It is still Raining!
But I am not going to verbose about the state of our weather, which will bore you to death...
What I am going to confabulate about though is the current Challenge over at"Less is More" a colour theme which is Predominately Purple.
Purple is the colour of good judgement.
It is the colour of people seeking spiritual fulfilment.
It is said if you surround yourself with purple you will have peace of mind.
Less is More is a Challenge Blog, where the guidelines are to ensure your entry is
Clean & Simple.
A design of card with clean lines, minimal elements, areas of white space and few or no embellishments.
I have made a card, even though my definition of a CAS is probably different to Chrissie and Mandi.
But I wanted to participate as I have a penchant for this colour, and there are not too many Challenges that choose this colour for a theme, so I was excited when I saw the Challenge, but I then became morose when I saw it was Less is More.
How supercilious does this sound?
It is just irksome to me, as I have to admit to myself that I am not good at creating such cards (and this does not sit well at all). But I have another idiosyncrasy in my Character and that is tenacity.
(it sounds better than pigheadedness)!!!!!!
I used this little teeny weeny part of my personality to make the card, to prove yet again that I will not be beaten by a mere Acronym!
I started with a Purple CS.....
well so far so good....I dug out my under-used Alcohol Inks
and dabbed wild plum, purple twilight and stonewashed, onto a piece of Acetate until I was happy... it took awhile, and you can imagine the state I and my desk was in by the time it was finished; I forgot to use gloves!
Of course this is where I ponder and cerebrate, as opposed to celebrate......
What to do now?
I could leave it as is, it would just be with-in the formula.
But it needs a focus a contrast to create an impact, so I added the HA sentiment with the striped paper-clips.
This is the close -up
The lines were created by embossing through the Vagabond.
This is where I most probably have disqualified myself in this Challenge.
I am hopeless, there is always that little bit of devilishness in me to break the RULES.
But whatever I will enter anyway, as I keep trying and hopefully the rules of engagement will kick in at some stage!!!!
Have I obtained Peace of Mind?
Perhaps there was not enough Purple around me........yeah right!
It has been an enjoyable 30mins telling you about this I hope I have not fatigued you with my missive.
Have a good week
