Great Minds....




I have spent this whole week not thinking about school. Next week I am off and will spend the week studying for my psych test, so I will be keeping a low profile. I spent last Sunday and Monday getting all my blogging obligations in order. 

This week at Just Us Girls, Sharyn has a technique challenge- Weathered wood background.




I have to say, I watched the video and remembered a photo I saw on Pinterest and thought yeah, that's it. I am going for a blue background. When I went to put my card in the blog, I noticed 2 of my fellow designers had the same "great idea"!!




This was the original card. I really like it  but it was just to similar to others.


Well, I needed to go back and rethink this whole thing. I made another background with grey tones and die cut circles and played with them until I was happy with the composition. And another guy card was created.  Even Miss Pinkie liked this one. She is a sucker for neutral tones.

Try this fun and easy technique and show us what you created at Just Us Girls this week.

Loving that blue wood with the pretty flowers. And those woodgrain circles are fantastic with such a fun design.
