We Click

Happy Friday! Well, my daughter's back in school, my big work projects are done, and things are finally returning to normal. I figured I would be crafting up a storm, but instead I've been feeling pretty non-crafty the past couple of weeks. *sigh* The other day, I even chose cleaning over crafting. Yep, it's clinical.

So today, I'm sharing one of my cards over at Two Peas:


This card was technically one of the more difficult cards I've made--lots of trial and error. The "click" with the graph paper is an enlarged Captured digital journaling card from Hello Forever. The journaling card was in grey, and after playing around, I changed the card into an overlay with "Hard Light" function and adjusted the hue and saturation.

The cute cameras are from Adrienne Looman's Retro Camera set. For the hearts, I inked some Studio Calico wood veneers with a Distress Ink. Here's a close-up:


I'm entering this card into the Moxie Fab World Movement challenge. I usually think of movement literally, but with the Paper Crafts' Card Design Handbook, I saw fab examples of movement by drawing the eye from one element to the next. In this card, it would be the hearts, camera, "we," and "click."

Thanks for looking. Have a great weekend!

  11. This is so adorable, Jocelyn! those little wooden hearts are just perfect here. I can relate to non-crafty feelings of late. Me, too. We had such an awesome and busy summer (we had a 7800-mile roadtrip to thank for that), and now it's back to school and I'm just not feeling it. Picking up paper or inking a stamp? Just can't be bothered. I hope that changes soon--I have too much invested in crafty supplies!!

    I hope that all is well with you (other than not feeling crafty). Hoping you find some mojo soon!!

    Take care, my friend!

  13. I totally understand the lack of crafting....I thought I would be in the studio like I used to be (up to 10 hours a day)....I'm in there maybe an hour and sometimes I don't enter for days!

    Either way--I LOVE this card! LOVE those cameras!! FUN colors! Fab x10:)
