Do you remember when you went to take your first driver’s test? Oh, the anxiety – “Did I remember to adjust the mirror? Did I wait long enough at the stop sign? What did the instructor just write down? Is it good, is it bad? Am I going to have to take this test again?” Regardless of all the anxiety, passing sure is a great payoff! It’s a rite of passage – especially in car-dependent Atlanta.
Tips, Tricks and Reminders:
- See it for what it’s not. The image used to make the stoplight is from Label Love, a new stamp set in the 2013-2014 Annual Catalog (that, by the way, is offered in a bundle with the coordinating punch). By now, you know that I love to find different ways to use products – to use them in ways for which they weren’t designed. You have to see things for what they aren’t to do that.
- Line it Up. My last “tip” was to see things for what they are not. This one is similar – look at things from a different angle when you want to line things up. For example, when I wanted to line up these traffic lights, I turned the Basic Black strip sideways to give me a different perspective. It allowed me to see them in a different way so that my judgement about how the final image SHOULD look didn’t impair my ability to get it lined up properly. I do the same with small sentiments – position them corner-to-corner on the clear block – it forces me to really see whether it’s lined up – without being fooled by the edges of the clear block.
- Watch those colors! I have lots of layers of card stock from the design of this card. I tried different combinations but had to abandon plans at almost every pass. Why? The green and red combination kept looking like Christmas – definitely not what I was going for when I made this card for Daniel. 🙂
