This shape I created for the Ivy Scraps Meet The Designer challenge, 'Show me your shape'. The name of it not only represents the designer in the spotlight this month, but reflects the variety of the uses the shape has. It's not quite a paisley shape, not quite a tear drop.
This is a mini full size scrap kit, inspired by the birth flower for May. Specifically it is the Lily of the Valley, but can be extended to include lilies generally. I decided to focus on the Lily of the Valley as it is one of my favourite flowers. The colours were inspired by a Lily of the Valley plant.
The kit contains:
4 papers 1 Border 1 Bow 1 Envelope 1 Fastener 1 Frame 1 Mayfly 1 Notecard 1 Pearl Heart 1 Ribbon 2 Word Art 1 Lily of the Valley
All papers and elements are full size (3600px x 3600 px), 300 dpi resolution.
The word art 'humility' and 'sweetness' are the words that the Lily of the Valley represent.
It began life from colours I'd selected from a photo of the Orion nebula, and I changed the kit name half way through. So the papers are labelled 'Orion' and the elements 'Hearts and Butterflies', hey I'm a woman, it's my perogative to change my mind.
The second is FULL SIZE only. It's a mini kit I created for the Colour Challenge at Ivy Scraps, the colours were a rainbow selection so I decided to go with 'Sweet Treats'.
This week I joined IVY SCRAPS . I haven't explored the whole forum but have loved what I've seen so far. One of the areas I've spent a lot of time in are the Challenges. The Shape Challenge has been the only one I've managed to participate in, but it was indeed a challenge, to be given a shape and make something from it.
This is the design I came up with. It's a full size frame 5 x 7 inches.
