spring of 2011! (Obviously I am behind the times.)
Mint green is the Summer of Color's week two challenge color. And so I decided to give it a try. I was influenced in the layout by Mojo Monday's sketch 246. It is really a challenge to try and let the imagination run free while following the spirit of someone else's sketch and color palette. It makes you stretch. As I worked on this, I had no idea what the sentiment would be, and for most of the time, I was feeling like it was a complete disaster! But in the end, I really liked how it turned out, which inspired the saying: "Seeing life as an adventure is the best way to learn." Notice the "cadent" pattern around the design -- I've gotten better at this since the Diva challenge this past Monday, and seeing all of the beautiful work other artists have created in response to that challenge. So once again - deep gratitude to the community of artists out there in the blogosphere! (According to Wikipedia, the term blogosphere implies that blogs exist together as a connected community, or as a collection of connected communities, and it certainly feels that way to me.
Today I hit "send" to register for several workshops in Create's Mixed Media retreat in Somerset, NJ, starting July 18 (my birthday!). I am so excited for this -- it is truly an adventure to look forward to, and I know I will learn so much!
Also this week, I was fortunate to license this design to Leanin' Tree. So hopefully you'll see it soon in a store near you!
Thank you for visiting! If you are so moved, please leave a comment. Hearing from you means the world to me.
