Cocoa Daisy actually designs some of their own papers in the kit each month!
I took on the hexagon from the main kit.
First I tried Heidi Swapp gold Color Shine on one of her resist papers but the color was much too subtle.
Then I used mustard, which was much too bold, but a lot of wiping eventually toned it down somewhat.
There is a lot more white space on the inspiration paper...
Next was the chevron from the Paint Chip add-on.
I liked how it had a translucent feel to the chevrons so I used vellum!
I knew I would never have the patience to do those tiny pieces so I went with a 6x6" paper.
I simply positioned the pieces randomly one at a time in a column starting at the edge.
By sewing through the center I didn't have to worry about adhesive showing through.
I had creased the vellum to cut it & that helped the shapes "hug" the paper & lay flat.
I really liked the beautiful watercolor pattern on this
American Crafts autumn crisp cherry patterned paper
from the Palette add-on.
The inspiration here is obviously NOT the bold hot pink graffiti paper but the tinted script.
I used a Basic Grey script dotted paper & randomly misted the colors as in the original.
The thought was to dry brush the white areas in but I confess I still haven't done it!
BAD COUNTERFEITER! Let's face it - inspiration may strike but it's not much use if you don't follow through...
And I'm still considering forging these:
In real life these are truly stitched with thread, but I kind of like them like this!
