Its a double the pleasure double the fun kind of Mojo Monday day! Not only do I , Alda, bring you the sketch, I bring you my inspirational project using the sketch as well... and its a card - Mojo Monday is not for layouts alone !
Using a sketch one has to get a little creative, but, the creative plans are there. I used the oval inspiration as my base, and the mixed art layers from the sketch, well those turned to papers for me. To scale the sketch down to card size, the embellishments adorn the upper left hand side as oppose to a large butterfly or dragonfly, because of the flower cluster below ( its more pleasing to the eye) . I took the tags from the sketch and used them as my sentiment/card title and with a little cheese cloth tucked in here and there I was able to create a little airy feel.
My new found love - oh my the die cut from memory box that we just got into the store Fresh Foliage 98502. You may have leaf die cuts but not like this one ... its gorgeous and I only had to cut it twice and look at all the tucked in leaves ....a perfect size die cut for card makers!
The flowers are an array of mixed hand made ones. flying unicorn and petaloo. I have a box where the left over flowers go and I pull it out now and then and try to use up my stash ... Little Petaloo berries are tucked into between the flower clusters giving another element which adds a unique dimension of flower clusters ... so next time you create use a berry, pearl, brad etc and tuck it in to create additional capturing of the viewers eye.
I was hoarding, but finally broke into my Maja Design 6x6 Summer Vintage papers. They are my colors, my designs, a shabby vintage gorgeousness each sheet. We have a few left in the store ... This collection is really a must must have for all the shabby lovers out there ..
Alpha's are from long long time ago Prima ... I love little alpha stickers, those I do not hoard but collect that is a guarantee . Whether on layouts, cards, tags, adding a word, saying, they are always handy and perfect.
In order to apply a word and make sure it it straight I first apply it to a strip of paper and then glue it onto my creation - this little tip ensures the title and the word is straight ..
Okay hope you all feel a little more creative and do not forget to join us this week on th e forums and/or on our Facebook page and show off your creation using our sketch .
