A new style.

Hello there blog land,
     I have been following Becca over at Amazing Paper Grace for some time now. She makes the most amazing intricate cards, go check her out she is awesome. Anyway I find that my style tends to be more clean and simple, and in an effort to step out of my comfort zone I took inspiration from this post and created this;
Not as refined as I would like, but not too shabby for a huge leap outside my comfort zone.  If I had to do it over, (trust me this took hours of agonizing to finish) I would make the flowers smaller and the flourish on the left bigger. I am slowly teaching myself balance and proportion by trial and error.
Paper, ink, and stencil are Club Scrap. Flowers are made with the rolled roses cut file by Bird
Thanks for looking

Grad Centerpiece

     I just realized how long it's been since I posted, where does the time go?  I really have to get better at this posting thing!
     I have been busy with several projects, my favorite of which is a center piece for my niece's graduation open house.  I was inspired by this post on Split coast Stampers.  I used my Cameo to cut files from Birds Cards for everything except the letters. I used a floral foam base and card board canister I got at the dollar store then matched her school colors with card stock.

  I had to mail this to Michigan... Next time I will find a mailing box FIRST then make the center piece to fit inside!  I also really need to get a scorpal if I am going to continue pleating paper it was a serious pain to do all the scoring for the base on my trimmer with just my bone folder.
Well that's it for now hope to post more this week it's the last week of school for my little Boo then we are free for the summer!
