Spring is busting out all over Indiana and I have been driven to think about women “in bloom”. I was inspired by a makeup ad in “O” magazine. The background in these notecards came from the ad. It shows women in “bloom”…women of all races, ages and types. I wanted to use these really remarkable pages to create cards dedicated to strong women. When creating my first card, I focused on FUN. I wanted the card to have a light-hearted spirit and to make you laugh. Strong women can laugh at themselves after all, in fact, nothing shows strength more. I hope it gives you a giggle.

With my second card I wanted to add a soft touch but combined with strength. Kind of the yin and yang of the modern woman. I think the images work well together and I love the soft, gentle colors.

Time got away from me! I really want to post something at least once a week so stay focused girl!

 

I had a fun day yesterday working on collages. I found a very unusual image in a magazine advertisement for PLUMBING. It was bluish and eerie and I decided to try to make a notecard with it. I combined it with a beautiful floral background cut from a housewares catalog and fish and shells from various magazines. I think the image is provocative and whimsical and unusual.

 

 

I also created two bookmarks. I am working on a set of bookmarks for the veterinary staff that I visit so frequently. I do love my dogs! These little gifts are proving to be a real treat to give. I dropped off 14 bookmarks for the staff at my local library last week. Talk about dedicated readers! Who could use them more?
