No really, I am. I can hardly believe it myself! I was beyond flattered when Chupa from the CASE Study Challenge blog contacted me to ask if I would be the Muse for July. Heck ya! She didn't even need to ask.
So, here comes the hard part for me. Each week in July, Chupa will select a card from my previous work and post it for all to CASE...including myself. Who would have known that CASE-ing yourself would be so darn hard?! I'm one who bores easily, always trying something new. So once I've created a project, I rarely revisit it. I am trying to work on this, as I know this is how you create a signature style. But heck, there is just so much to try out there! So, when I saw Chupa's first pick, my heart sank. Not because I don't love the card, I do. It's probably my all time favorite. But man it took me FOREVER to color. Literally.
But, I put on my big girl panties and went for it. The original card was actually the card I envisioned while illustrating A Special Lady. For my CASE, I decided to keep the layout and reuse the idea of creating a scene. I went with the lighthouse image from Guiding Light.
I hope you can find some time to check out the CASE Study Challenger, play along, and check out the amazing Design Team's work.
