Hello Everyone! It is so good to be back. I needed to take a break for a little while and catch up with my “real” life. Don’t you hate it when you real life gets in the way of your crafting? It feels so good to back! I am thrilled to share with you a Gilli inspiration project today.
Today starts a new challenge over at he House of Gilli and in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, we would like you to use something Green on your project! Pretty simple right? Oh there are so many different ways you can incorporate green into your project.
My project features Jeans Gilli getting ready for spring! While there is still a lot of snow on the ground here in Michigan, I am dreaming of springtime. So I thought this would be the perfect project to bring a little spring time cheer.
I tend to shy away from patterned paper in my projects. I am not sure why. I have TONS of patterned paper, and I love to look at it!When I do use it I tend to use just one as an accent. So I challenged myself to use some of my patterned paper and use a solid only as an accent. I am pleasantly surprised at how it turned out! I may have to do this more often. I mixed patterns and textures for my card base. I didn’t add any green to Gilli herself because I wanted her to stand out from the rest of the card. Gilli is of course colored with Copics (could I color with anything else anymore?).
I hope you hop on over to the House of Gilli blog and enter your green project for this current challenge!
As a bonus for sticking with me during my absence if you leave a comment on this post, I will pick a name next weekend to send a surprise goodie to. Good luck!
