Art and Creativity

Happy Saturday everyone!

It's been a bit of a crazy week for me. I was asked by our lead curator to make a card for our producer who, after two years, is leaving our project to focus on an upcoming blockbuster exhibition.

I was having a bit of trouble coming up with concept that would suit her personality. I came across this pic on Pinterest. Sorry I don't have the details! There is a watermark in the top left corner, but I can't make it out. If anyone knows the original artist, please let me know.

And here is my interpretation:

Recipe Card:

Stamps: 'Bonjour' from KaiserCraft (butterfly); 'French Market' from the Tim Holtz Collection from Visual Artistry (Artist sentiment); 'Regal Flourish' from the Tim Holtz Collection from Visual Artistry (flourish).

Paper: 'Precious Moments' from KaiserCraft

Embellishments: bakers twine from 'Typo'; seafoam white embossing powder; love heart punch from Fiskers; beaded flourishes from my stash; large paper doily.

It's been a while since I entered any challenges, since I've been busy with work and participating as a guest member of the Craft Your Passion Design Team for July. As such, I've decided to proverbially get my feet wet again :)

 Enjoy your weekend everyone!
