Earlier on in the week, there I was in a brief moment of quiet, craft desk in front of me, black fine liner in hand, trying to figure out some ideas for this week’s Less is More One Layer Card challenge ‘Need for Speed’. I was stuck in the ‘trains, planes, automobiles’ rut and couldn’t think any further … so, I started doodling and eventually, this is what happened …
… a two way traffic jam … (they need speed right?). The colours in the traffic, exhaust clouds and on the scored asphalt road came from Promarkers and for the sentiment … well I was going to use a ‘toot toot beep beep’ Paper Smooches one but it was just too big, so I doodled a smaller one.
After being stumped on this challenge, I now find I have a second entry at LIM … last night’s one layer sparkley dragonfly leap-frogged (can dragonflies do that?) into the first entry slot … and these guys were kept hanging around in roadworks for days, finally tootling home (late) this evening. Traffic jams can have that effect.
Sometimes though, there are unexpected bonuses from traffic jams … there’s one here because the new Simon Says Stamp challenge today has a theme of ‘Transport’ … good timing … love it when that happens.
Moving along … a warm hello to Katie Steiger, the latest Frogger … welcome Katie and thank you for following along :). I only have your email so can’t put a link on, but if you have a blog or gallery, and you’d like me put one on, please do let me know.
I’m off for a lingering wander through blogland … thanks so much for coming by and letting me know what you think … I really appreciate it! Anita 🙂
