card #3: yellow
ok, so apparently a lot of these are going to be collages! :)
which is both good and bad; good because it's my favorite medium and it's totally FUN to be able to get as free-style and weird as i want*; bad because ideally i'd like this project to also have a "try new things" factor in which i push myself to work in media where i'm less comfortable. i'm hoping that part of it will develop more as i go along.
apart from the fact that this is unintentionally** a complete homage to my art journaling idol dina wakley, i really like this; i love silhouette images cut from vintage paper, i love sewn outlines, and that stamp just HAPPENED to fit perfectly. yay!
by the way, if you're tempted to join in on this, i highly recommend it both in terms of creative inspiration AND just plain joy! and no, it's not too late! in one of my favorite posts at the daisy yellow blog, (which of course i cannot find now, sorry!!!) our hostess tammy makes a brilliant point, and i quote:
"you don't have to catch up,
you just have to START"!
(she's right you know!!!)
*if you were ever to transport yourself to the inside of my brain... (which, trust me, i DO NOT recommend, for sooooooooooooo many reasons!!!) ...but if you did, i think you'd find the decor is a lot like this card, except it's in shades pink rather than yellow. just so you know. :) :) :)
**no really, i swear! though admittedly when i did realize it, i went ahead and enhanced the feeling by adding the heart!
