August 2022 IDSD Blog Hop

Welcome to the IDSD Blog Hop!

“Every time you dive, you hope you’ll see something new – some new species. Sometimes the ocean gives you a gift, sometimes it doesn’t” – James Cameron

Well today, there is definitely a gift! Seven gifts, in fact!

I have joined with six other independent designers for the IDSD (Independent Digital Scrapbooking Designers) Blog Hop. 

The Indie Designers team asked on Instagram for our friends to vote on colour palettes, and I’m delighted my colour palette ‘At the Ocean’ won the poll. I had been wanting for a while to work with a bold cobalt blue and I just love the contrast with warm oranges and reds and a soft coral pink.

I’ve created a whole ocean themed collection - I had so many ideas I’ve been adding to it up until the last minute!

There are soft watercolour patterns, bold vintage travel ads collaged to create pocket cards and, for the first time, I’ve scanned some of my gel printed artworks to create high quality digital papers that look just like the real thing.

I hope you enjoy following the blog hop to see each designer’s unique interpretation of our theme.
