My first time to post with this group "What's On Your Worktop Wednesday" (WOYWW). The answer___ a mess. http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com i have spent the last few days trying to create backgrounds etc for cards using my new collection of Distress Inks. Unfortunately it is I who am Distressed. Like all Ranger inspired projects using their products I never seem to have the right one. To have the one someone is demonstrating requires a lottery win. They have not just pigment & dye but alcohol dyes, pigment this, that and the other, but variations of these that come in pads, reinkers sprays, washes and who knows what else.
After this week of fruitless activity it occurs to me that I cannot nor ever will get the hang of traditional card-making as I lack the "neat" gene. Then today low and behold Anne Gaal, a real card maker, comes up with a post that for me is inspirational; http://www.gaalcreative.com "Organizing Hidden Potential". In my case the key word is hidden as in buried. So I will read her blog much more carefully and aim for a less Ranger incited day of frustration. Oh and in a moment of absolute brain fog i signed up for King Tim's class starting later this week where the class supply list has several more bank busting supplies i do not have.
A note on WOYWW. i HAVE FOLLOWED SEVERAL BLOGGERS IN THIS GROUP AND EVERY WEDNESDAY SAY TO MYSELF NOW WHAT IS THIS, oh CRAP I forgot to turn off the cap key.
For those not indulging in paint and messing, King Tim is, Tim Holtz, the reigning guru of the pad and stamp world and who along with Ranger Products will set any and all economies back on their feet.
