I really enjoy the creative process. It takes quite a bit of time to design a project, but the satisfaction it brings cannot be measured. I'll show you how I transformed the card on the left into the card on the right.
I was intrigued with this image from The Graphics Fairy and wanted to use it on a Valentine's Day project.
I decided to put it on a card, but it looked too plain with the first draft on the left. As I was going through vintage music sheets, I found this Melody of Love tune and scanned it into the computer. I traced and detached the GF image on the Silhouette Cameo and put the words Happy Valentine's Day onto the large red heart. I didn't like the font so I changed it and still knew I had work to do on this card. I get a certain feeling of satisfaction when I know I have completed a project and it hadn't happened yet.
Then just as they say peanut butter and chocolate came together by chance to make Reese Cups, as I was cleaning up my workspace on the Cameo, I noticed that the inside of the heart had been cut out during the process of tracing and detaching the image. I thought about putting the title of the song inside the heart so I pieced two sheets of the music together so the song title could fit inside of the heart. Then I noticed that the ladies arm needed work and some parts of the red in the heart weren't there, so I went back to the drawing board and worked more on the image, bringing the black back to her arm and hand and a little piece of red to the heart.
A large rhinestone was added to jazz up the flower. Then I knew I had completed this card.
With Christmas just around the corner, I'm thinking ahead a little bit.
What is your creative process?
