If you are coming from Marciava Warrell's blog , you are on the right track.  In case you get lost, you can get a complete list of participants at the bottom of  Melissa Robinson's blog. This month we have 14 Close to My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using the "Love of Color" to inspire their art. To enjoy this hop is quite simple to do - just click on the link at the bottom of the post on each blog to move to the next one. Here we go!  

The CTMH Love of Color book is amazing.  I really hadn't checked it out so thoroughly and glad I joined this hop to see all the great ideas and "Artwork Tips".  My inspiration came from pg 35 using the following color combinations. sapphire, fern, goldrush, raspberry and pixie.  It's been a long time since I made one of these origami wreaths.  I first learned to make these from Julie Reynolds.  They really are easy. Today I was crafting with kids at church (19 total, though not all at the same time.) I really needed to look at the directions, though one of the 5th graders who learned to do the wreath 2 years ago was making one and quickly tutored me!  So FUN!!
Now hop on over to Catherine Nowak's blog to see what kind of fabulous art she's created.  Be sure to drop a comment, we enjoy the encouragement.  I hope you enjoy the hop.  If you see an item(s) you would like to purchase, contact your CTMH consultant or you can shop HERE.
