I hope you had a fabulous Easter! The weather was beautiful and I had my parents and sister over for a great meal. I made ham with all the trimmings and finished it off with a home made carrot cake with cream cheese icing. My daughter and I piped on little orange carrots complete with greenery.
Today I'm playing along with Case Study. I love the inspiration from their guest designers, and getting to try some new techniques. This week's
Case Study Challenge #85 is inspired by muse/guest designer Laurie Schmidlin.
Here's the beauty of CASE - focus on the elements you love about the design, improvise, and make a unique creation of your own. It's not hard to see all the elements that I adored about Laurie's design - the color combination, the black stitching, and the flowers with the twine and tulle. I took those elements and improvised with the supplies I had on hand and added a few extras of my own like the keyhole and key. I always love seeing all the different directions the sketch goes.
Thanks so much for having a look, I hope you are inspired to play along!
