challenge: paper + fabric

Hello everyone. Happy Monday! Before I discovered my love for paper I was in love with fabric, so of course getting to play with them both is pure happiness.

One of my favorite items from Partly Sunny was the K&Co Fabric Swatches and I know many of you loved it too (since it's now sold out) so how about a challenge to actually USE those? ;)


Here, I used Partly Sunny, the optic dot + bumpy road punches and a couple of swatches. One swatch to frame the picture and another one to create some fun clouds.

Using a craft knife, i cut inside & around the clouds paper and then adhered the fabric behind it with a glue pen. (tip: always cut the inside first).

So this is your challenge for the week: create a new layout using paper + fabric. When done, post it to the studio calico gallery and link it here for a chance to win a $5 gift card to the shop :)
