The topic this time is to design a card to inform friends and family of an impending move.
Well THAT'S a familiar topic! I didn't need to think too hard about what I would like to put on my Moving Card. The question is/was could I reproduce my ideas? I'm not what I think of as a naturally talented artist.
If you're familiar with the right brain/ left brain theory ( please note -- theory) I would probably class myself as left-brained -- (but please ignore the science and math aspects.) Most people who know me would say I was pretty strongly left brained dominant. But I have some strong right brain qualities. Color, art appreciation, need to express myself artistically for example. I know what I like but would then have to analyze why I liked it. However imagination is not a strong quality of mine and way-out science fiction or fantasy is not for me either. So I guess I'm a pretty mixed up person!! I know that the mix of the two aspects of my brain can cause me to be hesitant and indecisive. In other words I'm very confident when sitting on the fence!
So my "We're Moving " card has to be accurate. The houses are recognizable. Even some of the things in the Garage Sale are accurate and the gray hair in 2013 is also. One son is blond and the other is curly-haired but that didn't come out too well.
Maybe I should have been an architect or home designer, or perhaps something in home decorating But whatever I did it would have to be traditional and practical with a dash of self indulgence.
