I Took the Challenge . . . .

. . .  have you?  The SOQS announced a Call for Fabric Postcard Entries for the Wish Upon A Card project.  The” skies the limit” in regards to the design of the 4″ x 6″ card, using any type of fabric BUT there is also an optional Challenge – these cards must incorporate the  Michael Miller Challenge Fabric  (and SOQS will provide the fabric swatch).  Yes, I’m taking the Challenge.  As a SOQS employee working directly on the project, I do NOT qualify for any of the cash prizes – I just enjoy trying  something new.  For an entry to be juried for the Silent Auction or the Michael Miller Challenge, it must be received by April 15th.  Please note all entries are donated to SOQS as a fundraiser for Wendy’s Wish.

Inspiration from Forrest

Inspiration from Forrest

The inspiration I’m using for my card comes from the work of American artist William H. Johnson referred to as “Flowers”  and artwork from my son, Forrest, when he was in second grade  – yikes, that’s 12 years ago! I was first introduced to Johnson’s work via a U.S. postage stamp released in 2012.  Another challenge –  I plan to add textural stitches demonstrated in Sue Spargo’s book – Creative Stitching.  Many of the stitches are new to me but I’m looking forward to learning as I travel this path.

Next month, I’ll share the finished card along with the experiences I encountered along way.   Happy trails on your creative journey.
