Oh la la…there’s just something about the Eiffel Tower that always looks so stunning. It totally makes me want to visit Paris and all the exciting places in that famous city. The Eiffel Tower Die-namics die-cut from gold makes a classic and shiny focal point for this design and I’ve layered it over some die-cut felt hearts (Stitched Heart STAX Die-namics) that add in a lot of subtle texture. This central focal point with famed area is inspired to today’s sketch challenge. I love adding layers at the center of the design to really emphasize the theme of the design.
If you love to create from sketches, be sure to check out this week’s MFT Stamps sketch, #MFTWSC338. Today’s sketch is a very symmetrical design with a central focal point. I’ve kept it fairly close to the original and had fun with a simple design. I hope you’ll join in the challenge for some creative time! You can find all the details here on the MFT Challenge Blog. If you’ve never played along, it’s super fun and easy. I hope you’ll join us!
One of the ways I’ve really added movement to this very symmetrical design is to use a background die-cut that has lots of diagonals. I love the Four Way Chevron Cover-Up Die-namics for this reason and it really draws the eye into that center area. As per the sketch layout, I’ve also added in a die-cut frame using the Single Stitch Line Rectangle Frames Die-namics. I really didn’t want to take away from the great background lines so I die-cut it from Smooth White Card Stock as well for cohesion.
