Gingersnap Creations, and this week's challenge is to use *Fans* in your creation. You could make a fan, or make a card, canvas, hanging, or other piece that incorporates a fan. Take it wherever you'd like!
My card uses an image generously provided by Lululiz in Lalaland on *this post*. I saw it a while back and knew this challenge was coming up, so I immediately filed it away in my collage art file. You can click on the image to see the sentiment better if you'd like.... it says "The Language of Fans - The fan a language sweet imparts, 'Tis read my many loving hearts." Apparently in Victorian days the flick of a woman's fan could have special meaning? Goodness, but love is complicated, LOL! Anyway, I used some patterned papers from the Curio collection, scored and folded them accordion style, and used them as trims behind my ladies. The sweet postcard got only a few rhinestone embellies on the fan part. I also tied a little tassel behind the image to evoke the tassel on the fan image.
The design team and visiting artists have produced some stunning fan art over at the Gingersnap Creations blog - I've had such fun looking at the details on each piece. We'd love for you to have a look and play along. :)
