I was really pleased to see this weeks challenge from Scrap the Art as I needed to make a card for some neighbours who are moving this week. They have lived just along the road for 14 years and my husband Steve particularly will miss them as he and Dean share an interest in scooters and spend hours out in the garage working on them (actually they are usually just gassing!). Gives me time to craft uninterrupted though! ;0)
The stimulus for the challenge this time is a picture by M.C. Esher called Hand with Reflecting Sphere from around 1935. My sister Jenni has made a card with a beautiful flowery take on it over here.
As soon as I saw it I thought of looking into a crystal ball to see the future, which connected with the idea of moving house. I also wanted a chance to use a Zentangle on a card and this really graphic picture with all the different reflections seemed like the ideal opportunity. If you are not sure what a Zentangle is have a look at this blog, it is really relaxing and fun to do. Basically it is just doodling, something anyone can do but I love the effects you can create.
