Back to basics

I've been pretty stressed that past couple of days and was starting to feel like there was no point to crafting anymore. All the fun had been taken from it and it had become just another of those things that drained me. Well I sat thinking this morning where did this all start, it wasn't with doing challenges, wasn't with trying to please everyone. It started with me putting my ideas down onto paper and seeing where it led me so that is what I am getting back to. I am still in the DT for Tuesday Alchemy, an I will still do challenges but they are going to be what I want to do and not what others expect or want to see.

My work doesn't always make sense, it's not always all that good but somewhere in my somewhat messed up mind it's just what I needed to do at that moment.

I have made a tag today, a very basic tag, the background was created with glimmer mist and I used Tim Holtz stamps in chalk inks for the 2 main images the leaves are from an Anna Griffin background stamp.

Both of these sayings is how I am going to work from now on.

Aw! Sorry your feeling a bit stressed Hun! What a great stress buster though! Going back to basics! This is far from basic though Hun its fab! And crafting and art is all about enjoying what your doing and forgetting the world outside, so you do what you want when you want to and if people don't like it then tough! Xxxx

Hi Shelley, I love this tage very much and the beautiful stamps from Tim Holz are fab. The leaves look brilliant the way you have displayed them falling down the tag.

I hope you feel much better soon and you craft the way you want to hun it is what I do no matter whose digi's, stamps etc I use.

Big Hugs
