Wednesday Trends - Non-focal Images

Hi, everyone! Heather P. here posting this week's Wednesday Trend... One of my favorite things to do is to take the smaller, non-focal images within a set and find ways to turn them into the stars of the show! :) I think it's a really fun way to get a lot of mileage out of each set, and a lot of times these cards end up being my favorite.

There are SO many amazing girls on this DT who can really kick it out of the park when coloring images.  I mean seriously, look at any of the projects created during release or as part of the week in review threads, and you can't help but be blown away by the talent on this team.  Coloring is *not* my strong suit, so rather than embarrass myself (ha!!) I leave the coloring to the experts and try to approach the stamp sets from a different angle.

Case in point? The fun little card I created for today's post using the Aquaholic set.  I'd say the main images in this set are the darling children and their beach accessories, but I can't help but be drawn to the adorable little fish!

In previous releases, I've also been drawn to other non-focal images, such as the arrows in the School Doodles set:

Or the woodgrain hearts from Pandamonium:

The flowers from Amalia's Daisy:

Or even the overlaid hearts from Ginger:

It's really a lot of fun, and I hope that if it's not something you're already doing, it's something you'll try! :)


  1. Love your creative thinking!! All of your cards are truly out of the box. You're right, really gives more versatility to any stamp set. TFS!

  2. Love them all! Great ideas! I really love Amalia's Daisy! Sweet!


Thank you for visiting the TSG Blog, happy stamping!
