The more relaxed you are, the better you are at everything: the better you are with your loved ones, the better you are with your enemies, the better you are at your job, the better you are with yourself. ~ Bill Murray
I die cut the Cover-Up in the four colors of the current MFT Color Challenge, as well as Black for my frame. After attaching my frame to a white cardstock base, I began putting the puzzle together (for me, sort of a zen-like experience).
Next, I cut a circular frame from black cardstock positioning it over my stained-glass like pattern and attaching it with form tape for dimension.
I started with a piece of White Cardstock with Color Burst using a wonky circle stencil.
I pulled out my Trendy Triangle Stamp set from My Favorite Things and started stamping. I probably should have had a plan and used a ruler, but since my circles were wonky, I decided to stick with wonky triangles too.
I started with the large green triangles and then added three different smaller triangles in blue. I finished with a MFT Many Thanks Die Cut.
I had my annual eye exam this afternoon ... which included having my eyes dilated. Unfortunately, it takes hours for my pupils to return to normal, so since I am creating cards while I am visually impaired and wearing sunglasses (nothing keeps a determined crafter down) ... I decided to keep it simple tonight.
I thought about searching for my wood grain papers, but instead decided to try a little abstract water-coloring. I used three different paint colors on Kraft cardstock (something I'll have to do more often ... love the effect, especially with the autumn hues).
