My usual experiments have re-started with the beginning of a New Year.
With all the experiments I did last year I learnt that I love creating different genres of cards. I love the shabby chic style of cards and it’s one style I want to create more of this year, I’m still learning how to do the techniques and look of that. I also love CAS cards, talk abut being a bit odd lol! CAS is a little easier for me to create but I am a klutz with inks and paints. I regularly spill or get an inky fingerprint on what starts out as a CAS card. I have learnt to embrace it and I’ve learnt how to fix it instead of fighting it. I also love mixed media cards, especially mixed media that is creating with minimal layers, only one or two at most. As I said I have learnt to embrace all of this lol!
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
