Jil,
I continue to be amazed by your organization. This idea will save me my former frustration when looking at my rainbow sponged pieces and trying to figure out just which of my 30 or so inkabilities I used and what the sequence was. Also keeping the coordination of colors straight. So simple, but I never would have thought of it on my own.

Thanks a bunch,
Gretchen

1. I write the ink colors, in order, onto a label & attach it to a clear envelope.
2. I then cut several pieces of glossy cardstock into 51/2"x41/4" pieces, and start sponging.
3. When I have used every bit of ink, I will put the papers into the envelope.

This way I know what backgrounds will go together perfectly.
The bolder images are used as my backgrounds. I then stamp a focal image, or two onto the lighter papers. I cut them out & attach them to the bold background. I do attach them with foam tape. That helps them to stand out from the bold backgrounds. I hope this helps you a bit.
Jil my goodness you can tell that YOU are an instructor Just love the organisation tips. Keep them coming
Stamping hugs

sponging

that was a great idea about writing down the colors you used and storing them in an envelope . today i am going to start using the idea. i like to use the whole page . guess i will start cutting them into quarters.

Jil, that is a great idea, to put all of them together and know what colors they have I have some folders but I don't keep them by color so much as by theme. I don't usually want to duplicate my creations, I like that they are always different. I usually use the floral brights but still end up with totally different shades as the colors mix. I supplement the floral brights from Earth tones and the Shady Forest, I find that I have all the colors I use in those.

I usually have problems with making them into cards. I just don't see myself throwing some duets on top like Dee does. That works for her but I am not her! LOL Thank you for the ideas The foam tape will definitely help with the problem...

Sponged Circles

I made an attempt at sponging circles tonight. I didn't like my first effort. Then I let loose and randomly sponged circles, half circles, and quarter circles. Half the edge of my sponge had red ink and the other half, watermelon. I covered the whole sheet. I love it! I think I have to stop trying to be so precise and just go with the sponge.

In the gallery

There are 2 cards in the galley--one with the sponged circles and the other with the sponged squares. The fish one is the one with the sponged circles. I hope you like the 2 cards and they may inspire you to do some yourself, maybe for the swap or the contest.
