Inspired by Joom

This week's inspiration challenge used images from the San Francisco artist Joom. There were lots of colorful pillows and wall art to choose from. I settled on this framed piece. The trailing swirls behind the bird are what caught my eye. Plus, I love anything that uses bright colors.




I started with the chipboard bird, then added the sentiment from SU's Stem Sayings set. Some bits of bling were the finishing touch.

Stamps: Stem Sayings (SU)
Paper: Soft Sky, Whisper White
Ink: Real Red
Accessories: chipboard (American Crafts), rhinestones (The Paper Studio, Michael's, Me & My Big Ideas)
