Guest Designing at CAS-ology
So, this week I was asked to guest design over at CAS-ology. :-). They have such fun challenges and an amazing design team. This weeks cue word is "KNIT".
So many possibilities with this word. I had a few ideas and was playing around but wasn't coming up with anything that I loved. Then while sitting and watching TV inspiration struck! Unfortunately, it took some effort to get my idea to work. It just didn't look right. I had to step back, take a break and come back to it. Then it just seemed to fall into place. :-). Anyway, enough talking about it, let me show you!
My first thought when I was told the cue word was what kinds of things are knitted? Socks, mittens, sweaters...... Then it came to me, eurecka! Scarves! I could make a small scarf! Then it was, how the heck am I going to do that??! I thought about all the Christmas crafts I had been making for my craft fairs and figured I could do something similar. I took an argyle sock (my Mom sent them to me for my crafts. Don't worry, they've never been worn. LOL) and cut a strip out of it cutting the ends to make a fringe. I tied it like a scarf would be and glued it to my white panel. It's looks kind of black in the photo but the main colour of the scarf is a dark purple. I stamped my sentiment (Technique Tuesday, Flurries set) in timber brown StazOn. Then popped my panel up with foam dots on my white card base which I think helps create visual interest without being overwhelming.
I think I'll link this up to Keep it Simple where their theme is "warm". Scarves keep you warm, right? :-)
Well, thanks for stopping by for a visit and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
