OUR WEEK WITH CLAIRE
Our Design Team Challenge this week is called "Ric Rac Paddy Whack" ... where we have been challenged to do is to use the self-adhesive ric rac that was included in both of the Picture Perfect kits this month. Here is what I came up with.
My initial thought was to create three ric rac "shelves" for my photos to sit on ... but after playing with the design for a bit, I decided that the three lengths of ric rac weren't substantial enough and decided to layer the photos onto paper strips instead. However, I DID keep the middle row of ric rac, layering it on top of the green paper strip. I love the fuzzy-fun texture it adds!
I printed all of my photos in black and white, with the exception of my favorite photo of my niece, the vertical one in the top left. I decorated this photo with one of the chipboard frames from the kit and several cute embellishments, to set it apart from the others even more.
I fussy-cut small flower clusters from the My Mind's Eye "Sarah" paper to accent the small photos. The scale of these cute little flower bunches were a perfect fit!
I framed one more photo of my niece at the bottom that was special to me from the week she stayed with us ... one day I showed her how to use my Cricut machine and we spent the afternoon creating a few things together. She LOVED it so much and is a natural crafter! It was definitely our bonding moment!
Thank you so much for coming by! We'll see you again soon!
