IC318 ~ Close 2 My Art {01-07-12}
5 Attachment(s)
Hi Everyone!

Happy to be your guest host this weekend for the IC on behalf of Stephanie!

The web store for the Inspiration Challenge this week is "Close 2 My Art". This web store features work created by "Michele". This artist is incredibly talented, with a very playful flare! "Often, if something seems too perfect, I will skew it towards the unrealistic to capture the essence of a whim. Although the pieces I design are practical, my hope is that my art will never become so serious that I betray the uniqueness that inspires me."

Use keyword IC318 (no spaces or extra characters) and be sure you have commas between your key words.

If you don't have time to spend browsing the website, attached are a few samples from the store that you are welcome to use as your inspiration!

My Sample: Happiness Is

:arrow: Quick Link to Close 2 My Art webstore
:arrow: Quick Link to IC318 Gallery

How to Play ~ View the attached sample images and/or browse the suggested website. Get your inspiration from the the individual items, patterns, theme or color pallets. Just enjoy wherever your inspired and creative journey takes you! Make the inspiration piece your own! Don't worry ~ no card is 'wrong'! There is no time limit on this challenge and there are no rules. Explore and enjoy ~ be *inspired* to create, have fun, and share your artwork!!

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). Also, remember to link to your SCS gallery on this thread. Thank you for joining me on this inspiration journey.

IC318 Birdhouse
What a fantastic gallery! I was inspired by Cathouse and came up with Birdhouse- kept the wonderful stripes and polka dots, and have instead an embossed toucan, perching on a branch. Have a great Saturday!

Had my inspiration all picked out and saved to my computer desktop yesterday, but didn't get a chance to execute until today, so I incorporated it into my Whoo Loves Pam? card for the Featured Stamper challenge today, too!
