here are the requirements taken from the blog
"New Beginnings DC0014
Our challenge is to create a card or layout using the following recipe: gold or silver/gray or black and something glittery, ribbon, and incorporate some kind of distressing. Also we would love to read some of your New Year’s resolutions."
This was kind of a tough one for me. I had this image from Reece's Designs and wanted to use it. Colored with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS I started out with black CS for the base....light gray CS embossed with CB Textile Embossing Folder inked with black ink....black & light gray CS cut out with oval nesties and edged with silver leafing pen...sentiment cut out with deckle edge nestie....black organza ribbon..tag with 2010 written with silver leafing pen....I used silver stickles on the ribbon and card and glass effects on the truck windows. I inked all the edges for distressing. The sentiment says "Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow" and is computer generated.
I don't normally make New Year's resolutions but I do have some things that I want to work on:
1. Get my digital images and files organized
2. Learn to take better pictures of my cards
3. Do better with my swaps
4. Keep on top of family birthdays (they have a way of sneaking up on me) and get cards mailed on time
5. Learn how to say No...I sew for a living full time and end up with tons of side jobs that I don't want to do because I can't say no and it takes away my time for crafting. My craft time is important to me and I need to take it back.
I think that's it.......and if anyone has any tips they would like to share for the first two I would love to hear them.
