Here is the sketch I was assigned. A perfectly good design...but it just didn't resonate with me on this day.
First, with a green background that said nature and went with the color of the fruit while adding in some homemade painted paper I made using a gelli plate. Simple but it just didn't sing to me. Might also be that I'm not a huge fan of green.
Since I wasn't impressed (but was done with it), I tried again to work with the sketch and choose some pictures that I liked more, hoping they would give me that happy feeling. I love Christmas Gingerbread houses and we were able to go through a BIG one.
So I like this one better and it actually highlights the negative space a bit more which I liked, but it only felt half way there. And then I remembered- they can't all be winners. Sometimes, good enough is good enough. Hopefully next week when I'm scrapping, I'll be in a better mood. By the way, I'm coming down with a cold. Can you tell from my attitude?
