Hello again! Whew, it's been a couple of big creative days for me: You know how it is, some weekends you've got it and some you're too drunk. Ho ho.
StudioL3 Compendium of Curiosities Challenge, Week 8.
That's right folks! An entirely new week! Woohoo! This week we're Inking grunge!
My piece features a bunch of little grunge, ahm, ettes. OK, a look at the original packaging tells me this stuff is "Grunge" "Shapes" "Plain."
I assume these little shapes, squares and circles and such, are designed to be used individually like the Holtz fragments.
But where's the fun in that?
... you know I just realized that I can't really tell you much more about my project for this week because one of the cardinal rules of the Compendium Challenge is that we don't give away any secrets from Mr. Holtz's book.
Hmm. What can I tell you, then? My piece features 10 grunge board rectangles, three different stamps and distress inks and a Die Cuts With a View base piece.
What's the matter? Expecting more? OK, let's see ... how about this:
Do you ever forget you own something? Or at least completely forget the whole POINT of some things you own?
Yeah, well, I'm sure you've seen my previous posts lamenting my crappy ass project photos. Too dark. Too bright. Too. Much.
Turns out, I own a damn scanner. A really, very nice HP flatbed scanner. And it's two years old. And it's been in the same spot that entire time. And I use it frequently for work.
And the thought has never, not once until today when I needed to scan and e-mail a document, crossed my mind to use it for scanning projects.
Mhm. In the future my images will be a lot more clear ... unless I don't like what I've created ... then I'll just "forget" about the scanner again.
