Welcome back to another oh so CAS Friday with another CAS-ual Fridays challenge and what an interesting challenge we have for you this week!
We want to see your CAS projects inspired by your very own blog header! Yup, your blog header.
Our sponsor this week is the wonderful A Muse Studio and what a great prize they're giving away this week! Head on over to the CAS-ual Fridays blog to get all the deets on that :)
I recently updated my blog header showcasing a pair of my favorite earrings I made and immediately thought oh no! why did I do that? How am I supposed to make a card based on THAT??!! After much contemplation a took a step back and realized I was approaching it all the wrong way. So I simplified my thought process and brought it down to main colors and simple shapes. Here is what I came up with...
I looked at the three main colors of my header, gray, white and purple and translated that into my fave paint analogy. I made the gray the largest amount of color so it's the gallon, the white I made the second most color, therefore the quart and the purple represented the smallest amount which is the pint. If you ever get stuck with color combos, a trio in the gallon, quart,and pint ratio work really well. Next I looked at any shapes I could incorporate and the earrings I felt would be best represented by circles which allowed me to add a little purple bling :)
Soooo, long story short, if you find your self stumped, look at your blog header and bring it down to a trio of colors and simple shapes :)
I can't wait to go through the gallery and see how everyone draws inspiration from their blog headers, it's going to be a fun challenge!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
