Stella Layout

Inspired by another sketch... this time a layout from a sketch I found on the Let's Scrap Blog. I saw the sketch last week and immediately thought of the Stella papers. This is my version... without the photos of course (will add some later).  The weather is overcast and dreary today, creating a photo challenge. No matter what I did, I just couldn't get a picture that would do the layout justice.

This is the sketch I followed:

Whew!  Two projects in two weeks time... I'm on a roll (haha)!

I Whaley Love You

I haven't been feeling very creative lately.  I have so many ideas floating around in my head, but I can't seem to translate them into a finished project.  Yesterday, I decided to challenge myself to make a card.  Simple enough, right?  I selected the Mojo Monday design for this week and decided to incorporate the Heart 2 Heart Challenge into it as well.  Four hours later, I completed my card.  Does creativity always take that long, or is it just me?

The base of the card is clear, so the whale "floats" on top of the background, and I added 3-D foam tape to the waves.  The pieces are attached to the card using liquid glass.  I cut the oval, scallop oval, and background shape using the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge.

Maybe I should challenge myself more often...
