Jessi Fogan was an active participant in a variety of challenges, and a beloved design team member of several.
This week at Shopping Our Stash, we are paying tribute to this lovely soul the best way we crafters can: by using her art as inspiration for us. In this way, she lives on.
I've made a card inspired by two of her creations.
This is my card:
Okay, so, Jessi was so inspiring that as I went sadly through her posts, my heart lifted and my inspiration just began to swell from her creativity. Initially, I thought I'd kind of CASE THIS one:
... but as I began to create my version, I felt a bright version was more fitting for the fun-loving Jessi. So, I drew inspiration from the ginkgo leaf , the splatters, and the layout but went in search for a way to lighten it and brighten it. I found THIS one:
I just love the inky goodness here! I had already committed to the layout of the ginkgo card, but now I felt more direction for the brighter version. I noticed the triple rhinestones on each, but since my paper was so warped after the heat embossing (rrrr...) I decided to make it a postcard... so rhinestones were ditched for Stickles. Perfect, because I notice Jessi was not shy with the glitter!
