Me Time Message #5 - creative

As always I followed Clare's instructions, but along the way there were some oopses (outstanding opportunities presenting suddenly).
After applying gesso to my envelop I stamped some paisley motives all over with Kaleidocolor ink, then I clear embossed circles, but my ink from the paisleys wasn't completely dry yet, so they too picked up the embossing powder, oops#1.
Then while heatsetting the embossing powder the plastic from my window melted off course, oops#2.



Searching the net for quotes about creativity I found so many that spoke to me, but this one fitted in so well with my message and is so true, because the more I create the more ideas pop up in my head for a next project.
Does this happen to you too? And how do you keep track of your ideas? Do you write them down?

  1. Fab project ... Kate Crane says there are no mistakes in art!

    Sometimes I DON'T keep track of my ideas and they just run away with me!

  4. Gorgeous enevelope, colours and the stamps are fab. The quote is really good too. I keep a quote that I like for Oopses and it says: "Don't say, 'oops', say, 'Interesting'" :D

    1. It's the "oopses" that make life "interesting" :-)
