Week 206: ART


It's time for a new cue word and this one is sure to bring out the creative genius within!

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!)

  1. Thank you! I'm honored to sponsor another CASology challenge and I can't wait to see all the entries this week. Love the theme! Awesome inspiration makes by the teamies and guest designer! Thank you for the ones you've made with my stamps - always fun to see! :-)

  3. I found you via the lovely Bibbi, great to see your fab CAS work....I am delighted to be your newest follower x

  4. Love this specific challenge: lots of crafters are pretty "artsy"-- like it or not, and it's fun to use supplies that we kind of buy for ourselves (maybeee...) more than things like birthday greetings, etc. Also love to see the comment above from teh sponser-- awesome enthusiasm! Makes me want to go buy her stuff!

  5. Wonderful inspiration from the DT!
