What is exciting you ask......being asked to join a design team for one and I was asked!!!
The new Challenge Blog -"House of Cards" and this week it is the turn of the Shabby Chic/Vintage Team, if you have been on the moon this month and have not caught up on this blog and it's different format, hop over here and read all about it!
For the past three weeks we 'Shabby-Vin' girls have been waiting in the wings to display our wares, it has been a lesson in patience to say the least, but now the week is here and we are in the spotlight.
The rest of the team have given you amazing inspiration from this photo, in the various genres, so if you are someone who wants to try different categories then this is the place you need to be!
I love turquoise..... forget about the sweeping generality that all blues are serene and sedate, brilliant Blues add a whole new dimension to this cool family and turquoise is dynamic and electric, it is an engaging colour and expresses exhilaration, it is warm and playful as it carries a undertone of Purple, so it pleases the eye.
My image is G45 (Little Darlings) and for once in my creative mind I knew how this was going to play out, and it all came together beautifully.
This is a genre that does not suit everyone, but you learn so much about design, element placement and how different media work together, it is so satisfying, albeit labour intensive.
It is a Challenge after all and it is great way to extend your creative mind.
The Bg is hand painted, stamped, hand stitched and dry embossed.
Spellbinders diecut also painted and dry embossed.
Flowers have been purchased.
Hope you will join us this week at House of Cards, I would love to see your interpretation of the colours.
Have a great week and thanks for the visit.
