but eclectic . . . .
eclectic sounds . . . . . . . .
. . . . . exotic.
I like exotic!
But one thing I realized is I am a basic, no frills kinda girl. In my personal life, I can dress it up when I need to, but for the most part, I am no frills – jeans and t-shirt kinda girl, and so are many of my cards.
In life, I wear a couple of special rings from my wonderful boys, a #1 Mom necklace from my boys, basic diamond earrings from a love from long ago and a cheap watch from who knows where. . . same stuff virtually every day.
I can dress it up wonderfully when the need arises, and I can mingle with anyone from the country bumpkin to the congressman . .. I’m eclectic. My cards are pretty much the same – but I like a variety of techniques and mediums. ….So, here’s my basic card – a simply scene, inspired by Michelle Zindorf’s sandcastle card here.
I love her work. When I grow up. . . . . ok. . . . . IF I grow up, I want to create like she does. She makes it all look so easy! She really is an inspiration and so very talented. I would love to attend one of her workshops, but I am brayer impaired. What she does with a brayer, I try, with minimal success, to recreate with sponges.
I like scenes and things that make sense. I like order. I like bold and bright sometimes. I like soft and muted. I like fun and whimsical sometimes. I like cutesy sometimes. I like simple. I like sparkly, I like elegant. I like such a variety. I like masculine lots of the time (maybe it’s because I am surrounded by BOYS in my life!) I like a little of all of it. How ‘bout you? What’s your style?
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!
