A MUSEing Train of Happy Thoughts...

When I first saw Therese's fab MUSE card this week, I was immediately drawn to the negative die cut and yellow background, which made me think of the sun, which reminded me of some free downloadable wall art I had seen on-line, which inspired me to create this...


As the focus of my wall art is negative die cuts, I couldn't resist playing along with the Moxie Fab World Card Creations Week - Emphasise the Negative Challenge, Just Us Girls Negative Die Cut Challenge, and as this verse is taken from a song I thought it was perfect for playing along at City Crafter Challenge Inspired by a Song too.

Wall Art created using paper from October Afternoon, My Favorite Things die-cut clouds and alpha, Marvy scalloped circle punch was used as the basic outline for the sun then hand cut the rays, Cuttlebug swirl embossing folder, Basic Grey alphas and LOTS of pop dots!

Thank you so much for stopping by, I really appreciate your visit :)

  17. This is just awe-inspiring clever! My favorite parts are the swirly clouds (both positive AND negative) and the fact you spelled GREY the RIGHT WAY.
