This project was inspired by the Green Pepper Press Street Team Crusade #27 - Shape Up! Nope - not a New Year's Resolution that involves sore abs! Just a good ponder about a shape - your choice. Michelle challenges you to think positive, negative, big, small - just explore.
So, since a close one ribbed me about my iGoogle homepage today, which contains everything under the sun, and also the phases of the moon, I thought I'd explore a circle.
And in my crazy world here, I realized my reanimations are circles too - what goes around comes around, or however that goes. Get it? A ROUND? Tee hee..
So I decided to revive some fine art. This is truly art for the masses - no checkbook needed. It's from a magazine called Inside Santa Fe, which I love, because it has teeny pictures of all the current art in the galleries.
Your girl here loves tiny art. It's perfect for cards.
So what I did, was begin with a shadow of my circle. I did that by punching a circle out of a transparency.
Now when you do this, you MUST layer the transparency on cardstock. Most punches won't punch through the plastic without the cardstock underneath. I'm sure a physics professor somewhere knows why.
After you've punched the transparent shadow, attach it to your card with a dimensional. So even the shadow has a shadow. :)Then stick another dimensional on top and attach your teeny art. Mount that to a simple white card base and your shape becomes the focal point of the card. To add another layer of shapeliness, I chose pictures that featured circles where I could - the apple, the little moons and suns.
What a graceful shape. Click the picture to see the art a little closer. Each one of these is on a card now - lots of Thank Yous waiting to be sent. Maybe you're getting one. ;)
