Create Your Own Fun

I never thought I would have to look in the garage for inspiration, but with this challenge, that is exactly what I did.  The 123 challenge at Our Bright Stars and Us required Brown, the word "Create", and the use of tape (of any kind).  As I was looking through my paint bin, I came across Frog Tape...  yup, green painter's tape.  I used it to wrap some chipboard letters.  I am pleased with the result.

Sketch inspiration came from Sketch Inspiration #225.

I wanted to try my hand at creating my own flower.  I took a 1 1/2 " strip of material, gathered it and made a circle.  I then cut the outside edges to make fringe and added the button.  I'm okay with it for the first time.  Modifications are needed in the future...

Comments always appreciated.  Have a great day!


  1. Love it! The background paper is perfect for this page ... and I totally love how the "fun" came out with the duct tape! That gives it a great element of texture ... Love the journaling on the strips, too and I think your fabric flower is great! The colors just pop off of the page and I like the circle mat for the picture ... great job!

  2. Let's Fun!!! With Fun colors and fun sketch!!! Gorgeous creation!!!
