Oh My! Three posts in one day!! I am seriously behind!!
This week for the One Layer Wednesday challenge, Susan at Simplicity has challenged us to make a card that says peace to me....I guess that could be anything, but I've chosen to use the word peace.
As some of you know (those that follow my blog), I've been doing a bit of Zentangle Inspired Art. I recently drew these "balls" and filled them with tangles. Before drawing the balls, I traced the word Peace across the front of the card in pencil, then added the balls behind the letters. I didn't want to send out this card (now why is that?), so my son suggested that I scan the card and then print copies of it. What a wonderful idea that turned out to be. I was afraid to add color to the original sketch, but with the copies I could color all I wanted too!
The other cool thing is, I was able to make the few extra Christmas cards I need to finish for this year.
This second card doesn't say "Peace", but when I was drawing it, I felt peaceful. This new hobby really helps me to relax and be at peace. I haven't copied this card, but it might make a good birthday card...or who know...with a touch red on the flowers, it might make a good Christmas card.
Here's all the different variations of the card after I printed it out on the card stock (I was able to get two cards with each 8.5x11 sheet of card stock). Some I added a glittery pen stripe too, others I added glitter on the word Peace, and some I just colored the ribbon. Overall, I'm pleased with the way these turned out. Some of them, not so much, but I learned each time I colored another card. If you'd like to see them bigger, just click on each card. You'll see that I even cut the image out and popped it on one card, and on another card, I added a popped up blue sparkly "Peace". I know that not strictly one layer, but most of them are definitely one layer.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I truly appreciate your comments! Until next time....
Have a wonderful week!!
