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?
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.
