Movement and Colour

Happy Sunday to all,

Yesterday we had a great day out at the London 2012 Paralympics. We watched the sitting Volleyball. To sum up-truly amazing athletes, fantastic organisation and most of all, a fun and friendly atmosphere! Check out the photos later in this post.

My card today is for the Moxie Fab Movement Challenge. I had been directed to this from a few of the blogs that I read and wanted to learn more about 'movement' in design. Movement is the way the different features of the design, such as the shapes, lines and textures, cause your eyes to move around the design. I was fascinated by this and decided to give it a go. A real challenge but interesting. What made it more of a challenge for me was to use the Colour Q combo of coral choc chip, saffron, sky blue and white. I found this combo a bit freaky but, after a bit of playing around, did manage it!

The movement I have tried to show through the flourishes to the ribbon (led by the blue gems) to the sentiment and then to the bottom of the page, again led by the gems. I hope it works!!

And now for some photos of us enjoying the Paralympics

Me, before the game, proving I was there!

Actually in the stadium before the Brazil/Egypt match

Hubby, not being very athletic, eating pizza!

Have a great Sunday x
