Art and Craft

It’s Been Awhile

Hello, my friends!  My apologies that it’s been such a long while that I haven’t posted here.  So much has happened in the last few months, and for much of it, I can’t find the words.  Soon.  Soon.

During this absence, I didn’t do any crafting at all.  In many ways, I felt immobilized.  But I am making my way back.  And I was drawn back to my studio recently, primarily to make a thank you card for a very special couple, my aunt and uncle.  At a moment’s notice, these angels dropped everything and hopped on a plane to Florida to help my family get through a really tough time.  I’ll never forget their kindness.

VivianKehLotusCard_A I have more details on this project and an accompanying video to share on the Sizzix blog today.

Although the die-cut leaves on this card served to frame the beautiful lotus, I have plans to play more just with the leaves and let them shine in a separate project.  I will share those ideas with you here in just a few days.

  4. Baby steps, I think… seeing you posting again is a nice surprise for me and a movement forward for you. May you continue to be supported through the tough times and always. I love your style and my paper craft students love the freedom it gives them to be creative… even the ones who will argue that they are not creative have to smile at the results. Food for the spirit all around.

  5. Beautiful card, Vivian. You’ve been in my thoughts – glad to hear and see that you are getting back into art, which for me at least, has been a profound piece of healing from troubled times. Your spontaneous and freeing use of media has been, and continues to be, a major inspiration – so welcome back!! xx Lynn
