Gossip Column

Sunday, June 21, 2015

Hello there!
Today I am playing along with the fabulous Gossip Column with Taheerah Atchia over at Winnie & Walter! 

A little confession...
Ever since I found this lovely lady in the blog land a few months ago, I am a HUGE fan of her! Her work is just fabulous, I don't know how else to describe it... My style has "evolved" (as my friend Nina said) the past few months because of my discovery of all these different manufactures other than Stampin' Up!, and I have seen her work everywhere! And she certainly has had a huge impact on my new style. 

This challenge is something like that. Taheerah is a big fan of Jocelyn and she wants you to get inspirations from her work. I have never noticed Jocelyn's name before, so I went over to her blog to study her projects...oh my... she makes beautiful little creations! I now am a fan of hers as well...LOL 

Anyway, enough chatting and let's get to my "Jocelyn" card ;-)

As Taheerah explained, Jocelyn's cards have a lot of white that are embossed. So that was the first thing I wanted to do. 

What I noticed and loved about Jocelyn's work was, she has a lot of layers, layers of scraps kind of layers! And she secures them by sewing them! I have always loved stitches on cards, I was just too lazy to get my sewing machine out...lol But now I have a bigger desk (FINALLY!!) and a little more organized, my sewing machine is more easily accessible! So be prepared to see some stitches on my cards ;-)
On this card, I used the zig zag stitches to repeat the chevron stripes. 

This card was really, really, REALLY fun to make! 
I love the DSP I picked, and from there, everything just came to me:-) 
I truly enjoy playing all sorts of challenges, it does nothing but inspires me to try something different. I got hooked to watercolor because I played a watercolor challenge at Newton's, I now am in love with using my sewing machine because of this challenge. I feel like I was sheltered, but am now finally growing up...LOL
