Before I started the 30-day colouring challenge, I was >this< close to having got completely caught up with blogging my card backlog. I very deliberately stuck to colouring during the challenge so that I wouldn’t end it with a stack of thirty cards that needed to be photographed and written up. I even blogged a couple of the cards I made for other challenges.
And yet, somehow I ended up feeling like it was getting out of control again and I’d lost track of what needed doing — some things have been photographed, some of the photos have been processed, most of the supplies lists have been copied out of my notepad — so I made a spreadsheet.
And, I thought, I might as well add in the things that aren’t cards that I want to blog too.
So now I have a scary list of stuff to do and my brain has gone on strike.
Luckily this is a simple card that doesn’t need much explanation:
- Apply gilding polish through a stencil.
- Stare at the pretty triangles while failing to come up with a card design.
- Decide to fussy cut it out.
- Stare at it a bit longer.
- Find some dark bold patterned paper to put behind it.
- Wrap a coloured vellum band around the middle.
- Stamp and die cut a sentiment and stick it on the vellum band.
Looking at this again, I’m thinking I need to get some more colours of the gilding polish…
And now I’ve just noticed a ton of Instagram alerts on my phone and I’m reminded that I haven’t checked that out since posting my pumpkin card (which also needs writing up) yesterday… I seriously do not know how people do all this social media stuff and still find time to create.
