I didn't get an opportunity to post early this morning. With summer camp in full swing we're (my son & I) on a new schedule. I usually have time to post in the morning before heading off to work, but that's not the case now, but that's okay. Leaving for work earlier in the morning has its benefits--I leave the office earlier in the afternoon.
A new found found friend over at SCS warned me that challenges could become as addictive as much as the craft we love so much. I will say the challenges are doing what their intended to do--they're causing me to push myself a little further. Although, I can't say that I am addicted to the various challenges out there, I am having a good time participating and learning too. If nothing else the sisthahood (and I say sisterhood because I have not come across any men out there) of the cardmaking/scrap booking/special project world is soooooooooooo supportive in uplifting their fellow crafters and not enough is ever said about the subject. If I could just take all the wonderful comments~and I say wonderful because I don't think I have ever had a bad comment. The notes left behind are uplifting, encouraging, or inspiring. Well if I could just take all the comments and convert them into a daily vitamin, I wouldn't bother selling them. I would just give them away. I have said it before and I'll say it again, "Thank you for all the kind words you have left on this blog, via e-mail, or on SCS. I really appreciate your kind words."
Now onto WMS Challenge #3
This is the sketch in which participants are to work from....
And below is my submission...
The papers and the colors puts me in the mindset of Summer time--more specifically, a hot Summer's day.
As you can see I sewed the a couple of the layered papers together. I topped-off the brad in the center of the flower with white glitter to represent white sand and the netting behind the flower reminds me of coral reefs beneath the sea.
Thanks for your interest and your inspiration.
Come back to visit me at The Peddler's Gallery real soon.
