Stuck in a rut? Feeling uninspired? Just can't find your mojo? Someone commented yesterday that they used to try to create the perfect card, but realized that there is no perfect card. Trying to create something perfect is paralyzing. I know. It used to stop me from being the best me. I have learned that jumping in with two feet and not worrying about making a mistake is liberating. You learn a lot from making a mistake! Sooooo..... I challenge you to play along with me! Step one - pick a DSP - Designer's Series Paper you like and pull the coordinating cardstock. Here is my selection.
Pick something that floats your boat. You do not have to copy mine! Now leave it on the table overnight and let your mind work on the possibilities! What does it coordinate with? You could use a suite from the catalog that SU has put together for you or think outside the box and stretch your possibilities!
Homework for tonight....look on Pinterest, Facebook, or blogs and find a card using your color and DSP combination and/or the stamp set you think you might use and copy them so you can use them later.
Normally I do all of my designing in one sitting, but for this design exercise, I will be giving one tip a day to let you absorb the concept. Hopefully you will decide to join along and will take the time to pull DSP, papers and a coordinating stamp set.
I will reward anyone who plays along with me! I already have a Twisted Gate Fold Card in my head that I am going to create as an incentive. (See my Tuesday Valentine post). I will send you a copy of the card as well as the directions if you come out and play. You can comment as we go along, or just play along in private, but to get the incentive, you will need to either post the card you have created in the comment section or send a copy to me so I can post it at the end of this design series.
Did you pick a DSP combination? Post your choice below!
