I’ve made a few attempt to sit and create over the past few weeks but with no success. My Mojo still hasn’t come back after my ‘family issues’ which is a shame as I was on a roll till everything happened. I’ve printed up some challenges, sat down and looked at them and had no idea what to create. Couldn’t even select a stamp set for a colour combo or a sketch. Instead I’ve been doing lots of reading. I love books but I’m running out of storage space for them all and I really don’t like going to the library and borrowing books. I’d rather own them. So what did I do? I finally converted over and purchased myself a Kindle and I love it. I’ll be purchasing all future books this way unless it’s only available in paper…… I’ve have managed to put it down for a little while though and try and get creating again.
Earlier today I printed up 2 pages of challenges for sites that I like to participate in hoping to get back in the swing of things. I then decided to pull out all my new Autumn/Winter Mini sets as I need to start using these before they aren’t available anymore. I know that sounds odd as they have only just been released but unless my mojo comes back in leaps and bounds I many not get around to using them enough which would be a shame especially if they don’t end up in our next Idea Book & Catalogue 2011|2012 which will be released on 1st September.
I decided I could create something using these colours and this sketch using the new French Foliage stamp set.
This is what I came up with.
So what do you think??
Stamp sets: French Foliage, You’re A Gem
Card: Cajun Craze, Poppy Parade, Very Vanilla, In Color Patterns Stack (Poppy Parade), Regal Patterns Stack (Cajun Craze & More Mustard)
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, Poppy Parade, Cajun Craze, More Mustard
Accessories: Regal Brads (Cajun Craze), 1 3/8” Square Punch, Linen Thread, Mat Pack & Paper Piercing Tool, Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Till next time……Nikki
