Hello, fellow crafters....that means YOU! And welcome to the
POWER OF PRACTICE BLOG HOP!
For those who are just starting out in your card making, I have something very important to tell you....PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE! Yep, that's what I said. If you have a desire to start making cards or you've already just started, BRAVO for you! And if you look at your card and say...UGH! This sure isn't as good as the others I've seen! Well, take heart, my crafty friend....everyone has had to start somewhere! So don't give up! All it takes is practice. Even if it's just a few minutes a day or week....DON'T GIVE UP!
So, let me share with you a card I made for my first Design Team project (I'm actually surprised they accepted me). I totally was learning...totally! Here it is (from My Besties):
Now, while this isn't my very first card...I have no idea where that is...it is one of my very first cards! I was learning at that time how to actually color the images. The fancy fold design was ok, but that coloring! I had a lot to learn! And, I'm still on that Design Team!
Here is one of my most recent cards I made using an image from Stephanie Sybile Art:
One of the things I did as I went along, was look at a lot of YouTube, Pinterest, and fellow designers to get ideas and tutorials on how to color, adjust the size of images, and so on. And then I'd practice doing those things. After doing thousands and thousands of cards...okay, maybe not thousands...I have come a long way, but I am still practicing. There is always room for improvement! But the point is, DON'T GIVE UP! If it's truly something you want to do, then it's important that you KEEP GOING!
Now here is the Line-Up for the Designers who are participating in this hop. Be sure to check them all out...some may have prizes!
