Yesterday's workshops were fun..and I told Angie I'd post the cards when we'd done the workshops..so here they are. Shopkeeper Gal and I listed the workshop as 'Almost Cute' on the schedule. Because there are a bunch of cute stamps around that I'm really attracted to, but I don't really do cute very well; believe it or not, it causes me stress. And that's not a word that crops up in my life very often; after all, I'm married to a man who totally understands that his life and mine are all about me!
I expect it's a personality trait really - I don't expect many of the people who've met me would attribute 'cute' as a genre to me or my life...but I have friends (I do too) who can produce lovely cards that make me coo with delight at their cuteness. Strange that I can't copy that. Equally, I can't do the Shabby chic look so mastered by Tim Holtz and Ranger addicts. I've said before that one of the reasons is that it's like asking me to work in seven shades of wee wee, and I think it really is a colour thing in the final analysis.
I can't do pastel-y stuff too well in terms of colouring either, and I'm attracted by big bright colours like a moth to the light. Still, I manage to force myself into trying, and yesterday no-one asked for their money back or moaned at my inability, so I guess I'm fooling some of the people some of the time!
