Arrow IC124 ~ Freshcut {04-19-08}

Inspiration Challenge 124 ~ Freshcut

I had a wonderful time at the Inspired Artist Workshops. I truly was inspired by so many things and experiences, that I decided to use one of them for this week’s inspiration challenge.

Heather Bailey attended the event, and we used her Freshcut fabrics for our Textile Anthology project by Christina Lazar-Schuler. I've attached several photos of the fabrics, but you can click on through to see close-ups of each one. I used a variation of the quilt pattern on my card.

Make sure you use the keyword: IC124 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card.

My sample ~ Lap Quilted Joy

IC124 Gallery

How to Play ~ View the attached images. You may be inspired to recreate the piece ~ but that isn't necessary ... get your inspiration from the colors, layout, style or 'theme'. Just enjoy wherever your inspired creative journey takes you. Make the inspiration piece your own. Don't worry ~ no card is 'wrong' and there is no time limit for uploading your card for the challenge. There are no rules, so let your creative juices run wild ~ be *inspired* and go get stamping!

Don't forget about No Upload Sunday - Let's give the gallery moderators a day off and not upload on Sunday (unless, of course, you are a Fan Club member - yet another reason to spend a little money on your favorite site). Thank you for joining me on this inspiration journey.
