OCC: Photo Challenge

Hi Friends!

Happy Saturday to you. Its been a busy week but I couldn't be more happy about the impending summer. Me and my son are in full birthday party planning mode for his 5th birthday party and its pretty fun. We're going to break out a bubble theme which I think (and hope) will be just as fun for the adults as it is for the kids.

This week, we're celebrating color with a fun inspirational photo from Meihsia Liu. With this challenge, we're working orange with touches of blue, white and brown.

I must be on a roll with using up scraps. This time I ended up digging into my larger size scraps and I'm just in love with the random collage-y feel of it. I think I'd like to create a few card sets in some different colors with this sketch.

So join us this week by using the photo as inspiration. And while you're getting some ideas together, see what the other designers on the Our Creative Corner team have put together.
