Sneaking a Mojo In

On top of my 30 Day Challenge, I've also begun a new class all about discovering your creative style.  I seem to have courses coming out of my ears. I'm so easily tempted when I see them lol. However, this is a real-time class rather than one which can sit on my computer for when I have a moment's free time. Therefore I don't have the easier luxury of procrastinating.

After completing the exercises for week one, I was asked to produce something, anything, creative.  So, with limited time available, I leapt upon the Mojo Monday Challenge.

It also gave me the opportunity to use Graphic 45s newest collection, French Country. This is the best collection of papers I've seen in a long while and OMG, the gorgeous smell when you open up a fresh new pad of their paper. The solvents hit you and oh they take you to a happy place lol.

Anyway, there were no fancy items added here. I kept it very much as the sketch. The sentiment is one I designed a while back and stored on my computer. The wooden buttons are Prima and the scalloped circle is Spellbinders.

Right, back to the grindstone and going blind with Photoshop

Ooh, I like this, Paul. You know I don't use papers much but the contrasts and tones of this are fab and I love the way you put it together. Excellent!

A lovely "strong" card made with some super duper papers. I too love Graphic 45.
Keep going.
Hugs, Neet xx

Hi Paul,
lovely projects as always, very elegant!
I am sorry that I missed you at Stitches, hopefully next time!

Take care

Love it...the colors and patterns blend perfectly and the trio of trinket/buttons look fabulous!

Ver elegant and restrained but with a nice touch of quirky! We used o get high on the Banda machine on teaching practice - in the days before photocopiers!

Paul have to say very nice. I just bought a sheet of a Graphic 45 paper. I'm maybe going to have to buying one of their paper pack one day, lol. Hope all is well with you.
