Firstly, I want to send my warmest congratulations to Leah (owner and illustrator of Heart Song Designs) and her family! After a long and difficult battle with bureaucracy, Leah is finally on her way to collect their much loved son, Makaio! I'm sooooo happy for you, and can't wait to see the beautiful photos of your family finally together!
In the meantime, I'm back again with another Heart Song Inspiration Challenge!! I'm really in the swing of this now and am absolutely LOVING being part of the fabulous Heart Song Design Team. They are an awesome group of ladies!
For this week, HSIC#10, we'd love you to make a card using the theme "Back to School and/or Use Circles."
Well this was tricky for me as I don't have kids, so don't have anything remotely 'back to school-ish' in my stash! Never fear - the internet is here!! ;) I looked up a cute little scrapbooking digi kit and printed off a few papers to get me started.
Leah's Heart Song Designs "Apple" was the perfect focal image, which I decided to play around with and paper-piece just for fun! I hadn't ever tried this with digital images before, and it was easier than I thought - Just print your image onto the patterned papers and cut out your pieces. And if you're clever there isn't too much waste either!
So here is how it turned out...
The apple and the sentiment are both raised on mounting foam to give added dimension. Here's a different angle so you can see...
And of course just to be clever I used Circles to frame my image - the other challenge too!
Hope you have loads of fun with this challenge - you can find more inspiration from the rest of the DT on the Heart Song Inspirations Blog!
For this card, I used Sweet Sketch Wednesday #113
