Make Art

Hello everyone!!! Jamie here with my first inaugural post here at Chic Tags. I am so excited to be here and get to know everyone. And one way I like to share excitement and celebrate is by making my art. My art is telling my story by way of photo+words+pretty pretty paper embellies. And that's just what I did today.

I decided for my first project for Chic Tags I would celebrate being part of the new team members here for this next term. So I grabbed our photo from the introductory post back in January, edited it a little bit, and made a layout highlighting my being part of this team.

This layout was inspired in part by watching the 2014 Olympics and taking notice of all the triangles that are used at the events as part of the theme. Have you noticed them? So I took the Good Tidings Peppermint paper, used the grey stripe side, and punched a bunch of triangles and then arranged them to my liking.

I am also inspired right now by brush script. So I made my own little brush script digital cut, sprayed it with Heidi Swapp Turquoise Color Shine, and then layered it over the 'art' flashcard from the School House Science Lab paper. This is just adding emphasis to my love of making art in this fashion. I like how the title did not come out perfect, but that is part of what we should embrace when we are making art, imperfection.

And lastly, I know we are on the other side of Valentines Day, but love and hearts have been a point of inspiration this month too. I tend to like to celebrate all month. And this big news is dear to my heart. I love already being on this team, and look forward to all I am going to learn and be inspired by with the rest of the team members. With this in mind, I cut a heart out of the Happy Place Fuzzy Sweater paper and sort of floated it over the triangles.

Thank you so much for letting me share with you today. I hope this inspires you to share your love and celebration right now by way of a layout or paper project.
