Just messing

Been feeling that it's maybe time to give up on this crafting lark !  Since Christmas I have really had no inspiration whatsoever and other that making cards for the  design teams I'm on I don't seem to be able to rouse any enthusiasm to do anything.  I have a friend who is always saying she has no inspiration either and THEN she goes and posts on facebook a whole raft of super cards ( You know who you are !!! ) Well she had used a sheet of painted paper she had made at a class so I decided maybe I could take some inspiration from her so I made two A4 sheets of card using brusho paints and then cut them up and made a batch of cards with them, nothing wonderful but at least it got me doing something instead of staring vacantly at my stamps and doing ziltch. So here's a couple of pics of them


It's been awhile since I played with the brushos, think I'm a bit heavy handed with them and maybe should leave some white areas but had fun.

  1. They look wonderful. Joan! I love them all! I think I get a bit heavy handed with brushos too, but these look perfect to me. Please don't give up! I too have been feeling my mojo is lacking, but it often goes walk about at this time of year. I blame the weather! Pinterest might help...

  3. These are wonderful Joan. I don't think you're too heavy handed, it's just that the pigments in brushos are so strong. You also just have to hope for the best with them as you never know what they're going to turn out like, it's a leap of faith. I think that each and every one of your cards are beautiful, so please don't give up, I love your artwork. Happy Crafting, Sandra x

  5. Beautiful set of cards Joan, I really don't think you should give up, especially if this is what you make when mojo is missing! When I'm lacking in inspiration I make something from a magazine such as Making Cards and it usually gets me going again.

  9. I don't think there's anything wrong with your creative mojo at all. These cards are all fabulous and I'm pleased you enjoyed making them. The Brusho backgrounds look fabulous and the colours are clear - mine just look like mud!
