It’s Day 2 of the Lost Coast Designs Portal to Creativity Fridafest Blog Hop! So, once you check out my Fridafest inspiration piece below…hop onto to the next blog for more creative Frida Fun!
For today’s project, I drew my inspiration from a colorful Mexican blanket, like the ones pictured below.
I love the bands of color with strips of white in between. So pretty! With the bright and beautiful colors of Mexico, it is so easy for find inspiration. Again, I hope you will find inspiration from this photo as well as my Fridafest Day 2 card below!
