April 2016 Blog Hop Challenge

By April 15, 2016General



The April Blog Hop is not taking place until April 25th, but we thought we would share the challenge as well as the inspiration photo here to give you a head start.

A day dedicated to seeking inspiration through projects utilizing Papertrey Ink products.   This event allows all of our customers who enjoy sharing inspiration & artwork with their peers do so through their personal blogs.


The actual Blog Hop will take place on April 25th, beginning @ 10 am EST.

artwork from the New York Times featured artist Chad Hagen <—–check out his AMAZING flickr account!

At first glance it may seem like this beautiful artwork would inspire a geometric project of sorts. Dig deeper! Look at the way the different intensities of the colors look when layered together. Experiment with layering stencils, stamps or even vellum die-cuts in a similar way. Get inspired by the unique color scheme and the earthiness of it. Use the design as a jumping point for your layout and create your own sketch from it. Enjoy your process and explore outside your comfort zone!
