First of all I scraplifted an idea from my favorite Paige Evans.. If you've been reading you know- I can't get enough of her layouts!
So I gathered my scraps.... and well ... while I got my other supplies... Pumpkin made himself at home... on my scraps :)
I picked out the colors I thought went together, and a background paper that would go well with those colors.. I used like a bold color scheme heavy on the blues/yellows/oranges than I cut them in to 1 3/4 squares. ( so basically I had to pick bigger scraps I had )
I used the compass to make circle like rays from the opposite corners with about an inch space between each. Than cut down the two pictures from the CWC 5k I did earlier this summer.
After I cut the squares, I than cut them in half to make triangles- but than quickly realized those triangles were even kinda too big so I cut the triangles...in to...smaller triangles :) Clever- I know. I overlapped them in no real particular pattern- although I tried not to use the same paper close to each other.
I added the CWC 5k title for the page and other ampersands in the other corner- soon realized I didn't like it so I did remove those although I dont have a new picture of that.
And I took the picture crappy therefore - i can't crop it right :( #blogfail again. But that is the end result and I love this page... It makes me happy!
Have you done any projects or anything in life that has made you happy lately?! :) DO IT if you haven't!
