I am not dead. Nope. My mojo may be dead, or at least on a loooong vacation, because it sure isn't here. I played every night last week and mostly made pretty trash. I would play, get disgusted, throw up my hands and just walk out. It's been a rough week.
This morning I went back in, locked the door, and swore I wouldn't come out again until I made something blog-worthy. As I dug through the discarded projects on my desk I found some that I no longer detest, even though there is no love.
It all started last week when Lisa Carroll posted this card on her blog. I have both of the Simon Says Stamp Dahlia dies, and they needed to be used so I could put them away. I have had this idea to do white-on-white, and I tried to make it. I really did try. Here's that card:
It started out as a full card front. Over time it got adjusted and trimmed to a panel. All the flowers were die-cut from SU Shimmery White card stock. I used Matte Multi Medium as the glue. I think it could use a silver layer, but then it wouldn't be white-on-white. There's probably a reason I don't make white-on-white, and you're looking at it right here.
Moving on. I thought I'd cut some more of the detail flowers from Shimmery White and put them over a shimmery solid. I have a small collection of shimmer Bazzill. This is what happened:
I thought maybe ... sigh, not feeling the love.
I think this is my favorite of the three. I like that I almost matched the Bazzill paper with some washi tape, and I kinda like the pop of the red-orange enamel dots.
Maybe it's all that white space. Yeah, I'll bet that's it.
Thus ends this portion of my whine-fest. I'm sure there will be more to come.
Thanks for stopping by. :)
