This week I decided to try making a card for the Etsy Inpired Challenge #30. I received an invitation from Heather @ http://heathersheavinlystampations.blogspot.com/ to participate and when I had a chance to look at the work from the Esty Artist chosen for the inspiration, I just had to try! Lauren Alexander creates some of the happiest, whimsical water~colored prints I've ever seen. You can take a look for yourself to see what I mean here:
LAUREN ALEXANDER ART:
I've always loved water~color paintings and if I knew the first thing about painting, this is the kind of art I'd love to create! Hmm... I wonder if a painting class is in my future?! :) Anyways, the piece I chose for my inspiration from Lauren Alexander is titled "The Velvet Voice". All of her work is exceptionally beautiful, but these colors just brought out the "Happy" in me this time.
I wish the picture was a little better/brighter. I had to replace a light bulb for my mini photo~studio and cannot seem to find the right bulb.
