Ivy’s Winged JourneymanPosted: September 13, 2013
Happy Friday to all of you! I’m ready for the weekend. I did my usual Friday afternoon housecleaning this morning, so I am all ready to create for the entire afternoon! I’m going to need to stay indoors, as allergies are absolutely killing me, which is terrible because the weather is beautiful! But enough about me. Here’s a project I created for UmWowStudio, and I really, really love it.
The cicada is so beautiful and unique, and the flower stem can be used in so many ways. I’ve already used it on 3 layouts, and you know, it’s not really obvious that it’s the same chip on each one!
The new UmWowStudio mask of the cicada is also so amazeballs. It complemented the chip piece so well…..and created a gorgeous ethereal look when I inked the wings in a gradient of color.
I also used the chevron confetti, and it added just the right touch of shape…and pointed to other elements on the page.
The beautiful flair with flowers from the In The Night collection, inspired my painting of the flowers, to coordinate. 🙂
All in all, this is one of my recent favorite layouts. I love the magic of the color, texture, and design that happened on the page.
Well, happy weekend friends. I hope you have a lovely day….despite its scary number. ❤
