I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and for those of you who get the whole week off I hope you are relaxing and enjoying whatever you are doing. I have spent a lovely few days with my husband and daughter, eating Christmas food, and enjoying the time away from work.
One of the things I do to relax is to create, and this week at Paper Lovin' Gals there is a great inspirational picture to help the creativity flow. I think this picture is a great break away from the Christmas theme we have had for a few weeks, and a reminder that 2012 is just a few short days away. The inspiration I have taken from this picture is the rosette and the colours - what will inspire you? The layout, colours, theme ... it doesn't matter really because you can join in by creating anything that was inspired by this picture, a scrap page, card, 3D item or even something not paper craft related! So pop over and join in this week.
I also took inspiration from the Mojo Monday sketch this week.
I just love making rosettes, and this was no exception, this one is made using 2 pieces of 6" x 1" card stock which I scored at 1/8" and then fan-folded and joined. The next part is a bit fiddly, you need to adhere the ends together to form one loop then wiggle it until you lay it flat. I adhere mine to a 1" circle at the back to help me keep it in shape while the glue dries. I added a Calypso Coral flower using the Triple Layer Blossom Bouquet. Can you spot the two new products that will be part of the Sale-A-Bration rewards in January? The little brad and the Lucky Limeade Organdy ribbon that I have layered over some Calypso Coral ruffled ribbon and a small strip of white card stock. I am loving the effect this gives.
Thanks for dropping by.
