aimlessness is good for ya!

not to mention weirdness. see, sometimes i just realllllllllllly need to work freeform. case in point:

(patterned paper: basic grey, dcwv + butterfly cut from giftwrap; vintage: sheet music, tarot card; florals: prima, petaloo; gem swirls: prima; bird charm: blue moon; felt ribbon: k&co; grungeboard keyhole: ranger; brads: making memories; epoxy sticker: michaels; other: colorbox inks, foam tape)

i got these FABULOUS vintage tarot cards at a rummage sale in december...the little bird charm was a 2-fer-1 at michael's right before xmas...the black gem swirls are the bits cut off of bigger ones to make them fit on various cards...the sheet-music flower was made for something else but never used...the butterfly was leftover from vc's card in november...and the rest are just bits & bobs from here & there. i had no idea WHAT i was making until i was finished, at which point it was absolutely clear i'd made a birthday card for my friend cheryl. woohoo--another one crossed off the january list!


  1. I love these cards that originate from bits and pieces and no plan. They often become my faves over the planned meticulously cards :)

    Thank you for all your lovely comments yesterday!

  2. Ooooh.....Lauren......this is really magnificent! I gotta try this freeform type of I usually have card designs stored in my lil head...what a fabulous tarot card...Happy Monday!!

  3. Oh, my, but this is FABOO! I have yet to be able to pull off this aimless art, though I am often aimless in other ways. ;-)

  4. hmmm hmmm come when i put bits and bobs together, it really does look aimless and you are able to create yet another Lauren masterpiece? no fair!!!

  5. I think your blurry portrait is making me car sick ... however, clicking through to see this aimless beauty is worth a little motion sickness nausea :^)
