Inspired by Pinterst

Happy Tuesday friends!

I had this Pinterest inspired post up at Scraptastic yesterday, and thought you all might find a little inspo in it too.  Check out this photo.

With so many hard angles, and contrasting colours I thought this image would make a perfect springboard for a layout (or even card) design.  Here is what I came up with using the image as my inspiration:
 
I used my Silhouette to cut chevrons into my 12x12 cardstock, and backed each one with co-ordinating patterned papers from the kit, I added a few extra chevrons in various places to create a little more dimension and fullness to the layout.

I like to use my sewing maching to achieve the flipped up sides to the chevrons, but the same look can achieved simply by using very narrow double sided adhesive.



This photo is of Théa, and several of her Kick It friends just moments after they performed their Tap Small Group number at a CanDance Competition in Regina back in April.  It cracks me up to see all that "character" oozing out of them in this shot.  The did an amazing job with the fast paced, very technical choreography they were given.  This is one of my favourite dances of the hundreds (well okay maybe that's a slight exaggeration, though it felt like it at times with all the driving back and forth to class and outside practices, haha) they learned this year.

My friend Susan joined me in the Pinterest challenge.  Please hop over to the Scrapstastic Blog to see her take.

Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by, Pin It
