Peacock Plume Trio

Hello All,

Well, it has been awhile since I posted anything but DT cards. Well, some time has freed up and I am back at it!! For today I will be playing along with Freshly Made Sketches. I may be a bit rusty but here it goes, my card for today, enjoy!

This card draws on the direction of the feather.
Your eye makes the connection to the upper left corner of the card.
Also, the framed feather points to the upright feather which points to our directional feather.
Lots and lots of white space make these plumes pop!
A detail shot of the peacock feathers.
The framed plume was masked to allow the colored plumes seem to be behind the frame.

So where have I been? For those of you who are curious, I have a small part-time job at Michaels (a nation wide craft store). I was hired as a cashier last November but then quickly became an instructor for Kids Club and Camp Creativity. This entails teaching kids between the ages of 3-10 how to be more creative. Teaching them colors, materials and how they work together to create a composition and lots more! Every camp day I would have a 'big' word for the day- like adhere, catapult, ombre, etc.  Camp Creativity has come to an end so now I am back to working just one day a week. My time with the kiddo has been very rewarding by seeing these kids grow in their creativity. A treasured experience that is for sure. 

Well I am done for now. Thank you for stopping by and looking forward to reuniting with you in Blogland. Take care and happy stamping!

All the best,
Shawna
