I felt it was time that I needed to step out of my comfort zone! In order to do that I had to find some cards that were difficult for me to create. I have always loved the clean and simple style that Kristina Werner and Dawn McVey create. However, I really needed to study their cards, and examine what they were doing to make a card uniquely their style. So I began to ask myself what were their color choices and how did they used them in their cards. Next, what elements did they use to create their personal signature style? Both Dawn and Kristina like to use rounded corners, something I rarely use, plus they do not put many full layers on their cards, in fact heir cards are often asymmetrical. Then there are the sentiments that kind of sit out there all by themselves just to give their cards punch. I think for my first try, I did okay on the card above in replicating their style. I even took out my McCoy vase to capture Dawn's love of this beautiful pottery when I photographed the card. After all, it is all about the subtle details, often subconscious but which are the signatures that create a persons own and special style.

OKAY then I want you guys to step out of your comfort zone and capture my style.....there is an element that I use quite often to give my cards punch, you have even commented on it. So, take a good look at my cards to see the repeating style that I enjoy using time and again. Then go outside the comfort level of your own style, and create a card that resembles what I do.
