Well, later that evening, Hope was painting at her table and I was scrapbooking. She said "Mom, look at my painting" and in an instant I had a great idea. One of the publication categories was "A Spectrum of Color", so her rainbow spectrum she had painted was the perfect inspiration.
After I put her to bed, I came back down and scanned in her painting. I would provide a picture of the scan, but due to technical difficulties (meaning my husband lost all of the files that were stored on the desktop) I am unable to download it to my blog at the moment.
I printed off the picture and started coming up with card ideas. It was so exciting. The next night Hope asked me why I had a copy of her picture on my scrapbook desk. I told her I was going to make cards with it and she was so excited to know that I loved her painting that much.
Luckily, my cards were in a different folder, so I am going to share a few of them now.
The first card shows only a small area of the painting, but this was my favorite card I created. Very clean and simple, which is typically my style.
The second card i wanted it to look like a window and you were looking out and seeing these beautiful spectrum of colors like a sunset or rainbow.
I have a few others I will keep sharing, so check back. I am entering these into Amber's Reject Blog Hop. Hope you enjoyed my rejects today. I know I had fun creating them and hopefully it will inspire you to look at your children's art work in a whole new light!
