|Design Credit to Kelly Holifield, Paper Sketches|
I accomplished my goal of using all 10 colors by using a couple of the patterned papers as well as stamping tone on tone on the Sorbet cardstock. I trimmed a zip strip in half and used it as a bottom border. The most fun was creating the circles. I stamped the actual circle with a stamp from Wheel of Life (D1545-retired) and then stamped and trimmed the quilt like pieces from the Chantilly WOTG stamp set (C1553-retired). Each one is a different color. To break up the white, I masked the circles and used slightly thinned black acrylic paint to speckle the background. The title was done on the Cricut and the embellishments are from the Black and White Dots. I argued with myself about adding more dots, but decided to leave well enough alone.
I need to be honest...I fussed over this one and it took more time than I really should be spending on a single layout. However, I am pleased with the results and am glad I challenged myself to expand my creativity.
