I was really taken with the challenge at Moxie Fab World that Cath calls Mixy Matchy Style - combining many patterns in a pleasing way. I should be able to do that easily, given my background in quilting; one of my favorite parts of making a quilt was choosing the fabrics. But this was a true challenge to me. Compared to some of the examples that Cath showed us, this is pretty tame, but it's a start! After playing with dozens of patterns, here's what I came up with for my first try:
I started with that K&Company Susan Winget bird grand adhesions sticker. I've had it for years and decided I'd make it the focal point of my card. The papers I finally decided on come from so many collections, old and new: October Afternoon Sidewalks and 9 to 5, My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose Mabel and Bramble Rose, Fancy Pants Park Bench, and Basic Grey BowTies. I added some Hobby Lobby lace, washi tape from Michael's and stickers by Cosmo Cricket as my sentiment.
It all came together once I decided on this Page Maps sketch that I had pinned. Without that I'd still be playing with my papers! This was really fun, Cath, thank you for pushing me out of my comfort zone; I'm going to try another one soon!
