Its time for some crafty CASE Study Challenge fun! This month our muse is JJ Bolton aka Ribbon Girls! JJ is a clean and simple genius. She always incorporates some interesting innovative element to her designs and this one is no different. Check out the inspiration photo! JJ called this one "deconstructed chevrons" and you'll have to check her blog here to see how she dissected a chevron border die cut and came up with this - told you she thinks a little different than the rest of us! Don't believe me - go now - I'll wait... check her blog here.
How to case this one and make it my own.... You can pick any of the elements from the inspiration - the color, pattern, layout etc. Just incorporate it into your design and link it up over at CASE. I love all the color and the beautiful geometric pattern JJ created. I told you last week I'm a little intimidated by JJ's vision of the world - but I'm up for a challenge. I played around with lots of different ideas and when I got to this one I knew it was the way to go! I weaved strips of ribbon into a basket pattern - and I won't lie - I did say "dang it JJ" more than once! I did go through loads of ribbon - but it wasn't expensive - I used 1/4" satin ribbon - the sort that you can find at Michael's on sale 4 or 5 for a dollar every once in a while. If you are like me you stocked up and have been waiting for the right moment to dig those babies out. I tried stamping my sentiment on all sorts of things (vellum, sheer white ribbon, satin ribbon, and on and on) before I settled on the yellow twill. I hope it makes you happy - I love the bright shiny color!
Check out what the rest of the design team came up with for this one. Oh and just to remind you Miss Anya Schrier of Life is What You Make It blog - another C&S Rockstar is our guest designer of the month! Talk about a power play!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope I see you over at CASE Study!
