My 2005 Holiday Design

Xmas2005

These will not go out on time this year, due to my schedule being too crazy. I had to really restrain myself to not add any embellishments to this design and keep it simple so I could get them done. I was able to crank out 40 of them in an hour. I still haven’t generated the annual news update I send out with my cards . . . but, I may still send them out anyway. After all, people don’t care if they hear from you late, as long as they hear from you, right?

It's a funny thing, but

Wishyouwerehere_by_juliehrr_172717 the designs I’m most proud of, always seem to be the ones that took no more than 10 minutes and have more of a “miminalist” feel to them . . . Here’s one that I especially loved developing . . .

My Resolution for the New Year . . .

is to streamline and simplify my art style with regards to my stamping and card making . . . altho I have to admit, in comparison to my peers, my style is relatively simplistic already. Still, I want to create simple designs that have a “big” impact–that make ya’ say “WOW!”. I think the key to that may lie in being more selective about mixing patterns, colors, and avoiding complex techniques. And, taking care not to overkill on the embellishments . . .

I happened upon another stamper whose artwork I greatly admire–she has such panaché, and I find her designs so inspiring because of her simple, yet classy style.

So, that is my mission this year and pretty much for the future: Simplify, yet still maintain a sense of delight and magic.
