Let's talk about creativity

You never know when it will strike. The past few days I have felt so inspired to be creative. However, I had no idea where my projects would go. It turns out, they didn't really go anywhere. I have been wanting to try my hand at watercoloring for quite sometime. I have a few mediums that allow water, but this time I wanted to try distress inks. My first project was "ruined" when the makeshift cardstock mask I made allowed the watercolor to bleed. I made it work, but I won't be making it into a card. My second project is still in progress. I shared a picture on Instagram yesterday of "layer one". I feel like distress inks need to be built up for a more opaque look. However, if you're looking for a more muted look, one layer is all you need. I have absolutely no idea what will come of my watercolor wonder. I will be sure to post if anything comes of it!
Thanks for reading,

I'm back!

After what seems like an eternity, I am back! While having a baby is a perfectly justifiable reason for my long absence, I was away a lot longer than I expected to be. I have quite a few exciting things on the horizon. We have recently planted the seeds for our garden this year. I have several card design ideas that I cannot wait to share. And there are lots of exciting life happenings coming up that I can't wait to share. I hope to have two blog posts per week from now on. Thanks for reading!
