Chic of the Week Challenge #457

WOW! Thank you to everyone who shared their Hand-drawn Elements in the Just Us Girls gallery this week. From fabulous 'illustrated' stamps, to those brave enough to truly embrace the art of 'hand-drawing, you've shared an array of delightful, wonderfully creative cards. Perhaps, one of these days, I'll muster up courage to do some 'doodling' of my own!

This week, the Chic of the Week goes to Sherri T.


Absolutely crushing over her cuddly hand-drawn bear...and the polka-dot bow tie is incredibly cute! Lucky person receiving this sweet celebration card in the mail.  Congratulations and thank you, Sherri, for sharing your talents with us!

Please contact me (Carol - cmayne at shaw.ca) for your blog badge. You'll also be in the running to be our November Guest Designer!

Thank you again to everyone who joined the challenge!

Inviting you to come back tomorrow to play along in the
 Colour challenge selected by our wonderful DT, Bobby!

Just Us Girls Challenge #457 ~TREND Week: Hand-Drawn Elements

Hello,

Carol here, welcoming you to Just Us Girls Challenge #457~Trend Week, where I'm inviting you to use HAND-DRAWN ELEMENTS on your cards/projects. Let me explain...


I drew inspiration from the awesome On Trend class taught by incredibly talented, Taheerah Atchia, where we explored a variety of trends - fashion, home decor - that have spilled into the crafting world and see no signs of disappearing any time soon. Hand-drawn elements was one, which she defines a whimsical trend often seen in the form of hand-drawn graphic design/illustrated elements and and calligraphy. Imperfection is embraced!!

Given that, what are we inviting you to do?  Here's a few ideas:
  • use your some of your 'outline' images, left 'as is' or with just a touch of colour; 
  • be bold and create your own  'hand-drawn' illustrations; 
  • showcase calligraphy - your own or that found in your stamp collection;
  • interpret in whatever fashion you see fit!
Bottom line: have fun and remember: embrace imperfection!  For more ideas, do a Pinterest Hand-Drawn Elements search. So many cool ideas/images to spark your creativity...
How did our talented Guest Designer, Julie, and the team interpret this theme? Take a wander and see...
