I need challenges to get my muse going these days. I can't remember if I shared my (seemingly annual) goal of using more of my stash and buying less. I have SO MUCH STUFF in my creative space. It's ridiculous...like really. I can barely squeeze my bod in there to get creative which is certainly a wee bit counter productive.
Anyway, back to the challenges part. MFT has three challenges going on right now - use the word 'celebrate', a color challenge and a sketch challenge. In the spirit of "Yippee, what the hell!" I decided to take on all three PLUS use some stash for one card.
I have LOADS of patterned paper packs that I've bought over the years. (This isn't even all of it. I was afraid the pile was getting too heavy and have another stash over in a corner.)
I hardly ever reach for them as I originally purchased them for scrapbooking and I don't really do that any more. Plus I just think it's tricky to use patterned paper - I'm a solid paper kinda girl, I guess. But I did it! Feeling very impressed with myself that I dipped into the stash, managed to sneak in all three challenges, and completed them on time. Ha ha.
I hope I can keep this up!
