Hey there, have you noticed our new Friday format? Week two of the Good Vibe 5 has arrived, Happy Friday, everybody!
A favorite set for beginners and experts alike, Geraniums Take Two in clear and the resizable Geraniums digital set are our Weekend Stamp Steal! Check out inspiration galore using these sets. No code needed for these special offers.
A peek behind the scenes with Marcella from this week: I spent a few days returning to my painting passion, creating artwork for my son’s fifth grade graduation program. It had been some time since I’d gone from pencil directly to paint (you guys know that I normally ink things up!) and it felt so marvelous. A scene of Milkweed and Monarch caterpillars, chrysalises, and butterflies was a real joy to work on outside in my garden. See my process from pencil to the full color image on my Instagram @marcellahawley.
Get spiked for a high-contrast punch of color, paired with a busy monotone pattern — as Julie Koerber’s new porch pillow shows us, this match-up totally works. Try it on a card this week and see where the pairing takes you...
If you make a card inspired by this image, share with hashtag: #powerpoppymoodboard so we can find you and shower you with love. Or link up your card right here!
Our Power & Spark “Frame It Up!” Challenge is rolling along (heads up that the link-up glitch has been fixed and everyone can upload)! Be sure to take a few moments to visit Irene Rhodes' blog to see her beautiful Hellebores card, framed so elegantly and colored up like a dream.
This can be a challenge for many of us, but when we are able to dig in to the process — really fall in love with the steps it takes to “do the thing” without putting as much emphasis on the outcome — it can become a great source of joy. We only get the time we get. Each hour, each moment. Be present in that time and allow yourself to fall in love with each step. Even if your finished product isn't all you’d hoped for, you are still getting practice, gaining experience, AND you are putting a positive spin on life’s small moments.
Let’s go see what the Bloomies have in store for us today!! I know there are some super cool cards to see....
