Week #26: WINTER

Tuesday, January 8, 2013

The holidays are done and life is returning to somewhat normal for most of us.  It's time to settle in and enjoy the little things winter has to offer!  This week, let's focus on the season and whatever it brings to mind!


 Let's take a look at what WINTER brings to mind for the design team and Marlou, this week's guest designer!

Guest Designer:  Marlou
 design defined:
By keeping embellishments simple, the main image remains the focus of a CAS design.


Ardyth
design defined:
One stamp is all you need - a little masking and some blended inks take it to the next level!


Jen
design defined:
Using a textured card base gives a little more interest to a CAS card.


Judy
design defined:
Distress inks can add depth and dimension to even small stamped images.


Maureen
design defined:
The image, sentiment and bakers twine create a visual triangle allowing your eye to move easily around this card.


Meghan
design defined:
Paper Piecing is a great way to add detail to a clean and simple card.


design defined:
Monochromatic elements in a CAS design help keep the focus on the main image.
 
 
design defined:
Simple details like a button and a twine bow add just the right amout of interest to a CAS design.


design defined:
Adding an object such as a  branch grounds the owl so it is not lost on the white space.

 
Now go have fun and don't forget to link up your own NEW creation by Sunday at 4 p.m. (CST)!
