APRIL 2016 BLOG HOP

Blog-hop-logo

Blog hop inspiration

At first glance it may seem like this beautiful artwork would inspire a geometric project of sorts. Dig deeper! Look at the way the different intensities of the colors look when layered together. Experiment with layering stencils, stamps or even vellum die-cuts in a similar way. Get inspired by the unique color scheme and the earthiness of it. Use the design as a jumping point for your layout and create your own sketch from it. Enjoy your process and explore outside your comfort zone!

So, I forgot to make mt Blog Hop card! Totally forgot until late last night!

So as I was looking at the post on Nicole's blog I saw that Diana K called one of her cards, which is AWESOME by-the-way, OBVIOUS...

Well, here is OBVIOUS-er!!!


I always struggle with being literal. I cannot help it.
Could this be more literal? More ...obvious-er?
Even to the point of not adding a sentiment.


I found some red and Fine Linen colored vellum in my stash.
I just used a series of circle punches.


I didn't even pop anything up. That is a true testament of my sticking to the inspiration. I pop EVERYTHING up!

Blog friends...meet OBVIOUS-er!

Thank you for looking at my blog!
Susan
