Technique Tuesday

Welcome my dear friends and followers and those new to my blog today. I hope you will take a peek around. I am just coming up to my 2 month birthday here, so am still learning the ropes, one day at a time.  I enjoy being able to share my creative work and I appreciate that so many people have found their way to see what I am doing in my little space in cyberworld. 

This piece of have to share today is a piece of art, not a card or a tag. It is a project I have done for a cardmaking class I am taking at My Creative Classroom.  My girlfriend Debra shared a wonderful saying with me the other day that goes like this:

"Your mind is like a parachute, it doesn't take you where you need to go unless it is open".

For this piece of work, I had to open my mind to adapt to new kind of work called a mood board. Although I didn't follow the directions exactly,  what I came up with I really love. We were instructed to  Start with one color, then  to find other colors that would flow with that color and place them in a creative way on our piece.  Then we were to find the opposite color on the color wheel as a contrasting color to add a pop to the page.  So as you can see from my piece, I started with a light orange and moved into the dark orange, than browns and rusty tones,  adding the blue which is the opposite color on the wheel. I also played with shapes and textures with the tearing, button, flower, and the glitz and really love the way this turned out.

I sure don't claim to be a good photographer, but this at least gives you an idea. The picture is about
7" x 7" . I am entering in to a few challenges because I like the exposure it gives me to some of the best designers out there.





 Thank you so very much for stopping by my blog today. Special thanks to you if you take the time to leave a comment. I read each and every one and truly appreciate them.  Please consider joining me as a follower, it would be an honor to have you.


  1. Wow! This looks like a piece of artwork that should be in a museum!!! Love the colors! Thanks for the tip on determining a contrast color - I didn't know this! Perfect placement of the rhinestones, button & flower!

    I think that your photograph is really good - nice & clear with vibrant colors. Well done :)

  2. Very nice! I love your flower and that pop of color blue. Thanks for playing along with us at PCJ and good luck in the challenge. Hugs, Gale DT
