I do feel that we, as individuals, are all creative to some degree. Crafting has become big business of late because it satisfies a creativity that has probably been latent for many years. The Internet has played a huge part in encouraging this trend.
It pains me to say this, but lately, Education is to blame. Here in Scotland, the Curriculum for Excellence,(our curriculum) emphasises the importance of the Arts in a child's development but, as far as I can see, budget constraints have meant that there is a real decline in the provision of specialist teachers. I know of primary schools where there is no such provision at all.
Ok, off my soap box ...I've almost forgotten the reason for this post!
I visited fellow Aberdonian Suze Bain's blog. Have a look. She is a very talented lady. She takes part in The Crafty Cardmaker's Challenge. This is new on on me but I decided to play along, too. The theme this week is Winged Things.
The stamps used were from Crafty Individuals. i stamped the birds again then cut them out so that they could be decoupaged with Pinflair Glue Gel. I then passed the frame through a Stampin' Up embossing folder before adding it to the card with 3D foam pads. A little ribbon and 3 pearls finished it off.
