Very very messy
· Do you plan out your projects before starting or make it up as you go along?
This really depends on what I am doing if it’s for a DT card then 9 times out of 10 you have a theme and sometimes an image to use, if it’s a commissioned card then I ask about the person it’s for i.e what do they like or fav colour so I go with that but then I will sometimes see an image and think I can make a card with that and just see what happens
