Try the Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab for Your UFO!
So, I am so loving the Moxie Fab blog! And saw they have a feature called Tuesday Trigger. I love to try a challenge to finish off a UFO or Un Finished Object. You may recall that I had to try this crochet technique I found at Lolly Chessies blog. I even created a cut file to share, so you could make your own. But, when I finished my beautiful crocheted circle frame, I had no idea what to do with it.
Then I saw the Moxie Fab Tuesday trigger, a sweater and thought of my Basic Grey Ambrosia, Quince paper. Doesn't it remind you of the sweater?!
I am not much of a neutral girl and thought it needed some green...something with fringe like the sweater. Oh, my frame!
I wanted to play with my Quince paper and make a flower. I fussy cut the motifs and inked the edges. I tucked them all under a swirly stem from my Inkadinkadoo Bold Damasks (oh and there is a Damask challenge on Moxie Fab too!). And yes, that is the Tim Holtz rosette again! Can you say obsessive? Prima flowers and a few buttons and bling finish it off.
So, here is my finished page and I am so happy with it! Visit Moxie Fab and try the Tuesday Trigger to finish up your UFO's and your gonna love the results!
