Artistic Projects - Template Inspiration






This week Betsy from Innovative Stamp Creations asked us to dust off some of the ISC images that we've had for a while and create three Artistic Projects based on inspiration pieces. Today's inspiration is a template card - I chose to make a Template Wall Hanging Beautiful Spring:




This piece was created on an 8x8 piece of 1/2 wood. I kept the color palette simple using my new distress inks Bundled Sage and Victorian Velvet. I added the pink to all the images to help pull your eyes to each element.

So why not dust off some of those old images you have not used in a while, find your missing Mojo or try something new?




Leave a comment on this blog post for your chance to win a free stamp sheet from ISC. You can post on each day, now through Wednesday, to increase your chances to win! Good Luck!

Kat, I discovered your blog not too long ago and absolutely love your style! Love this latest piece from you. It reminds me of the old colorblocking templates we used to see in the store that are no longer available.

Maybe we'll meet in Akron!
