A Second Look

A fence. Hmm. If you knew where the inspiration came from, you might see something else. Don't get me wrong. The moment I welded the design together, I saw the "H's" and the fence too. My kids did as well. In fact, they took it one step further when I turned it on its end and said "It's a ladder." LOL!

Yet, the inspiration for the file came from a wall sculpture. It was a combination of oxidized copper wedges of various sizes with silver bars between them. The moment I saw it, I thought that it would look so cool on a masculine card as a sort of mat for a sentiment or as a creative mat for a picture or journaling on a scrapbook layout.

Here, take another look:

Thank you all, so much for your wonderful ideas and comments! I really do appreciate them. Please, stop by tomorrow for the random drawing. Until then, Happy Creative Time!

Looks great Ileana. Reminds me of the game Jenga. Stacked various shapes. Remember that game?

Oh! Now I understand. It does look great as the mat for the guy card. But I think your commenting folks had some creative ideas, too.

Ohh, I like it as a background for a masculine card :) What a nifty idea. I am surprised I didn't think of copper wedges but then again I try not think about school and work when I am crafting :D
