Goin' to the chapel.....
I have a song in my head and can't get it out....you know it...."goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get married...." Rene, our November Guest Designer, has created a card and immediately made me think of that song. She used the church image from the set Now & Forever. And she created this amazing background that makes me think about a beautiful summer sunset!
I asked Rene what her favorite type of papercraft project is and why....
Making cards has not lost its magic after all these years, and there is a still that thrill when an idea turns out even better than imagined. And when it doesn’t work, oh well, on to the next. I also enjoy making boxes and trying 3-D items.
My style in cards leans towards Clean and Simple, but I think Eclectic is the best description. I enjoy making tags and ATC’s, especially when I want to play with ideas/colours. If it works, great, if not, it is not a big deal.
All kinds of materials find their way in my craft, especially recycled materials and finds. It’s incredible what one can do if you have to be creative with what you have and/or is working on a tight budget. The secret is to make it look like a million $, and that is what I’m trying to achieve.
I don’t really have a favourite theme as such, but making a special birthday card is both inspiring and exciting. Finding the right image(s), sentiment and paper(s) and putting it all together can be very satisfying and/or nerve wracking. Seeing a smile on the receiver’s face, is the best payment ever. That alone will inspire me to continue making cards.
Why not stop by Rene's blog - Life in the Craft Lane - and leave her some love. You can find out more about her card and see Rene's other amazing projects.
