I've been a little fixated on rainbows for a couple of months, now, as you can see on my Pinterest board. I loved how the papers in the Summer Smooches package fed right into my fixation! I take the swaps I receive to work and show them to my coworkers. I include the one I've made but don't identify it (unless they ask) - it's fun to see if they guess which one is mine. Last week one of them asked what this style would be called. She knew it wasn't vintage, or whimsical, or one of those descriptions, but couldn't think of what described this - I suggested bold graphic.
Another fixation I admit to is Christmas. Although I did better last year at early card-making, I'm starting to feel the pull again now, and found another challenge blog to stimulate my imagination in Nicole Derendorf's Festive Friday. This week she's offered a sketch, and I did this with it:
