At the moment all other projects are on hold because I am working on ideas for the 4th Artist's Trading Card Swap organised by Ali of Very Berry Handmade.
This is my first card for this swap - I have a few ideas and have volunteered to be a swap angel, so I will have to make at least two. The theme is "Getting Away from it All" and this scene, which I also photographed for my blog header, is one of my favourite places to do that. It shows the Bass Rock from the coast.
This is where I have got with it - I'm not sure whether to call it finished.
It is not quite as wonky as it looks from the photos but I had difficulty turning it and I think I may have to unpick it and go back to the drawing board. Or maybe I have to learn not to be too much of a perfectionist!
Thought it might make you laugh you to see how shamefully messy I am. The card is only 2.5 x 3.5 inches, but it took this to create it.
I am very happy to have been invited by Nesta of the lovely blog Ella and Nesta's Little Room to take part in a Round the World Blog Hop. Each blogger on the hop writes a post answering some questions about their creative process and gives a mention to a handful of other blogs. Nesta has her own Blog Hop post today - please check it out, and if you are visiting from there hello:-) I'll be doing my own Hop post next Monday, so I hope you might come back and see what's going on here.
