**Inspired by CupCards (to go) July kit. I'm starting to get into the groove of cardmaking and I especially love that we've been giving them away more to friends and family. I thought I'd share another quick peek before kits reveal tomorrow, July 1, 2010 at 6:00pm (pst).Ali Edwards' Stories of Summer series - I'm loving all of the different traditions that people have and the mediums that they are using to capture their summer. The summer journals I made for my girls were featured in this post.
***Inspired by Molly Irwin's The Elements of Summer minibook. The cool watercolors, graphic feel and three elements she is focusing on are so amazing. I didn't intend to make a summer book but between Molly's mini and all of the inspiration on Ali's blog, I think I will be taking the plunge. Now is a better time more than any. Don't you think?
***Inspired by film photos again. I've been playing around with this lovely beauty, which belongs to my father-in-law. I'm still learning how to use it and will hopefully get a few photos that I love out of it.
One of my favorite blogs that I love to visit is Rachel Saldana's also known as Buttons Magee. She takes amazing photos and writes very lovely. Oh...how I long to take film photos like her.
***Inspired by my good friend Wendy Sanchez who is breaking into the mixed media art scene. Wendy's art is currently on display at the Marco Fuoco Gallery in downtown Sacramento through the first week of July. It's so very cool!
So that's that. Inspiration abound! Take time to relax as we move into another weekend. And if you're celebrating Independence Day, stay cool and safe!
