Geek is Chic


I was in a creative slump the last few days. I got home on Friday and wanted to create so badly...but, nothing. Saturday I got up wanting to create all day, and nothing! Grrrrr, don't you just hate when you have the time and desire to create and you can't even get started? I printed this super adorable digi, named Carrington, and started by coloring her hair on Saturday. I hated how it turned out and still do. I got up today and colored in a House Mouse stamp that I was given as a gift, but never used...and hated it. So I just kept staring at this image...wondering if I could just start coloring the rest of her and salvage it. I hate, hate, hate coloring something and not using it. I feel like I am wasting Copic ink..lol Anyone else ever feel like that? Anyway, I fired up my Spotify and started jamming out to some tunes.. and got lost in coloring while I sang along to some old favorites. The next thing I know, I have a colored image and some juices are flowing! You have no idea how super excited and proud of myself I was for getting this card completed..lol I felt like it was a huge accomplishment since my mojo seemed to have packed up and went North.

Anyway, since I managed to get it done, I thought I would share it with you. Thanks for stopping by and having a look. I hope your mojo is being nicer to you than mine..lol

  1. Rarely do I trash something I colored! Ink and paper cost too much for me to not try to make it work.. This card is cute! I think she has perfect, mousy, geek hair.

  2. I know exactly what you mean. I've colored a few things that I hate, but I feel like I HAVE to use them! =D Personally, I like her hair. I think she looks adorable, and this whole card really came together nicely.

    Hugs!

  3. This is cute! Girl, your "bad" coloring is better than my good!! LOL. Mr. Mojo is mean like that; he tends to disappear on days that I have time and motivation, too. He's persnickety like that, I guess. Anyway, I'm glad you could use the doohickey. It looks good! Love that sentiment, too.

  6. Mojo looks like it came back with a bang! Image is colored beautifully and the design works perfectly. The color block happens to me all the time...I just walk away or run depending on how irritated I am:)!!

  8. Know what you mean about Mojo taking a holiday! But you certainly dragged him back and got him to work. Great image, (could use one like it myself- will have to search for it)and wonderfully coloured.

  9. Tracy, I think Carrington turned out great! Love how you designed your card, too! :^) And we all get "blocked" from time to time! It's great that the music unblocked you!

I got inky this Easter weekend and created this card. I bought this stamp awhile back from Walmart online of all places. I knew I loved the ...
