It’s not easy being green
Hello! I must say that I am really enjoying this crafting challenge I have set myself. Last night I worked on not one, but TWO pieces. Of course, I left the thumb drive holding the file of the second project at homesitting on the counter along with my lunch. Fear not my lovely readers, I do have one of the images all ready to show you.
Last night I started with going through my scrap bins looking for something that would jump out at me and say “Me Me ME!” What caught my eye last night was a couple pieces of green paper. With that I decided that I would do an all green piece.
Once the papers are picked out I move the papers around trying to figure out how each piece will be used. I do a rough layout, look at it for a minute and then mix it all up. Yesterday’s tree project actually started out as flowers. I didn’t like the look so I decided to turn one flower into a sun.
I broke up the other “flowers” and turned the petals in to trees. I was much happier with the the tree project than I would have been if I went ahead with the flowers. When I first finished the “green” piece I wasn’t thrilled with it. I walked away to let it dry before I scanned the photo so I could post it. When I returned to my craft room I decided that it had grown on me. I think that making myself finish a project I don’t think is going well will probably be the hardest part of this challenge.
Here is the end result for “Green”
Not sure what tonight’s theme will be. Any suggestions?
