Today, I'm honored to be joining some very talented designers for a blog hop to celebrate the CASE Study Challenge Blog's Second Anniversary! Congrats to owner Iwona (Chupa) and her amazing design team!!
Hopefully, you've arrived here from Laurie Schmidlin. If not, head over to the CASE Study blog for a complete list of the designers participating today. That way, you can start at the beginning and work your way around the whole hop! Iwona has put together some fabulous prizes, which you can win just by leaving comments on today's blog hop posts.
Our theme this week is "Out of the Box." We were asked to tackle something we had never done before, such as style, technique, type of project, etc. Sound fun? Then join us! Create your own out of the box project and link it up to the CASE Study blog by next Wednesday, 12:01 EST.
I have two project to share today. Here's the first one:
My "out of the box" elements are the aqua piece, which is a shape I cut with my new-ish Silhouette, the clean-and-simple style, which is definitely not my norm, the bright colors, and the white card base. The shape is a Lori Whitlock design, available in the Silhouette store. The pinwheel was done with a CutUps die from The Cat's Pajamas. And the sentiment is from Kick Some Grass, also by The Cat's Pajamas.
And here's my next project:
For this one, I again went with a more CAS style than is typical for me. And I also challenged myself to use some Studio Calico Mr. Huey's mists that I honestly haven't the faintest idea what to do with. My first attempt to use them with a mask was an epic fail (will keep trying), so I ditched the mask and went with more of an ink splatter look. (I didn't actually spray the mist; rather, I took the sprayer out of the bottle and flicked the drippy end a few times onto white card stock. The sentiment here is from Verve's Always on My Mind set.
Ready for the next stop on the hop? Head on over to Julie Smith at Paper and Such. Enjoy!
