Relay Race Blog Hop!

This spring, I participated  in a relay race through e-mails and we are sharing with you the results today!
First, the race started with Nikka who created the original piece, she then passed it on to the next person. That person is the only one who saw the original artwork. What you will find is everyone's inspiration of the original as it was passed around through their own artwork. Ok, its hard to explain so start here and feast your eyes and you will see what I mean!


First, I recived this photo of a card from Corinna to be inspired by.

I really liked the shapes of the layering pieces on the left and the paper flowers. So, I used a template (not a Close To My Heart product) to trace and cut similar shapes for my 12x12 layout. I used the Olivia Level 2 Paper Pack on page 38 of our Spring/Summer 2011 Idea Book. Using the exclusive stamp set from the Sophia Workshop Kit on page 41 of same Idea Book, I stamped leaves and the bird on the designed papers and cut them out. The background flowers are punched with our new 2" scalloped punch and I cut into the center of the flower all around then curled the edges up and down. I stamped the centers with the same stamp set and cut out of cardstock then layered on top of the punched flowers. The brads and buttons are from our embellishment collections. I hope you enjoy your walk thru our blogs and all the different ideas. Feel free to copy mine or even come up with your own creation! I would love to see what you come up with.

Your layout is beautiful! I love how you were inspired by the shapes/design of Corina's card to create it. I can't wait to see it with pictures.

Perfect transformation from a card to a layout yet keeping with the inspiration artwork from the piece. It also looks like you added the color chocolate for your own personal spin on the design.

Tamytha said...

What can I say...your layout is so inspiring...LOL I'm really impressed how you translated a card into a layout. I loved all the shapes going on, but not overwhelming. Great job.

Corina said...

Wow! You added so much more detail, it looks fabulous.
