I suck at card making. I know, we've discussed my aversion to card making in the past or maybe its all been a conversation in my head but I hate making cards. Okay, I like making cards when I go to a class and the pretty card is all planned out for you. But this coming up with something original nonsense is killing me! I thought, 'I'll work fast, not over think and just slap them together. Like I did the recent ATCs I made.'
I like them! They were fast thinkin' art. Nope, can't do it this time. Cards are my nemesis, my Achilles heel...
I can only get so far. I stamped all the backgrounds, glued on pretty stamped images, bits of ribbons and lace. Stamped some more images. Tried coloring with pens and colored pencils. Thinking of adding words maybe... None of them are speaking to me and I don't send out artwork that I don't like. The pieces made are just not meshing with the images I have floating around in my brain. Nope.
Do you find you struggle with a certain type of art? Have any suggestions for my poor cards?
(P.S. This is not a thinly veiled attempt to garner public sympathy and pity thumbs ups on my artwork. It really does suck, in my mind at least! I think I need art therapy or something. :) Maybe I need this book. Or this one. Or maybe this one?! Is shopping considered therapy?!!! Where's my credit card?? )
