card making

I stared at the blank screen for some time, I knew I had an idea, but that idea was not coming through loud and clear.  So I went in search of a picture, since I had already put in a title, I looked into the files where I have put some of the photos of cards I’ve done, when the urge hit to take a picture for my files.

Typically I do something admire it for a few minutes and let it go.

This bird arrived the other day,  I played around, stamping the image, and then cutting it out before colouring it.

These pictures are not done to perfection, I was taking them just to capture the “idea’ Being a perfectionist at times, when I have to go back and look at something that I just did candidly, not with an intent, I’m often surprised at this side of me.  I lean towards lazy.  Where I began doing the cards on a lark, since I never really wanted to do cards for a pastime.  However, be careful with your projects.  The cute stamps and dies, soon had me thinking about what I could do with them.  Being the “artist” that I am, I was not interested in what other people have done with them, but rather, what I  want to do.  So…. of course, I end up with some weird combination.  But.. I like them and that is all that matters.

Rocky the crab really caught my attention.. so after I found Crabby here (Xmas card), I had to search high and low for a supplier that had Rocky on hand.  Heaven forbid that I wait for an order to come in.  That is the stubborn streak in me.

This is Rocky, totally different designer. Who knew that playing with dies,stamps and card stock could be so much fun.

PL Precept #1  Life is Art

PL Precept # 2   To live is to Express One’s Self

Every action in life, will bring about another action/reaction.  In being mindful when doing any activity, from years of following the Precepts and Principles of PL, I see when my “lessons” need to be reflected on, and changes considered.

There is one Principle, PL Principle # 9   I will not have a mind to be dishonest.  I never would have admitted to being dishonest, but I am, to myself, when I try to say or do something, that I know is not really REALLY how I should be doing something, cutting corners when crafting, using a glue that is handy, rather than get up and find the glue that is best for the project I’m working on,  Small things, but small actions add up.

PL Principle 2  I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather.  Rather I will always be creative and will look for shortcomings in MY OWN thinking and actions.
