I know it's been ages since I posted anything on my blog. Bet you've wondered, a little maybe,
what's up? So I've spent my summer gardening...I suppose I needed more time away from this side of my creativity to contemplate life and losses. Well, I am inking my fingers, one at a time, back into this creative bloggy world.
When I 'happened' on the Moxie Fab Trigger , which was a funky fall scene in the most vibrant colors, yesterday, I could not resist getting a few more digits inky! I was definitely inspired by the colors in the art, the puffy clouds and the curving hills (think smiles)!
My sky needed Basic Grey's cloud paper from the 'Mellow' group. All the leaves in the oranges and pinks were found in the 'Indian Summer' again from Basic Grey. I used the Leafy Branches embossing folder from CuttleBug on this panel. The sentiment panel (Daisy Bucket clear cling) and bottom mat on the main image are from 'Wander'. And about that main image...I so love this Asian beauties' pensive expression. She (Stamp Francisco) was inked with Wild Plum directly onto white cardstock. I used Art Accents Micro Beadz for her hat. I finished my design with a silver butterfly and a snippet of vintage seam binding. The layout was from the Sketch Challenge 301 over at Splitcoaststampers.
Thanks for all your gentle thoughts these past months. I planted my garden with tender loving care over the summer season and it is rewarding me with a glorious array of vibrant blossoms in autumn. And it has shown me that life just as seasons comes and goes and all the best is planted deep within my soul.
