Grungy Monday and Simon Says challenges. For Grungy Monday we were challenged to use Ranger Alcohol Inks. Well to be fair that's really not a challenge. I hadn't had mine out for ages and thoroughly enjoyed it. As you can see on yesterdays post I started with my alcohol ink backgrounds and stamped some of my favourite images on them. I kind of got stuck there and left them for a day or so. This seems to be happening a lot lately but I guess I just have to go where the creative flow takes me, or at least that's what I keep telling myself. So when I got back to the card making I wasn't feeling very inspired by what I had so far but I just started pulling scraps of paper and what not out of drawers and put stuff together. I wasn't terribly thrilled with my first attempt which you can see above but I was a little more happy with attempt #2 which is below.
The Simon Says challenge was to use a word which is something that has a lot of appeal to me lately. We can convey so much in just a word. I have some necklaces with just one word on that I love to wear depending on how I'm feeling that day or what direction I need reminding of that I'm trying to go in.
