Take an inspiration photo like the one at Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger:
Add Maile Belles' Pinterest inspiration photo of the striped coffee mug:
Challenge yourself to use a sketch. I chose #136 from day 1 of CPS anniversary challenge:
Then pull some memories from the dark recesses of the brain. Childhood in Michigan. Yummy chocolates boxed in coral/white striped boxes. (Thought Russell Stover, but can't find any pics. Was it Turtles???)
So. The fun part. I created the pink/white PP by using masking tape to mask lines and sponging my fave pink - Worn Lipstick Distress Ink. Stamped the brown PP with Versamagic chalk ink.
My "no way!!" moment happened when I grabbed the vintage dictionary scrap from my scrap basket. It's from a "K" page and when I turned it over, the word "Konditorei" was on it! "Konditorei" is German for patisserie and was what was on my mind after seeing this Tuesday Trigger for the first time! BTW, check out these lovelies from a patisserie in Rueil Malmaison, France...
I love the creative process. (And macaroons!)
And I love when things seem to happen for a reason. And this folks, was THE card that moved me to create a blog. There were enough reasons here. However, I am jumping in head first and a bit leery of the whole thing.
If, by chance, you've actually read to this point I would be extremely grateful for YOUR BEST TIP for a newcomer to Blogger.
Thanks for coming to visit. Hope to see you again.
