Papertrey's Make it Monday #110 Challenge: Collage Elements. When I first saw the challenge my first reaction was to skip it. Collages are like layers times a million on my difficulty rating scale. Plus cleaner and especially simpler seems to be suiting me better these days and finding a way to maintain that was super difficult. Nothing was working until I remembered CAS(E) this Sketch #21 (which had initially stumped me as well). The sketch seemed collage-ish and gave me some much needed direction (which is the positive part I'm choosing to dwell on considering that after I finished my card I realized that this sketch challenge had already ended...bummer).
(P.S. Thanks for sticking with me. I'm a rambler...I try not to let that happen all the time here, but it seems to be coming out more and more. I guess maybe because I'm gradually letting this blog reflect more "me".)
