I wanted the card to have a connection to the wedding ….and as you may have seen on the last two posts …although there were some traditional elements …it was not conventional .
The bride was not in a white long dress ….the groom was minus a jacket … the cake was ‘Dr Who’ themed and blue …. and there were Japanese origami cranes every where …which they had been folding for months….not forgetting little Lego touches
I hunted through reams of paper....stamped and embossed ….and then cut out the elements …and finally coloured the fan with Pro Markers.
Emma insisted there was no colour scheme to the wedding but I picked up that yellow and blue was to feature quite a bit. …she is not a flowery fussy person …and loves things Japanese …. so this was the end result......
...and this is a better shot of the necklace I made ... to go with the jacket I wore.
Sorry I still have no desk over flowing with creativity... but I do feel strong stirrings within ….I want to make more jewellery ….obviously scrap the wedding . I have an urge to try tapestry again …and I found some Ikea mirrors that need playing with but first I have to gird up my loins and gut my space. My biggest problem is getting rid of the things I don’t use …in case I need them …one day …but I am discovering that certain things do not stand the test of time and may have to be binned before they were ever or barely used and I know I still have a ton of paper boxed up in the loft ….not sure why I ever bought most of it ….its going to the craft department of a local hospital…..must have been suffering from a very bad Stash Addiction.
The stuff I love, I will keep and it will last for years ... with little top ups of course.
Wish me luck in my quest for tidiness and organisation.
Take Care xx
