Caught up now so I'm chuffed. For this card I decided to use pretty much just paint, I haven't done much painting for a few years now and since I've started crafting my passion for painting is returning.
It's weird though because I feel out of practise if you see what I mean, so I guess I should do more LOL! Tony bought me a couple of fabby dinky deep canvases for Christmas (I think they are only about 6" square) and I really fancy having a go at those soon, I wish I had more hours in a day LOL!
The theme in week 3 is "I am" so I have decided on "I am learning to Relax". I've always been a worrier but as time goes by things become easier in life, the reverse reads "As time passes I am worrying less and starting to enjoy my life" and I have to admit that the old saying "life begins at 40" is pretty much true in my case. I have much less to worry about now and life is grand.....it just goes too damn quick!
The card has been painted in a mixture of normal and metallic acrylics and, Nat, I have used Safmat for the lettering, bearing in mind it has been burnished onto a roughly painted surface, it looks pretty good I think.
Anyway, moving on a little. I was having a scout round the internet the other day and came across this link at Creating Keepsakes about Digital Circle Journals. Now I really fancy having a go at this, I have only ever done one digi page and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I don't think digi's can ever replace the stroke factor of paper journals but it just sounds like quite a fun thing to do.
If any of you have done one of these or fancy having a go please leave a comment or let me know. I'd love to have a bit of feedback on them :-)
