So, I decided deep within myself that I just had to do this! I wanted to work on my father's day cards (motivated by my sister) and I had an idea to use some dvds that I purchased a while back. As soon as I looked at the Dick Tracy dvd cover I knew I had to duplicate it! My sister said I was crazy for doing it and we just laughed about it. I showed the card to my daughter and had trouble convincing her that I hand cut this image. Funny thing is, she was here at my home while I sat and worked on this card! I decided to take photos of, not just the card but of the steps involved in it's creation so all of you could see my process. I will let you all know that I do have an art background so challenges like this one make me feel alive! I'm normally happy with the outcome and interested in what others have to say about them. When I challenge myself like this, it helps me to know that I am still here, that the gifts GOD gave me are still intact, and that the 4 years I had art as a major was not a waste! When I look at something and it speaks to me... this is what happens. Thanks for stopping by! Bethann - aka - PawwPadd
PS. I must say, after I put this much work into a card or any craft item I plan on giving away, it's hard for me sometime to know whether or not the recipient will appreciate it for what it is and that makes parting with it that much more difficult. Do any of you ever feel this way?
