We had a lovely day on Tuesday for craft day at Karla's. So lovely that I didn't take a single photo! It was just nice to sit and visit and craft...and enjoy a pitch-in lunch that was delectable and spring fresh.
I started a project that I read about on Mary's blog. She calls it a glue book and at our last craft day I had the pleasure of seeing it upclose. In a Moleskine pocket size sketchbook, she limits herself to paper and glue only (no paint, rubberstamps, etc.) to create lovely collaged pages.
I was enamoured with her little book and the idea of using paper and glue only. Sometimes (often?) I find myself overwhelmed by the possibilities in a mixed media collage project and spend too much time making decisions instead of enjoying the process. Probably that pesky perfectionist in me that I'm constantly fighting! The glue book would also provide another place for some of the ephemera I've collected over the past many years.
On Tuesday, I glued backgrounds to a half dozen or so pages and completed two pages. It was fun and something I could easily do while we talked. I'm really looking forward to doing more too...remembering that it's supposed to be fun and to shoo away those perfectionist pests should they show up to "play"!
