This month was a bit busy for me and I’ve had a hard time keeping up with my schedule. Some of the things on my to do list had to be put off. I haven’t had the time to do as much posting here as I had originally thought. It’s been a little frustrating at times but I have to remind myself that my creative time is important to me.
So I had to re-evaluate my list and decide what can I get done with the time that I had. Coloring my DSP had been on my list of ‘things I want to do’ for some time and it is something that will be fairly easy to start and stop. It was the perfect thing to fit in here and there while doing something else. Coloring was some thing I thought I could do on the go as well.
The Stampin’ Blends and DSP traveled well with me during August. I would cut a few pieces of DSP and tuck them into a container with my Blends and take them with me when I knew I was going to have to sit for a bit waiting for something or someone. It was very relaxing and made the time I had to spend waiting fly by. I did get a lot of people asking me what I was doing. It was fun sharing my love of crafting with them.
My Problem is I could not read the colors on my Stampin’ Blends.
That white print on the black marker was so tiny even with my readers I could not see it!!
Am I the only one that has this problem?
I can not read the colors on my Stampin’ Blends. Yes, the caps are colored so I know what color family it is but I couldn’t read the actual shade of green, red, yellow, etc it was. I was getting so frustrated. Certainly not the feeling I want when I have some quiet time to create. As a result, I had to do something.
The solution was to label each Blend. It was a little time consuming but I have to say it was well worth the time.
Labeling each Stampin’ Blend took a little time but so so worth it. I can easily pick out the color I want. No more wasting time trying to read that tiny print on the Blends.
Check out some of the Magnolia Lane DSP I colored.
Some I colored the background of the Magnolia Lane DSP and others I colored the flowers.
Look at how different the colored piece is from the original piece. I love how coloring the DSP gives me so many more options to use the paper for. Take a look at a couple of cards I created using my Magnolia Lane DSP.
Take a look at a card created without coloring the DSP next to the card I created with the DSP I colored. Quite different, don’t you think?
Which one do you like better?
As different as they are I love them both. Sometimes I want a sweet soft card and other times I don’t. It all depends on who I am sending it to.
