Three Moo

Wednesday Stampers are great! I have seriously never heard of moo cards before, but these girls made me try the format. I've probably said it often, but I'll say it again: I love challenges! Especially if I manage to do something with them, of course.

This is what I did - three moo cards, in a relatively cheerful orange.


tech stuff: crumbled up the paper, stamped with a nameless cherry blossom stamp, colored in with watercolor, arranged some (watercolor dyed) text on top, added images and flowers and some random word clippings.

I decided I like the format. I could imagine dividing an atc into a similar triptych and doing it quasi in three parts.

Thanks for the well-wishes! I am feeling better than in the morning, now that I've not only had time to make some art, but that I have managed to finish a challenge right away, in one sitting, and actually even like the result. Makes me feel better about myself.

There are days when I sit at my desk all night after work and not complete a thing.
I was really glad to read Paula's words this morning: you've got to try to work with your art every day. I do try to. I would love to finish every challenge every time.
Lately I have not been happy with what I make. I have kept trying, but I grow more and more frustrated.
And when I'm frustrated I tend not to like myself too well - and then, for sure, I'm not able to do any art all.
Not sure how to get out of this pickle...

Oh, and please, if you'd like to be linked with me, would you kindly drop a note! I'd love to be starting to work on my links next. Thanks!

  9. These are really stunning. Such gorgeous backgrounds.
    You really should be proud of these.
    Even if you don't complete a project a day, I find that I might get out my alcohol inks & make up some acetate backgrounds. Then I get old pages from books & paint them with acrylic washes. This way I am being creative & have something to hand for the challenges as they come round.
    Even get a notebook & jot ideas down, helps, it is still being creative sketching ideas.You are probably doing it witout realising.xx
