Hello Crafty Friends!
Last week I said I would share my resolutions for 2016. The project today has to do with one of those resolutions: inspiration or crafty fun by transforming a deck of playing cards into a weekly project. The idea is to take one playing card every week (52 weeks in a year and 52 cards in a deck) and transfer that particular card into a crafty project. This week I thought I would start with an inspiring, crafty quote from Quietfire Design, "To create is to touch the spirit":
The card transformed into a mixed media project using several mediums from cheese cloth, stencils (TH Flourish, Crafters Workshop Elegant Bracket and Rosetta), Inka Gold...
...Ranger Texture Paste, Dylusions sprays, TH Picket Fence marker "spritzed", gold glimmer mist...
...TH tissue tape, chunky metallic embossing powder, gold glitter embossing powder, gems and Distress inks.
The project is bright, glittery and inspiring. Very happy with my week 1 card. :)
The rest of my resolutions? I always have several each year and this year is no exception:
- Only one soda per week. I usually have one a day (Pepsi). I know that it is not good for a healthy lifestyle so I decided to try to limit or kick the habit. So far this year I have not had any. Yay!
- Save more money. I have a goal amount in mind as my hubby and I are planning three trips in the next 13 months.
- Downsize. Every month I will go through the house and get rid of 15 things. This will not only reduce clutter but will also help me save money as every time I shop I will think "Will this be one of my 15 items I will get rid of in a future month?"
- Lastly, create two Christmas cards a month. Another fabulous excuse to be in the craft room!
So, those are my resolutions. Do you have any this year and how are the resolutions going?
Thank you for stopping by! Have a happy, crafty day!
