Week 405: WINDY

 


Wind is part of life.  Sometimes we just have to hold on and ride it out.  Other times, it pushes us forward and it's smoother sailing.  This week, let's see what this cue word brings to mind for you!

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:

  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note:  It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)

Let's take a look at what the design team and our guest designer created for inspiration!


Guest Designer:  Chrissie
design defined:
Use simple monochrome stamping amid white space.


design defined:
Cluster three small images for a clean look. 



Jacquie

June.  How is it already June?!  This ride called life keeps right on moving along, doesn't it?  It's time for a brand new cue word and this one could produce a rather fun gallery this month!  We can't wait to see what it inspires you to create!

**One important announcement before we continue today!

Joyce is stepping down from the design team after 8 years!!!  Please give her a fond farewell by visiting her blog and leaving a comment there!  We have loved having her as a part of the team and sharing her talent with us!  She will be very missed!
