ICS #33

I've been feeling much more creative now that I've settled into school. My schedule this week hasn't quite normalized yet but I'm back in school mode at least. So when I got the time to be creative (i.e. decided some of my readings can wait until tomorrow) I went right to ICS to find some inspiration.

This summer my boyfriend and I spent quite a bit of time hiking and taking wildlife, specifically bird pictures. I printed extras of some during Walgreens recent photo week but sometimes the bird was quite small in the picture. I think I need to zoom in for better scrapbook pictures. But I have these prints now that my boyfriend took and I find quite inspirational. So inspired by the Paper Crafts Mag blog's mention of photo cards I decided I would turn the photos into card embellishments much like a stamped image might be used. So for this week's sketch at ICS I used the picture of a common yellowthroat warbler and GCD Studios paper. The orginal picture is below. What I like best about this card is I can see it equally being a wall hanging, scrapbook page, or a card really its just how you look at it.

Speaking of design teams, the Digiments design team, myself included, have recieved the new September release and are busy making projects with the awesome new sentiments. Also Michelle has a fabulous surprise this month that I know will make many people even more eager to get their hands on this month's Digiments.
