Our Creative Corner Guest Designer

It's my pleasure to be the Guest Designer over at Our Creative Corner this month.  OCC was the first design team I was ever on (back in 2011) and I love stopping by and seeing their challenges each month.  There are no limits on submissions/styles so you'll find quite a range of art including all sorts of substrates and mediums.

Marjie Kemper Art Journal with DecoArt Media Misters

This month OCC is using a Mood Board (below) for inspiration. It's pretty clear that the pinks and yellows called me, as well as the window design.  Hop on over to Our Creative Corner the full reveal with lots of step-out photos.

Our Creative Corner Challenge - July 2015 Moodboard I hope you'll join the challenge as well. It'll be so interesting to see all the different creations based on this beautiful Mood Board.

Thanks for the visit!  If we're not already connected, please sign up for my newsletter or find me on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, YouTube, or Twitter.

    Beautiful use of the hot sizzling colours. I can feel the heat radiating. Much more heat than I am feeling from our grey, wet weather!

    Oh what a gorgeous page Marjie, I love the colours you chose from the mood board. The arched windows create the most wonderful backdrop too and the leaves and words really pop beautifully – this is wonderful! Anne xx

    Seriously Marjie – this is one of my all time favorite art journal pages of yours…. and I love them all!!! This one is just near perfect in every way (to me!) Why? Well, I am all about those colors… I love anything on the orange side! But mostly, it’s just the way you put it all together. My fav stencil is one similar to your black leaves – so that draws me in immediately. The bricks are placed just exactly right around the windows… and the black lines just give another whole layered look. Well, I’m rambling but… this one needs to be redone on canvas and hung on a wall. It’s WONDERFUL. You hit the Mexico theme and mood board square in the face with your creativity. So glad you are one of the guest designers this month… this is wonderful. j.

    Lovely page, Marjie! The black falling leaves looks stunning against that vibrant background! Happy Weekend!

    I can see where you were used the window photo to start your page but you definitely created your own window scene here. Love the colors and the subtle windows and stonework wall in the background. Your use of black is really dynamic, and Dream Big is a very uplifting message. Love it!
