Anything Goes, No Plans

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Hello all,

Lori here with some inspiration for the Anything Goes challenge.  It’s challenging sometimes to start on a project without any real direction of where you want to end up.  That is what happened when I was getting ready to make this card.  I wanted to use the Rulers Background and Calligraphy Doll stamps but wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to do from there.  In the end, I decided to dig out my Glimmer Mist sprays and start by building a background.  From there, a card developed.  See the video below for the details.
