Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: Get Your Hair Wet!
Have you ever not done something because you didn't want to get your hair wet? I may have been guilty of this a time or two - not wanting to go for a swim because it might mess my hair. Not wanting to go for a walk in the rain because my hair might frizz. Not venturing into heat and humidity because I might come back looking like I had put my finger in an electric socket. I used to think about it a bit, but when I lived in Oregon that all seemed to change. There was often a mist/drizzle that accompanied the days during my time in Oregon and it was during those years that I seemed to become more comfortable in my skin. I actually stopped wearing make up and worried less about my hair - it was a time of peeling back and feeling free. I am happy to report that I have carried those lessons with me...sometimes forgetting them for brief periods...but mostly remembering that I need to jump in and not worry about getting my hair wet!
Today's card is a simple example of how to create interest with a background. I used the bouncing brayer technique to create the background and then just stamped over it with early espresso ink and the stamp from From My Heart. a piece of natural trim tied in a knot adds a textural touch. I hope you like it!
