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.
