It is with a sense of privilege & delight that I am making this post for it is my first as a member of the Whiff of Joy Challenge Blog Design Team.
Whiff of Joy Challenge #84 has the theme of "Fuzz". This involves incorporating anything "fuzzy" (felt, Flower Soft, flock etc.......) into a project made using a Whiff of Joy image.
I covered the flowers in the basket Willow is carrying & the eggs of the Easter Basket accessory stamp (from the same Spring 2009 Stamp Kit) with Flower Soft & was really thrilled with the dimensional tactile effect this created. I also used an assortment of felt flowers to further embellish the project. Prior to this assignment I'd not really considered how versatile Flower Soft is, nor how sophisticated an effect could be achieved using the texture of felt. I had always associated the medium of felt with themes related to children so this project proved quite a revelation for me.
For further examples of how to interpret this "Fuzzy" theme have a look at what the rest of the Design Team have created.
