Mexico Moods - Summer Challenge at Our Creative Corner
Servus and welcome to the second package of inspiration for our special "Mexico Moods" summer challenge over at Our Creative Corner!
And along with a fabulous mood board that is meant to be your inspirational source and guideline for your projects come some more specials like our two fantastic prize sponsors, Stampington&Co and Tando Creative and two wonderful guest designers chosen by the OCC team.
Stampington are also generously offering a $2 voucher to everyone who enters our challenge!
Our Top3 will be a team vote this time instead of having a challenge host who chooses them.
And this is the wonderful mood board that I fell in love with at first sight:
Grab any inspiration you like from these images - colours, shapes, themes, the whole bundle...
As I loved every single image of the mood board I decided to go for the colours mainly and so I took out my acrylic paints, a palette knife and some coloured canvas tags and started creating a happy mess - trying to mainly capture the vibrancy and joyful mood of the colour combos instead of having a finished project in mind when I started out.
And this is the series of five vibrant tags I came up with:
I simply scraped on various paints using a palette knife and saw to it that the tones formed the same colour combos which I so loved and adored with the mood board images. The already coloured background of the tags was very helpful as I didn't have to see that I covered up the whole area.
I added some scribbling with a white Sharpie, a bit of adhesive fabric ribbon and washi tape and some stamping to add more detail to them. The finishing touch was done with my label maker.
I had a great time messing with vibrant paints, scribbling, stamping and doodling.... hope you will have a great time when doing your "Mexico Moods" projects too! Can't wait to see them over at our Summer Challenge!
Hugs and happy crafting,
