Farm Fresh ....

   
Happy Saturday evening everyone!  We're having a "sleep-over" at our house tonight.  The boys are engrossed in a video game...their hands leaving the controls only long enough to grab some popcorn.  Can you hear the hootin' and hollerin'?  My sweet girl has her nose in a book ... reminds me of myself when I was her age - reading morning, noon, and night. 

It's been a long time since I've joined in on a Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World.  I still visit the blog daily ... Cath always keeps us up to date with the newest products.  And the featured artists are sooo talented - I make a point to stop in to see the wonderful works on their blogs.  The inspirational photos that Cath posts are beyond words ... she never fails to get our attention with fabulous colors, textures, and dimension.  This image is no exception.  Titled "Farm Fresh" ... a sheet of pure white with a splash of turquoise and a row of bright tangerine lined up like links of a chain.  It's fabulous, isn't it?!  Moxie Fab, actually!


Beginning with Very Vanilla cardstock, I layered an old world map print from the Newsprint collection with turquoise patterns from the scrap drawer.  The lace is held in place with a row of fun shades of orange taken from the Brights and Sweet Stitches button collections.  Some Natural Hemp Twine ties them together.  A fabulous rub-on is used for the sentiment....I couldn't say it better myself.


I dyed seam binding with  Tempting Turquoise ink for the bow.  Layered turquoise, white felt, and tangerine flowers help to embellish a crystal topped stick pin.  I added a little pearl too - can you see it peaking out from beneath the petals?



I enjoyed creating this for you today ... thank you Cath for the inspiration ... and thank you, my friends, for stopping by!
