No more, guessing which room we get to go to in February for the Verve Inspiration Sketches. Amber has chosen dining rooms - how fun :D
I selected this delightful dining room picture because I just loved the open, airy feel to it and the colours were delightful. My eye was drawn to the orange flowers on the pillows, the gerber daisies and the paned windows in the background (if you click on the picture it will enlarge so you can see it better). That lead me to make my own flowers, which I then mounted on little white squares. Since turquoise is fabulous with orange, I mounted the flowered squares on to a turquoise panel to create my "window" effect (as you can tell, I'm not too good at lining the squares up or cutting them equally - ugh!!) and then layered that panel on to a celery panel. What a fun, dynamic combination of colours!
The horizontal center panel gave me a bit of grief, as it took me forever to find a sentiment that would fit this small panel. In addition, since this is a funky kind of card, it needed a script that wasn't too "formal or proper" LOL! Thankfully, Embrace Life came to the rescue! I stamped it in chocolate chip, matted it on orange to tie in with the flowers and added a brown half pearl on each side of it for a bit of dimension. To finish things off, I matted the main image panel on white and popped it up for a bit of dimension and visible layering. Love how this fun, funky card turned out :D It will be perfect to send to a friend who needs to be reminded to embrace life, enjoy life and seize each day.
Have a fabulous weekend, everyone. I'll be spending a good part of this weekend doing week three of Science Fair project work with my kids! This weekend the kids get to finish collecting data from their experiments, typing it into tables on Word, and collecting background information on their topics. From there, all they need to do is lay out their display boards and practice their presentation speeches. The end is near - yeah!!
