KICKS... ( ScrapFit Challenge )

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

I had everything set out for this LO before I realized it fit perfectly
with the ScrapFit Warm-Up #31 that is to use a patterned paper
for the background.  I had actually planned to use the cream text
paper for the entire LO and then the peachy hexagon as just an
accent.  I changed it around to challenge myself a little bit.  

Here is the link to their blog post:

I decided to give myself another little challenge so other than those two papers, 
I made myself use everything that was either on my desk or within arms reach.
My goal was to use up all the scraps and previous pieces I cut with my Silhouette
which are all crammed into a little bowl.  The paper I used for the photo mat was
a really old piece of paper that I had used to make some little cards for
my son's class...they were the sticks for a popsicle and I mis-measured and the 
Silhouette cut right on the edge.  It reminded me of the scancards we used to 
have for testing in college...And was a great place to tuck more things into!

I also went a little out of my comfort zone to use black thread for my stitching.  
It looked like the tiny scrap I used from the starburst paper from October Afternoon
that has the same black zigzag stitching between the patterns.
