Thanks ...

This post is to say thank you to all my followers and blog visitors.  I've been missing in action for ages ... family demands alongside missing ideas mean that I haven't been able to create any cards or post anything!  I've also been distracted by my sewing machine!  Alongside paper crafting I also love textiles and each year in the Autumn I attend a number of craft fairs and sell gifts for Christmas - most of which are fabric based ... so I need to get creating stock!

I decided I would attempt to create a card this evening for a couple of challenges.  This is it:

I began by creating a gelli print using yellows, orange, red and bronze acrylic paint along with a number of different stencils.  I was really pleased with the print and disappointed with the card - it does look better in real life than it appears in the photograph.  I still think it lacks something so I may be back later with a revised version.  I'm confident that the idea is sound but this card just has too much white space and lacks something ... not sure what ...

I'm going to enter the following challenges:

"Less is More" # 249 Colour Challenge - FIRE
AAA Cards # 52  Thanks/Thanksgiving

I'm going off to see if I can find that "something missing"!

  8. I personally love all that white space, there is enough detail in the fabulous background to take centre stage.
