The second sneak peek that I want to show you is a collection called Heidi, which was created for Creative Imaginations. This collection was inspired by Scandinavian folk art with a modern retro twist. I love how in Scandinavian design the pictorial images in a design become a visually interesting pattern of their own--without necessarily knowing the subject matter from a distance. I tried to create a repeated pattern with individual images that made a visually interesting design when placed at various angles. The birds in this piece may not be recognizable as birds at first glance. They create an X pattern that is beautiful on its own. At closer view, you can see that the pattern is made up of distinct image parts...the birds, the flowers, the leaves the hearts. All together they make for a fun design up close or far away. I also used this technique in creating my stripe pattern. I arranged the flowers in rows to create a visual stripe. When close up, you can see more of the individual flowers that make up the design.
This collection has a sunny disposition to match any of your Spring layouts you may be doing this season. Enjoy the sunny palette with your Easter photos, and spring flower pictures. You won't want to miss the gorgeous layout created by Tanisha Long over on the Creative Imaginations blog.
