About The Episode
It seems like with this much gray hair I should know just about everything in the world; and after 19 Craft Roulette episodes, I should have at least a working understanding of my process. Nope. Episode 20 brought a dose of humility and teaching.
The lesson was about inertia and warming up my creative muscle before expecting cute to be made.
In other words, I need to stay inky to stay creative. For whatever reason, I had not been at my MESK!* creating much all week, so when I got to the wheel's deals, I was basically cold. Does this ever happen to you?
Do you get to a window of crafty time and go blank? What do you do then? Watch a video? Clean and organize? Feel frustrated? Do you walk away? It isn't FUNN.
Do you ever watch a video or a FUNN U. lesson and get a little intimidated by how quickly a beautiful card is made? Yeah, don't be. I can't speak for others, but I know each Cards+ Lab on FUNN University represents hours and hours of thought, development, and making trash before the projects are seen. Don't let this bum you out, though, because students and viewers get the benefit of someone else's prep work (which I love doing).
Once I got groovin' on the episode 19 parameters, I went overboard (scroll down to "Official Projects"), and had a darn good time fixing up some "problemed" cards and making new ones! As you look at these "Z-fold" cards, look at how the differences are made. You can see variety in the size of the sentiments, placement of the images, choice of color proportions, and more.
Thank you, guest contributors! It is so FUNN to see what your creative muscles come up with. I am looking forward to sharing these on the Craft Roulette's FB group and showing them off on next Friday's show! Let your crafty friends know so they can see how outstanding you are!
