I must admit that if I were you Peeps, I'd be a TAD BIT AFRAID as to what the world is coming to, as it seems I am posting a mere week later than my last post.
Be Afraid. Be Very Afraid!! hehe
Well, in actuality, the world is continuing to spin on it's normal rotational axis. I just needed to make a card for my FIL's birthday today!
Of course, my creative MoJo started in one direction and ended up completely turned around going in the opposite direction.
I had this wonderful idea for another Gelli Print. After 3-4 attempts I got the look I was trying to achieve.
Then, I was totally stumped. LOVE the background. I just can't figure out how to add any elements to it. So, I walked away from that gorgeous background and took the next exit on the creative road.
It dawned on me last night that my FIL is 66. And the light bulb went off in another creative room.
The card is 5.5" square on a Chocolate Chip base. The hardest part of this whole "creative trip" was finding a map that didn't have a million advertisements on it, since The Toad refused to let me cut up one of his treasured maps. I finally found a large enough section of an ad free portion of California and printed it off the computer. I added Distress Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain ink to give it a more vintage look. The stamp set used is from Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz's Travel Ways. I stamped the car with VersaMark ink and embossed with fine black embossing powder. The Route 66 sign was stamped with Distress Fired Brick. The Road Trip was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and sponged with a combination of Vintage Photo and Fired Brick. Both the car and sign are adhered with dimensionals.
Now to figure out what to do with my Gelli Print. I'm thinking it just might become a page in my "journey" creative journal!! Stay Tuned!!
'Till next time................enjoy where the journey takes you!
