Remember these from yesterday?
All these bleach samples will sit here for decades, well not really decades, but they will sit for a long time until I forget where they are in my stamping area.
I am not a stamper who pre-stamps images, pre-cuts cardstock to have ready, or one who generally has a plan. I wish I was more like some of my stamping friends who keep an art journal with sketches and ideas in it, but I am not. Not that I haven't tried, I have 2 beautiful black leather covered art journals - small and medium, both to be used to jot down ideas and notes and such - however, their pages are still pristine as the day they left the factory.
When I start to create, I often see in my head where it's going or have somewhat of an idea when I start. Most often the stamps or paper speak silently to me. If I need a little inspiration to kick start the process I will check out out the plethora of sketches that are available web-wide, or page through magazines, or even take a trip down memory lane with my own work, or visit the blogs of a favorite or two. But most often I just follow my creative juices and see where it leads. Sometimes it leads straight to the recycling bin a few times before success happens! :)
So, the languishing images will not do me any good here. So here is what I am offering:
Leave a comment here telling me your crafting process. Are you a planner, a fly-by-nighter, a journal keeper, or what? What is your process?
I'll draw a name on Monday, the 18th and announce the winner of all the bleach stamped samples and the card I made - it's a great way to see and feel (most of) the colors of Gina's cardstock if you haven't tried it before!
The fine print:
- Only 1 entry per person
- Must live in the United States
- The winning name will be posted here on Monday evening.
- The winner has 24 hours to email me with their mailing information or another name will be drawn. My email address is available under View My Complete Profile on the RIGHT sidebar.
Have a great weekend!
