Lara here. Been on a little hiatus, but slowly getting back into things.
I love me some colors, but sometimes pink can be too sweet for me. So, i decided to mix this up a little bit to create a more grungy and relaxed color combo. I’ve really really been into deconstructing and reconstructing lately, so it wasn’t a huge stretch.
I cut the double-sided cardstock sheet that came with the kit into some strips and refit them together like a puzzle, taping the pieces on the new back. Then i cut the sheet one more time in the other direction and taped it together again so i ended up with two sheets of 6″x12″. Then i glued them back to back so you can’t see the tape creating the final 6″x12″ cover.
Put a little gesso on, a packing tape transfer quote, some silly, but cute as heck, doodads and voila – something that makes me smile.
I also took a couple of other miscellaneous sheets and napkin and “binded” it all together with two brads and that dingleberry ribbon which is SO much fun to play with. Inside I’ll put more inspiring quotes about creating as well as other little notes I might write to myself over the next couple of weeks.
