Creative Slump!!


I have been so UN creative lately in my studio!! I haven't done a SCS challenge in 2 weeks. I don't really have any design team work due right now so I haven't worked on that. The only think I've HAD to work on is a card front swap - 26 of them!! I hate doing large batches of anything so that just sucked the creativity right out of me. They turned out terrible too..... I'm gonna need to go and buy some really cool ribbon to overembellish them with just to hide the rest of the card!!


I think all my papercrafting abilities are being utilized in glasswork right now for work. The studio that I work at manufacturers ceramic tiles and custom stained and leaded glass window. I usually do their paperwork and TRY to keep them organized - but since we just got a HUGE stained glass contract with a casino I've been recruited to learn stained glass work. I love learning new things and I picked this up pretty quick, but wow - it's hard!! I can now complete a window from start to finish and it actually looks pretty good. This job is tough on the hands though... I have all these little cuts on them and they HURT! I'll take a picture of one of my windows later today so you guys can see what I've been up to.


The card that I posted up top was inspired by a Converse sneaker - my daughter LOVE Converse, so I made this card for her. The laces are threaded through punched holes and tie in a bow at the top. I inked the edges to give it a little dimension and to grunge it up.... 'cause clean sneakers are so NOT cool!!


I'm going to work on the template for this and MAYBE post it on My Favorite Things as a download.


Thanks for looking!

Please make the template because I have 3 teenage boys who live to buy more sneakers and it sure would be fun to give this sneaker to each of them.

I am so looking forward to also seeing your windows -- glass is my other love! And, you're right, the cuts hurt -- especially when you get flux in them!!
