I finally finished my Project from My Mojo Monday post!in the Some Odd Girl Facebook Community The challenge was to use a piece of art/ card/ scrapbook project to help you design a card. Sometimes my biggest inspiration to get the Mojo flowing is when I see an illustration or artwork in a medium that I do not traditionally use. In this case, a piece of artwork made digitally from a website called Society 6. I came across an art print last year. (see the red panda print below) What really drew my eye was the geometric background, and I knew I really wanted to recreate it on a card one day.
Kristy had posted photos of Dancing Piper and I knew I wanted to use the idea I had for the background as it sort of reminded me of a disco ball (don’t know why but I felt it worked) So after I practiced colouring up Piper, thanks to the help of my Kit and Clowder Classes, I then cut her out with my silhouette and using a die to make the fun background out of cardstock. I then added a touch of bling with tear drop gems that I got from Michaels a few months ago.
I am really happy with the way her hair and jeans turned out, and now I feel a little more confident colouring up curly hair.
I hope I inspired you to see out other websites/ mediums to help you inspire your next project.
Lots of Hugs,
