I was straightening up my paper mess and as I was organizing I discovered, this line has a few different looks to it, like I said the fun blues, reds and oranges. Then I noticed the creams and whites... My mind was flying, what could I do to show you JUST HOW VERSATILE this line is. Ahhhh, the excitement. I stared and stared and the next morning woke up with this great idea and I was in my scrap room before the coffee was done! (That says A LOT!)
Here's what I came up with:
Once I figured out the shape I wanted it to be I cut all my pieces, distressed all the edges and started layering:
My first layer was the back of the Blue Birthday Party paper
Then I layered it with the Happy Birthday Transparency
I then cut a circle and a strip from the back of the pendants paper. I used a scallop punch for the bottom strip and adhered it to the lined paper (the first layer).
I cut strips out of the Definitions paper, I did do this creatively to make sure I had the words I wanted at the the top of the strips. Then I pleated the paper to make a "Lolly" gluing them to a piece of chipboard so they wouldn't pop up.
Then added the individual Banner letters to each piece.
I then put doilies on the tops and bottoms to give it the lacy look and connected them with large brads.
And there you have it. I love it! I hope it inspires you to see things for more that what they seam to be at first glance too. Have a great weekend! ~C
