I don't know if I'm really ready to play yet but I do believe it's time I get my head back in the game and give it a try. After all, there's only so much pity one can show for oneself before it's starts to become pathetic.
I've slowed way down on the index cards and I haven't changed the one hanging at work for several days. I think it's about time I put up a new one.
I did the background for this one with crayons. I started by using two different colors and I thought after coloring the background I could use my heat tool to sort of blend the two colors together. That didn't work so well BUT while the card was still warm I ran the crayons back over it and it melted them for a deeper shade. Then I ran a comb through the hot wax for a bit of texture. Only problem I found was that it was more difficult to glue on the words and picture. It didn't want to stay stuck down too well.
Monday I spent the majority of the day working on some of my mixed media projects for my March craft. I didn't get a ton done but at least something was accomplished. I tend to over think things too much instead of just going with the flow and letting it happen. That always slows me down.
