3 to Inspire with Trina

Hi everyone. I am back today to share our new weekly Saturday post "3 to Inspire." This weekly blog feature is for those of you who  need a little extra push to get scrapbooking, keep scrapbooking or, maybe, stretch your comfort zones a little and try something you haven't tried before.

Your take on the weekly challenge can be scrapbooking or PL and you'll want to include all 3 inspirations on your page.
Here we go!

Your weekly inspiration:

  1. Create a banner.
  2. Stitch on your page.
  3. Use ink, mist or paint splatters.
This is what I did with the challenge and for those of you who want a little sneak at February's "Cherry Blossoms" add-on kit, this layout was made with the soon-to-be revealed kit. There are some bold colors in this kit, but I went with the soft, spring pastels.

Here are 3 close-ups showing each of the 3 inspirations. The first one is a banner made by cutting triangles out of a piece of patterned paper, then sewing them down with a thick piece of sewing thread layered behind the triangles. I used a combination of straight and zigzag stitching to sew the banner down:

This next close-up shows stitching:

And the last picture shows paint splatters. I cheated and used rub-on paint splatters that come with the Cherry Blossoms kit:

Thanks for visiting. Be sure to share your challenge layouts in the Citrus Twist Kits Gallery or on the Facebook Citrus Twist Kits Fan Page!
