Mojo Monday #36
I really love Julee's Mojo Monday Sketches on her blog, Poetic Artistry. Having a sketch to work from makes me try different layouts and I find I end up loving them and then using them again for other cards! Sketches are great when you have a creative block... you can just start laying out the cardstock and half the work is done for you! I always thought I'd feel "trapped" by a sketch, since I would have to lay it out a certain way. Amazingly enough, I find it quite the opposite--I feel free to think differently than I would on my own, since I tend to be "safe." (sticking with what I know.) This was her sketch this week:
Here is what I whipped up during the baby's nap. (I hear him now, so I will have to go get him after I publish this post!) I think this card is so bright and Spring-y!!! (Is that a word?) I used Almost Amethyst, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery and Apricot Appeal, along with a retired stamp set, Happy Harmony, which I *think* was from last year's Sale-a-bration.
I'll be back with more later, hopefully even today! Have a marvelous Monday!
