Our Creative Corner. Our hostess, Sarah Gough, has a cool challenge this week - she wants to see Your Style. We want to see a card or paper crafting project that exemplifies your style. And we are having a DT call. So show us something that showcases your awesome abilities and tell us about you and your style.
This is what I came up with for my style. The reason for the question mark is that I think it is too bright and that is not typical for me. I love gingham and I love red, but this particular piece of red gingham is very bold and bright. When I had the card all glued together, I stepped back and really looked at it - and wasn't sure if I liked it or not. I don't see anything bad about - nice layout and embellies and technically sound, it's just a little (or a lot) too RED. Too bad my PhotoShop abilities don't extend to just toning down the red a bit - LOL! It all started with a yen to use up some of my hoarded Webster's Pages paper from a couple of seasons back. I got stuck on the cherries and found this darling vintage image to go with the paper - unfortunately I covered up the cherries on the table next to the girl :( The sweet little frame is a Spellbinders die. I covered a piece of light cardboard with the DP and then die cut it. I found just one small doily in my stash and it worked perfectly to wrap around the frame. Then I strung a bit of my new burlap string around it and made a bow. The bottom scallop was cut with a PTI die - same for the tiny heart tag. The lace and crinoline are from my Etsy shop, as is the burlap string and the sweet red buds applique. My tutorial for making the crinoline flower can be found here.
Now how about showing us your style? Stop by Our Creative Corner and gather up some inspiration from our awesome design team and get going on your own submission. We hope you will want to apply for the design team too!
Thanks for stopping by and for your wonderful comments. They are so appreciated. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
