Welcome to Inspirational Challenge #80 where, for the next two weeks, we're inviting you to draw inspiration - colours, shapes, eggs, or maybe something entirely different (*ahem*...as I did *grin*) from this photo:
Honestly, this was one heckuva (can I say that work in blog-land? Guess I just did!) challenging photo for me to interpret! Very! No eggs means heading off in an EN-TIRE-LY different direction...an attempt at 'collage'. Why that? Because that's what I see in this photo: a lovely and fetchingly arranged collection of eggs, yes! I also saw colours, splotches, splatters, different shapes/sizes, so...I headed off (as is my tendency), did my thing and here's the result...
The colours: rather obvious (the orange is drawn from the background layer of the container, which looks orange on my screen). The black butterfly was my nod to the egg on the bottom right (mottled, sort of amber), while the lighter one links to the one in the first section of the second row (yes...I was working with the details); the flowers were....um, just because. The frame (brown) and kraft base speak to the container. Hmmm...maybe this isn't quite a 'collage', so much as an 'arrangement of images.' I need to work on adding funky backgrounds to truly attain collage-status. More practice...but it's a start!
Whatever this 'style' is, I hope you see snippets of connection.
Hope that I've offered a bit of inspiration to encourage you to look closely at the photo's details and create a card/project to share in the Ink gallery. You may be the one we choose as a future Guest Designer!
I'm sharing my card at: STAMPlorations Bi-Weekly Sketch Challenge #31. My layout may be a bit of stretch, but I tried for 'balanced' images above and below my sentiment frame so...fingers crossed! If I'm too 'out there,' I understand!
