actual wedding day but they can't be shared until after July.
On to the cards. I seem to have made A LOT of cards lately. What is going on? I'm not a card maker! I saw a tutorial from the incredibly talented Jennifer McGuire (boy if I could make cards like her, I'd be able to call myself a card maker, lol). She was using the Tim Holtz Distress Markers to colour a stamped image, but she was using the markers as water colours. Now, I am RUBBISH at colouring (pre-schoolers can colour better than me!), but this video inspired me to have a go. If you want to see how its done properly, the link to Jennifer's video is HERE.
So, this is it. My little cards that I made, which were actually surprisingly quick to make. I'm pretty chuffed with them considering my extreme lack of talent with cards and colouring. And honestly, I'm not phishing for compliments. I know I can't colour and my cards are very simple when I actually make them. In fact, I'm so bad at colouring and drawing that when it came to selecting my subjects for my GCSE's, my art teacher told me that under no circumstances was I to even consider picking art as I couldn't draw a straight line with a ruler! Charming! He was totally right of course, I was completely hopeless at drawing and colouring. But thankfully art isn't just about a bit of drawing and colouring. I had a very creative mind and could pretty much make anything from nothing. But ask me to draw even a Stick Man, well, that's when things got complicated, lol. The poor wee guy looked like a bus had driven over him, reversed and drove over him again! Anywhoodles, thankfully I didn't let his comments stop me from creating. Though I was also very aware of my limitations and not a complete stubborn numpty........so I decided to pick Music instead of Art, lol.
I hope you have a wonderful crafty day, whatever you are creating and wherever you are. Oh Looksie, I don't know whether you've noticed or not.....but Spring is here....kinda! Woowhoo!
