justjohanna contest entry ~~ NOT!

Why can't I ever follow directions? Do I march to the tune of a different drummer? I didn't think so, but this is not the first time I've attempted to follow a "recipe", only to find out, when I'm finished, that directions really aren't my thing! I'm going to show you, maybe even enter this card, anyway in the justjohanna sketch contest. After all, it's my creative spirit on the line here. There are three pictures: one with the window closed, one with the window opened and one of the inside of the card.

It was a lot of hard work staging this photo. I read the tutorial by Erin K about how she takes her photos and tried to follow it. However, I had it all set up, camera in hand, I had even pressed down halfway on the button when all of a sudden my damn, yeah, damn, cat, Hank, jumped up into the shot! I really cannot write here what I said so, please, just use your imagination, 'k!

I love it! I say enter it anyhow. I mean you looked at the sketch then made this... It's your "take" on it. I love your staged photo too!

Following the same drummer is way over rated!! Originality blooms from going your own way. Your card is wonderful! I look forward to seeing more. I added you to my blogroll.
