i know what you're thinking. you're thinking, "the mad old bat has finally gone completely mental AND lost the ability to count, to boot!" which is understandable, seeing as how i posted paper adventure operation 12 (LUCK) saturday and operation 11 (HABIT) last week. but you may recall that i skipped the talent one... (due mostly to a lack of time just then) ...so here it is now:
and the inside:
(patterned paper: basic grey, k&co, bengali newspaper; gold-embossed lakshmi: hindi greeting card; clipart: anahata katkin; ghost butterfly& pink gems: heidi swapp; chipboard swirls: fancy pants; flowers: prima; flower sequins: queen&co; rub-ons: basic grey, doodlebug, american crafts; photo corners: ki; fancy paper clip: nunn design; pens: american crafts, signo, zig; alphabet stamps: k&co; inks: colorbox; other: foam tape, jewelcraft gems, brass paper fasteners, acryllic paint, seed beads, ribbon scrap, tiny heart stickers)
the text reads: "MY TALENT: making simple things complicated...but in a *good* way!"
because as you know, i enjoy embellishing. yes, i know that sometimes less is more. and yes, i am even capable of loving clean lines, minimalism, and the perfection of simplicity. but if you give me a bunch of plain assorted craft items... (perhaps you'd feel they consitituted enough supplies for several projects) ...the chances are quite good that i would use half of said products to adorn the other half...and then combine them ALL into one big giant greeting card! but i guarantee i'll have had enough FUN for several projects...which is kind of the point, right? :)
