Hey Everyone! Here's a card to give someone who is embarking on a new endeavor, perhaps someone into music too. I really like music backgrounds. There are plenty of patterned papers on the market to choose; however, I realize I am a stamper at heart. I rarely reach for my patterned papers and usually hoard them. I try to use them more often now, but stamping my patterns seems to come easier. I realize that the outcome is the same and I am adding an extra step to my creative process, but it's just the way I create. We all have our own individual ways, which makes it paper "art." That leads me into another topic...The Cookie Cutter Crafter. Now, there is nothing wrong with knowing your style. I admire those who do, but for me I do not know my style. Some people can identify a few styles, but there doesn't seem to be just one. This is the story of my life. I was the type of student who could not decide where to attend college or what to major in because I had interests in a lot of subjects and career fields. I sometimes hate being forced into a box, especially when it comes to the arts. So, here on my blog you see a lot of different styles from clean and graphic to a bit shabby to an elegant style. I create to my heart's content based on what I feel and like at that moment and that's what I call art. The beauty is that art is in the eye of the beholder, so it's up for you to decide that as well for yourself!
Now that is finished, here's more information on the card! Thanks for (listening) reading and have a great day!
