First, I want to apologize to Karen for dropping the ball on OLW124 last week. Her doodling challenge was adorable!
Second, I want to jump on Ardyth's OLW125 before my brain farts again.
Oh, I'm sorry. Was that vulgar? Sometimes I type inappropriate things.
Anyway, on to Ardyth's OLW Challenge, which is to make a card that represents your perfect day. In a sense, this is a really hard challenge because what constitutes a perfect day for you? Maybe it's an easy question for you, but my brain is all over the place. So much makes me happy that fitting it all on a 4.25" x 5.5" card seems impossible, especially if I want to leave some white space. Ardyth solved that problem beautifully on her card, with a fabulous graphic representation of 12 things she loves.
I went in a little different direction and came up with a rather wild card for me. You see, my brain, despite its occasional flatulence, is a good brain, and I'm rather fond of it. It has a hard time going to sleep at night because the world is such an interesting place and there are so many wonderful, beautiful people and things to think about. As much as I crave simplicity and white space, my brain will have none of them.
Which is why I'm just a little bit weirdly contradictory, you know.
In all honesty, my perfect day is messy and busy and full.
So here is a messy and busy and full card.
Please note that there is some order in the chaos: the triangle created by the pink, fuschia, and orange elements; the straight lines of the beaded bars and sentiment; the trios of orange and lavender.
Doesn't the jagged line of beaded bars look like a heartbeat? Irregular, of course, just like me.
Uh-oh. Instead of irregular, let's say atypical. Yeah, that's better.
Click on over to OLW125 and play along! I look forward to checking out your perfect day!
