BLOBS #105 RESULTS

Welcome to RESULT'S DAY! How did your characters come out?

When I created Blobs Monday, I needed a new direction. To avoid Same-Shape Syndrome, I decided to use events from the weekend as inspiration. My son's music school had their Spring concert on Sunday and instruments were still floating around in my mind (along with super awesome performances from all!). The form most interesting to me was...the guitar! After studying it a bit more, zooming in on my favorite parts and playing with silhouettes, I had Batch #105. Can you tell which part of the guitar Blob 1 came from?

Here's a look at my sheet before and after characters...

Who knew an instrument could inspire an entire collection!

Before I started the design process I needed a theme. Can you spot what it is from above?

If you guessed LOVE, you win. All of my characters are celebrating...MOMS! With Mother's Day this weekend I created characters built around loving, cozy, sweet caring mama creatures. It definitely helped me sort out the solution for Blob 4! Now that was a tough one.

Let's take a closer look at how these characters developed...

And that's it! Did you feel the love?

Next week we have something very special planned so be sure to stop back in. We'll leave you with a couple hints...it has to do with one enormous experiment and a fantastic prize. And maybe...just maybe, some fun too.

Thanks for visiting and Happy Mother's Day to all the fabulous mamas out there!
