Friday Challenge at Quick Quotes!

Happy Weekend to you!!!

I'm so honored today to share that I'm hosting the next challenge over at the Quick Quotes blog!  Please be sure to stop on over and say hello!

Here's my project using the October Club Q kit featuring the “Giving Thanks” line by Teresa Collins. I started with this fun harlequin shape template and my Mango Mai Tai Chalk Ink and created the diamond pattern.  Can you take a guess as to what the challenge might be?:
I layered the elements using the pre-cut laser pieces from the kit for my layers under the photo and for the scalloped photo corner.   
Here is a detail image for you.  Notice that although a lot of white space is used, the layers are enough here to be very interesting in the overall design.  I loved how the orange gems from the kit fit perfectly into my harlequin shapes!  

The Challenge?:  White Space!  This is near and dear to my heart because I adore the look of pages that incorporate a strategic use of white space!  I decided this would be a fun design style to focus a challenge on.  I hope you agree!!! 

Techniques Used:
  • The harlequin pattern was first masked using a template and the Mango Mai Tai PowderPuff Chalk Ink.
  • I added a little bling and ribbon for some texture and just played around with the layers a bit.
