I'm getting a lot of cardmaking accomplished, but I'm not too pleased at where I am in terms of my rubberstamping. I spend hours looking at stamping magazines, surfing Two Peas just gazing at the samples. And, whenever I try to create a card, I am very "layout challenged". For me, I stamp the image, color, and then put in the center of the card, and use some frames around the image. I just don't know where to go from here. Is this a normal frustration? I guess I just don't yet see beyond the central image. I don't scrapbook, so maybe that's one reason why this may be true, but even whenever I am given a layout challenge on Two Peas, I simply can't follow it, without forcing it.
I am pleased with my coloring of images, lately. Guess I need to focus on the positive. For instance, this Penny Black image was colored with Peerless Water Colors, which I haven't used much because of past frustrations.
Maybe that's it. I guess, the key is to never give up, and that eventually, I'll grow out of my frustrations.
