It's been so long since I've been able to have fun with everyone at The Play Date Cafe. Challenge #162 is inspired by the picture below - the challenge was to create something using the following colours:
As I didn't get to 'play' with this challenge until after Christmas, thoughts of the New Year were my inspiration and starting point. The cute 'star of the show' is from Stampington and the words are a combination of Making Memories and Hero Arts. I stitched and beaded some extra stars into the background and wanted to approach this piece in a playful way... playful may be my 'word' for 2013, especially with my creative work. I can tend towards being too serious and I can find myself losing the sense of fun during the creative process. So next year I'm going to aim to be more playful in the way I approach not just my art, but life in general.
This piece is created on a seed packet, so there's a pocket to hide dreams/goals/secrets for the year too. Actually, I already have a big secret that I'm keeping and will be able to share it with you very soon!
Here's to a very Happy, HAPPY New Year to You! Yes, I'm just a little early - makes a nice change, eh!
