Hi everyone, it is with great excitement that I do up my very first ever Mojo Monday blog post. I have seen ladies in our group do these and thought it looked like fun. However I have always doubted if I have the time and more so the Talent as all the creations I have seen have been amazing! Anyhoo I thought about it over and over for quite a while and then I decided that I love what I do and what I make so surely someone else will enjoy it too. So the entry is for Mojo Monday 403. Anyway enough chatting let's go have a look at what I have made.
So for the card base I used very vanilla card stock. I added a layer of Elegant Eggplant cardstock then for the feature of the Layout I layered up Delightful Dijon on top of Very Vanilla, and then Mint Macaron DSP on top of very vanilla cardstock. Finally I wanted to use a doily but to my horror realized the die is no-longer current (insert vary sad face here) so instead I took forever to freehand scallop edged circle just big enough to go over the sides of the previous layer in Elegant Eggplant cardstock and used that as a template to cut around in Very Vanilla, talk about doing things the hard way lol.
Then I got down to the prettying it up, seriously why not right lol. So I measured out a length of White Jute Ribbon (3.2cm) and cut it approx. in half down the length of the ribbon. And also cut a length of Sahara Sand Lace Trim (2.2cm), I layered the Jute on Top of the Trim and did the little cuts on the end (is there a technical term for this? No idea lol). This wad adhered on top of the Delightful Dijon layer. Next was the Basic Pearls, I used the largest one and spaced them on every second scallop. The flowers, tell me about the flowers I hear you saying.... The flowers are done using the Tip Top Taupe DSP out of the In Color DSP stack. I will do a video soon and set up a you tube page thingy up and going so I do up instructions on a lot of projects that I do and Any requests I might get from you all :).
Anyway I hope you like my first entry and be sure to check back often as I do posts as regularly as time allows in my crazy house.
Until next time stay well and happy crafting Tamie xxx
