Design Team Inspiration

Aude:  Here is my tag, I used the word "IDEAL" to illustrate this good moment of contemplation towards nature.


Aga:  The IDEAL (wedding) day card made using 'Homemade' and Flora Book Paper Collections by Mintay Papers - our great Sponsor

Asia:  Using the word "IDEAL" was a real challenge for me, because it means something different to each of us. While creating, I thought about the "ideal day for": adventure, conquest of seas and oceans, being a pirate, or death.


Dana:  The Sun Moon Stars Digital Collage Set from Gecko Galz fit my quote about ideals perfectly. I embellished the printed image with glitter paint and glue and then added copper chipboard stars to add a cosmic shimmer to the galaxy background of this artist trading card.

Heike:  We all need IDEAL´s to guide our footsteps" I created a postcard with 13@rts Color Glow and a stamp from the travel the word collection.


Elle: For this month's mini challenge I was inspired by the word IDEAL to think about what I would like as my IDEAL day, and here is the answer "I just want to drink tea, pet cats and read books!"  So I drew a little cat holding a cup of tea, taking a break from reading his favourite book.  The background is a page from a calendar I was given for this year, which is all about cats and books.  Someone knows me too well lol.


Sharon: I made my tag using ink sprays and a favorite quote about letting your IDEALS guide your footsteps. The beautiful butterflies that you see on my tag are from the CoreStack "Anemones & Friends" from ArtStacks!!!


Priya:  My tag for the month with a very realistic quote " Find your IDEAL in something not IDEAL"


Emma:  'The Ideal of calm exists in a sitting cat'.  And sometimes to be a Cat would be IDEAL.  Featuring 2Crafty Chipboard.


Heather:  Card made using a new ArtStacks CardStack.
