Sometimes, I don’t even tell myself that I am not satisfied with how a card turned out. What happens is that I just start making another one, without even being conscious of the decision to do so. That is what happened today.
As a result, I have a second card to post that I am much happier with. This time the elements flowed together well and it was much quicker to make.
Today was one of those days where the idea of what to do came quickly but the said execution of the idea was rather difficult. The video today was presented by Jennifer Mcguire and a second set of cards was showcased by Andy Granick . I decided to make a card that incorporated the design ideas of both Jennifer and Andy. This is where the trouble started. I like to be able to “eyeball” things rather than do the meticulous measuring, but like it or not, this card required measuring. It took a while to do, but the real problem was that I got some graphite marks from the pencil I used on my card front, that left some dirty looking smudges. This took some work to erase. I even had to do stamp surgery on the sentiment I used, to make it fit the way I wanted. Finally, the card came together, however. and the end result is nice.
