Valentine Collage v1.0

Valentine collage

I’m playing with my organized paper. Still. Again. Some more. This is one result from filing my scraps away into their appropriate folders. I got to the pinks and reds and was distracted overcome by creativity.

That happens to us. That’s how 2create was born!

Valentine-collage, details

Why am I calling this “v1.0” you may ask? Here’s what you’re not supposed to do if you’re a blogger. I’ll probably catch some flack from Sam ;) I’m critiqueing my project.

It is v1.0 because I’m not thrilled with how the bottom right square of this 4-patch style collage turned out, ESPECIALLY in these photos!!! For one, I used Sakura clear Glaze pen around the edges of the solid-like hearts, and although it gives a cool result in real life, it doesn’t photo so well.

Another reason, and why I will likely redo that whole bottom right square: everything was fine until the lasssssst step, when I took the magenta Micron pen around the edges of the heart for a little doodling. It TESTED just fine on my scraps. Doesn’t look that great in real life. Looks ACKKK! awful in these photos LOL… Β Add to that the effects of the glaze pen… Well.

But isn’t that the nature of creativity? Trial and error. Test runs if you’re smart. Willingness to create a do-over if you want it different… so here’s Heart Collage v1.0 for your viewing pleasure. Just don’t judge by the bottom right doodling! ;)

Valentine-collage v1.0, bottom right square will be a do-over!

Ack. But also, love! It’s 90% what I wanted!

Thanks to our friend Stacy for a little late evening critique :) at the halfway point!
