It's that time already..
Here's a card that's been caught in a photo of my desk earlier this month. That was when I was working ahead and thinking how great I was. Pride comes before the fall, and of course, I'm not great and indeed, I'm a little behind. Christmas Cards. Do 'em for private use, or don't do 'em. Whichever way I go, the decision has to be made this week. After all, they need posting or delivering in about 4 weeks, otherwise it's not worth the effort. Is it? This Thursday I conduct the first of quite a few Christmas card workshops - which is why this card is already made. And I'm showing you because it ain't exactly a lesson in technique so I figure no-one will be cheated by seeing it earlier! It's the Tim Holtz Christmas foliage die and a Tim Holtz Heart die too....cut from grunge paper and inked and sprayed with glittery shiny stuff. See, I can use the TH stuff, it just doesn't involve much grungy art in my hands. I used iddy bits of ribbon for holly berries just to keep on with the dimension thing. That's the thing about my workshops see. I don't really bother about your difficulty or cost in posting them..that's kinda not my problem. Obviously, if you don't want dimension, you will choose a one layer card workshop, or stick everything flat and that will be the gorgeous free will in action. Meantime, silicone glue and foam pads are my glues of choice. You may want to track the number of sprayed sparkly and shiny elements I use this month....the spray smells wonderful!
