Hey there! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. I was able to hang out a bit with friends, finally finish up some projects, and started digging myself out of my craft space. It is really a mess. Well, now it is starting to look a little more like normal. Boy, that's a huge sigh of relief. I did record a video, but it looked REALLY bad and that's no way to introduce you to my space. At first, I thought it would be good to share a space, a real space, one that is not staged like the studios you see photographed in magazines or on blogs. But, we see messy spaces every day - in our own rooms - right?! So, I'm cleaning it up a bit so I can share with you my photography studio and related posts later.
Anyway, today's card is about being inspired. I am inspired by so many things, people, and feelings. I create based off emotion for the most part, which is why most of my designs are 'bold and new' and do not necessarily fit a design style and I am perfectly fine with that. I like not fitting into a mold. It's what I call "art!"
This card was inspired by my other card here. I think you can take your own works and copy them like I did here by using some of the same techniques. Here, I was inspired by the product (patterned paper), technique (distressing edge), and the sentiment.
What is inspiration to you?
- Trim diamond patterned paper to about 3.5” x 4.5”, distress the edges, then mat on black patterned paper. Adhere the paper on an A2 pure poppy card base.
- Adhere tag on black cardstock, trim, then set eyelet.
- Add ribbon and button treatment to tag, then adhere to card front.
- Stamp sentiment, add ink, then pop off card front.
