Artist Appreciation Blog Hop


Did you know that August is Artist Appreciation month? Did you know that I actually went to art school? It's true! I completed a diploma in graphic design back in 2008, and have been subtly putting it to use ever since. One of my favourite artists I learned about taking art history was Piet Mondrian. His later works with primary colors and geometric shapes always intrigued me.

So for today's project, I thought I would recreate his style in a card! These works have been recreated countless times, but I'd never tackled them so here's my take...


Ya, I cheated a little and added text and circles, but I can't say no to some bling! Check out everyone else's projects, and leave them some comments as well!

Happy Janmashtami!

Among my family we celebrate A LOT of different holidays. Today happens to be one of the days where my Hindu family celebrates the birth of Krishna. I love learning about different holidays and celebrations for my #stampingdiversity projects, and Wikipedia has been a great source for researching them. You can find out more about this holiday here: Krishna Janmashtami

July 2020 Paper Pumpkin - Summer Nights

Last month's Paper Pumpkin kit was called "Summer Nights" and it even came with an add on kit which made it so easy to stretch the kit and make extra cards with it. I saw the original idea from Rachel Tessman, and just kept stamping! Hope this inspires you to create as well!
