Hehehehe!! I KNEW that post title would get your attention!!! (I really shouldn't be typin' these things up when I should be sleepin' instead!!
I hate when I get in a rut ... you KNOW what I'm talkin' about ... when everything you make seems to look the SAME as everything else you make??? I've really been making an effort lately to try and shake up my layouts ... I seem to revert back to a similar looking layout all the time. Which is what inspired this card. I used this as my sample for the Free for All challenge I hosted over on SCS today ... Crossing Strips. Pull out all those paper strips you have been saving in your scrap pile ... c'mon, now!! I KNOW you have 'em!! Pieces you just can't BEAR to throw out 'cause you MIGHT be able to USE 'em?? Go for it. Remember when Egon tells the other "Ghostbusters" not to cross the streams??? Fuhgetaboudit!!! CROSS 'EM!!
The challenge is basically to use paper strips and cross them over each other to create some sort of pattern for your card ... I think this one may stretch some WAAYYYY out of the zone, but that's what I'm hoping for. There are already some really fun and creative ideas showing up in the gallery. Check it out!
