Today I have four posts coming your way!!! We'll be visiting 4 countries total. The hostess of this virtual adventure is Nichole Heady. And she has some fun challenges over at her blog. The challenge is to create a project (card) inspired by a specific country. Whether it be it's colors or unique design. The countries are: Japan, Mexico, India & Australia. We have till Tuesday, Oct. 7, 7 am. That's the deadline so if you haven't come up with anything yet you should really get crafty because they have some great goodies for the winners. Happy creating!!!
Challenge #1 Japan
For my first creation I was inspired by the colors. I love Japan and I dream of the day I can visit this fascinating country. My wish is to visit during their Spring. To enjoy the bounty of color hues the season brings. I had a foretaste of what it'd look like when I lived in British Columbia, Canada. Springs their are full of cherry blossoms, magnolias, dogwood and many other bold, bright flowering trees.
Here's what I came up with for this challenge. I was inspired by the 2nd upper image in the grid. The colors are great. I don't think I'd ever come up with these if it weren't for these images :)
I'll see you in a little bit with my take on challenge #2 Mexico :)
