Busy week … playing with oddments

This last week has been busy and what’s more even when I had some time I could have crafted in, the hubby was using the chair in the craft room so it was too much effort to move things around to be able to craft. So today has been my first time of getting to the desk and getting crafty.

Now I am sure this isn’t just me, but when I’ve had a break it’s almost like I don’t know what to do so I always find it sit and stare at stuff a while and the first card I make is a bit of an oddity! And this is one of those cards.

It started by me grabbing the piece of Art by Marlene collage paper and sticking it to white cardstock, then a piece of the leftover sprayed paper from last weekends photography session (see last weekends blogs for explanation). I then created a sentiment and found an embossed sprig from the Natures Prints set already made and then some gold sequins!

As I say oddments … but I actually think it looks ok overall and I like the zingy colours.

And now I’ve got through the initial block on creativity I’m off and ready to create in a more thought through way … so I already know because it’s happened by the time I’m writing this post that two more projects have come together quite easily – one of which in particular I am super super happy with … but you will get to see those as an when I get round to writing them up.

So this next week … and probably the one after that … are likely to be just as busy but at least my hubby won’t need to borrow my chair anymore so if I do get some time I might get some more crafting done for you to see… but be warned there may be a few gaps as life gets in the way!

Happy crafting!

Catherine
