Hello and Welcome!

It’s been so long I don’t even know what to say!  Time is so fluid and passes by so quickly.  Many things have been happening lately some sad others good that I haven’t been creating much and honestly my energy level has been put to the test.  Never mind my creative “mojo” has been in a block for quite a while.

The good news is that I think is coming back slowly but surely!  I just need to make time and let the stress and sadness be washed away!  So we can start by showing some pictures of cards a made a couple of months ago and did not get a chance to post.

These cards were all created using a paper pack that came as a freebie on one of those great UK magazines you see at Joann’s or Barnes and Nobles.  Honestly I bought this quite a few months ago and just got around to using it recently.

I find they are great for beginners and when you are having a hard time coming up with creative ideas.  All the paper and stamps coordinates and by adding a couple of other embellishments you can create an assortment of very cards for your stash.

For the following card I embossed the card stock with an embossing folder by Darice to add texture and background to what otherwise would have been just plain white card stock.

For the following card I used the butterfly stamp and colored withe Tombow markers and then used my Spectrum Noir glitter brush to add a little shimmer.

Here are the rest of the cards made by just coordinating the patter and the tags and papers all came in the kit.

 

One final note I draw inspiration from the booklet that came with the papers as well as just laying out the elements until I had a layout I liked.

Well hope to come back soon now that the groove is back and I hope you got some inspiration from my crafty journey.  As I tell myself often, “Nourish your mind and soul with some creative adventures.”

Take care

Connie

"Behind every great crafter...Is a huge pile of craft supplies" -JoAnn   Cheeky but true! I love craft supplies as much if not more than trashy paranormal romance novels. I felt it was time to get down to business and actually use all these craft supplies and make pretty things. Would I be successful? Who knows! But now one will be able to accuse me of not giving it all I got. Which is the reason I started this blog, to share my crafting adventures (or most likely mistakes) with the Internet.   Sad but hey I don't have much of a social life and my husband isn't very interested in hearing about crafts! He's much more interested on how the Patriots or Red Sox are doing than listening to me talk about stamps, cardstock and die cutting.   Paper crafting as you will see is my first crafting passion but as any decent crafter would tell you is impossible not to dabble on all other kind of crafting experiments, hence the name wondering mindfield. So look around and hopefully I will inspire you to try something new, make some "creative" mistakes and relax while creating something "pretty." Thank you for visiting and come back soon!
