dream a little dream...

Happy World Card Making day from a grey, drizzly day here in BC...Fall is upon us, and so is the rainy season. I'm sure the pumpkins in the fields are drinking in the rain, but I'd rather see Mr. Sunshine! Since it's such a grey day, I thought I'd share something that makes me cheery. It's one of my latest creative 'experiments'. I've been playing around with some new techniques (and getting acquainted with the old Singer sewing machine) to add dimension to my projects. I'm quite happy with the way this one turned out, but I think there's still room for improvement...as always. Creating is a process for me. I learn what does and doesn't work..its all about the journey.

I mixed up some patterned paper with some tea-stained sheet music. I used some Prima papers(how I love those) from the Nursery Tales line, fought with the sewing machine and stitched them all together before adding them to the cream cardstock. That lovely blue, distressed embellishment and key are grungeboard...they are virtually indistructable and oh, how I adore them. I decided that the key looked pretty lonely by itself so I added it to a soft cream felt background and use the old pinking shears for some pizzaz.

I hope where ever you are the sun is shining. I'm off to enjoy what I can out of this grey day. Maybe pick up a good book and get cozy. We'll see..
Have a great day! Create a card for WCMD!! Create..dream..explore!
