Not the usually staged photo.
I’ve been busy creating a light box. I’d seen something similar around on the internet and then Katy Godbeer made one in the recent Creativity magazine and I thought I’d finally have a go.
I used a Tassimo box as it was white inside already so saved me having to paint it. Here’s the stages-

You just use vellum or parchment paper inside each cut out section.
I need better lights- a stronger watt bulb and then it might be a clearer purer white.
It’s great though for when I’ve got to do photos at night time.
This card has gotten me out of a rut. Do you ever just feel you’re in a ‘meh’ designing phase?
I’ve been there for a couple of weeks- and whilst I’m not definitely out- this card was not such a struggle to put together.
I had seen this piece of art on Pinterest.
Wood is a big trend noticed at the CHA event and I really was inspired by this pin. I’ve used some W plus 9 stamps ( Fresh Cut Florals) and some papers from Cut and Paste ( Amy T/ American crafts) and also some from Sew lovely and the butterfly is from Madame Peyraud (Papermania).
I’m entering this for the Simon Says Stamp ‘Anything Goes’ challenge

Well I’m afraid I’ve nothing funny to tell you. You would have found my contortions in trying to get a photo from the light box amusing. As you would have found everyone in the house stepping over me on the way into the kitchen.
Ah well. I’m used to being in the way!!

See you after I’ve purchased some higher wattage. Maybe it’ll make me shine more brightly if I could get some extra watts for me too!!
