Yesterday I was instantly inspired by Kim's Cocoa Daisy challenge. Kim has gorgeous style and uses lots of white on her layouts. They're always fresh and bright and I couldn't wait to give it a try. I love this snapshot of my son's first goal for his middle school team. I decided to play off of the red and white of the uniforms. Cocoa Daisy's Feb. kit has a brand-new, hot-off-the-press Crafters Workshop pie chart stencil designed by Ronda Palazzari. I started with the stencil and Mister Huey's color mist. I wanted the design to pop, so I used a Zig Emboss Writer and used various colors of Zing embossing powders to add some color and dimension. I then cut pieces of the pie from vellum and machine stitched it to the pie chart. A few Kaisercraft red pearls and some wood veneer and my pie chart was complete.
I then decided to use Stephanie's Feb. sketch challenge and create a two-page layout. I'm really happy with this fun, fresh layout and it all began with a challenge. If you're stuck creatively, a challenge is a great place to start! Thanks for stopping by!
