Tonight I sat down to start work on the thank you cards I need to make. I picked out a very cute image from Penny Black, grabbed some distress markers and set to painting the image. I was really happy with how the image look but do you think I could work out how to finish the card? Sometimes all I can see is the colouring – I forget to look at the big picture. I tried numerous ideas and photographed each of them so that I could remember what I liked or didn’t like. I really should share this process. It is such a great idea. The other benefit of doing this is that even if you decide to go in one direction for this card, you might save the idea to use for the next project. So after playing around for what seemed like hours I eventually settled on this design. I know it is missing something…I just cannot work out what it is….yet!
