Had another go at making a shaker card today - I find it rather time consuming, but maybe I'll get better at it if I make enough of them. Also find them very difficult to photograph. I used acetate with polka dot vellum for the background and sequins from my stash. The first try on this card ended in the trash because I didn't think ahead to put the gold thread on first - had it all done and then no very good way to add it.
I think this would qualify as clean and simple (even tho I made it quite complicated it looks pretty clean) for Virginia's View challenge so will enter it in her challenge. White space is a definite quality of clean and simple and if you would like to read a wonderful essay about white space definitely read this by Susan Raihala.
I always have a book going so am going to add "what I am reading" to my blog. I just finished a wonderful novel - "The Light Between Oceans" by M.L. Stedman - it is a fantastic novel about love and forgiveness - highly recommend. Now I am reading "The King's Curse" by Phillippa Gregory - if you are familiar with "The Other Boleyn Girl" which she also wrote and was made into a movie, you might enjoy this book. Most of the time I read British mysteries, but sometime veer off into other stuff.
