I know what my stamping table looks like when I am designing a project. After a while it is so full of stuff as I try one thing after another, my work space has dwindled to about 6 inches square! If I am good about it, I will stop and clear off the things I am finished with so I can keep working. Know what I mean?
When six people are designing, that makes at least six times the mess! Here is a photo of the table during design class on Saturday:
It was wild! I asked each person to choose a stamp, either one they brought from home, or one from my collection. Then they each chose a card sketch and a color challenge. Everyone was working on their own design, utilizing the design elements we have been learning about: Focal point, texture and dimension, color combinations, working with sketches, etc. They each started with the image and built their card around it. I was busy moving around the table helping each of them when they needed it.
Here are the cards they came up with:
I think they all did a great job, don't you? Which is your favorite?
