Hi there, Oddies! Leah here, totally thrilled to kick off the week with a huge, happy shout-out to our Guest Odd Girls, Elle and Ellen, who have TRULY brought their A-game and embraced their Oddness as a very appreciated part of our Design Team!
I’m sharing a few of my favorite projects from these lovely ladies, beginning with Ellen… Here’s the first card of Ellen’s I ever spotlighted (I loved all the little things she did to create interest – the punched card, the cut file, the washi tape and the different layers of blue:
And a few selections to show off her techniquey style and mad skillz:
Ellen shares TONS of techniques and tools on her blog (like with the Dove Blending pen, above – SO cool!)- she likes to experiment with different coloring mediums, she combines stamp sets like nobody’s business, and her style is forever changing, evolving, and blowing my mind. I’m so glad she’s our Guest Odd Girl for the next few months! CLICK HERE to visit Ellen’s blog and prepare to spend LOTS of time reading and being inpired.
And then we have Elle (I swear it just happened this way, we didn’t plan it because of the names!)… She’s been playing with Some Odd Girl stamps forEVER too, and my files don’t go far back enough to get the first card I spotlighted, but I’ve always been drawn to her super bold coloring style and the chatter on her blog. Here’s an early spotlight:
Gorgeous, right? Bold and bright. Commanding attention. That’s kind of how I think of Elle’s work. She puts great effort into backgrounds and really pays mind to the detail in her coloring. The last one is my fave of hers EVER. She is also chatty and shares lots of organization tips on her blog, so GO VISIT HER! You’ll want to bust out your markers or pencils and color along.
So I am SUPER thrilled these ladies are joining us as Guest Odd Girls. They rock the deadlines, they put their best foot forward with each project, and I’m sure you’d all agree. Thank you, Ellen and Elle, for sharing this adventure with us! We are honored and very lucky to have you both!
