Time to Grow?

So I swung by Boo's colour challenge this week at SAS and thought the colours would be challenging, so I found some time to play and this is the result...simply called Grow...


I concentrated more on the elements, so you might find the papers a little....er, boring, but such is life eh? And I must admit, I kinda like how the elements turned out, especially the grasshoppers (which is saying something since I have a morbid fear of bugs!). Plus I it gave me a chance to play with a few of Atomic Cupcake's actions that I hadn't tried previously - so lots of credit due to AC!

Anyhow, the set includes:

  • 4 patterned and 4 textured solid papers
  • 4 little bows in two styles (thanks to Royanna Fritschmann)
  • 3 flowers with gem centres (from a potpourri mix, thought it was cute)
  • 3 curvy enamelled frames
  • 2 matching ornamental panels in silver & coloured glass (not previewed)
  • 2 silver & gemstone grasshoppers
  • 3 aged and stained stickers
  • 3 tooled leather tags
  • 1 quirky caterpillar on cardboard

Which makes this probably the most varied set I've come up with - so hopefully you'll find something in it that appeals. If you've got any constructive criticism of Grow, I'd be happy to hear it, and of course I'd love to know if you actually use it.

  6. You have given us a fantastic and beautifully designed fun-loving kit to use in Boo's May08 Color Challenge. Thanks for stepping outside of your safety zone because everything is just awesome. Love the beautiful patterns on your papers that have just the right mix. If your papers have all the interest that I see with the various pattern mixes, then we will have to hold you down if you added any more with your fantastic design choices. I can't wait to open this kit, including your elements, that have such a nice arrangement of shapes. Obviously, this was a fun endeaver for you because you really took these colors in hand and we are the happy recepients of your works. I can't wait to see your grasshopper although I don't consider them a fun item. LOL. It has been a pleasure to meet you. I look forward to seeing you around for June's CC. Leavin LUV! XOXOXO!
