Operation Write Home & design bootcamp. This week, to start off bootcamp, is some basic color theory. I've picked up a lot of what was covered this week over the years of quilting and picking fabrics, and also applied that to picking papers that coordinate. A color wheel is always sitting out on the desk for reference... Thomas will tell you, I don't do random or things that don't match as close as I can get them. ;)
The homework for the week was to pick one of the basic color harmonies & create a card. I chose monochromatic for my card. I started with the piece of striped patterned paper that was on the desk. I played with several different cards before this one.... The sketch is this weeks OWH sketch. Patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye. I pieced the windows and door. Sentiment & house is from an OWH Hero Arts set. Background paper is stamped with sentiment and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Black brads are Making Memories.

My goal for 2013 is to continue to purge and "shop" from the stash. Now that the mojo has returned, I plan to blog at least weekly, if not a little more often, for as long as the mojo sticks around. Hopefully life won't get in the way to much.
