First Ever

This is my first ever piece of work outside my journal and with a FACE!!! Alice Carman was so generous. A totally kind stranger sent me ribbon (and halfway across the world)  to experiment with in exchange for making something for her. This is my attempt. I think much needs to be improved. I am also feeling a little insecure about putting it out there for all to see. Ironic isn’t it. I can spill my guts in a grief journal and post it but this gives me a nervous tummy. So be gentle with your criticism – there will be a time I ask for constructive feedback – just not today.

The bad thought bird will flyover head – don’t let it build a nest in your hair. (1)

Alice Carman makes the most amazing cards. Please check out her work. She uses her tools creatively like, ice cream cone trees. I tried my hand at card making, my style, and what follows is the result.

A card for Alice with more ribbon gifts.
