Ready Set Recline


I love the Tuesday Trigger over on the Moxie Fab Blog this week; it is Mapping Color.  I love the different thickness of the striped fabric and how the stripes of the strips of fabric next to each other don't line up.  I mimicked the look by cutting different widths striped paper from Joy Ride by Cosmo Cricket.  I love this collection and what was even more fun it was free. I won it from the Three Cheers for Chairs Challenge (Thanks, Cath!).   The lamp shade was paper pieced using a bit of polka dot that was a swatch on the packaging, since it was just the right size.



I combined two inspirations together by using this sketch from 2 Sketches for you.  I will be off the grid for a few day on vaca, but I will schedule a post or two.  I can't wait for a little R&R!  Have a great week/weekend.

Supplies:
Paper: Patterned Paper (Joy Ride by Cosmo Cricket); Kraft and Whisper White Cardstock (SU!); 
Ink: Soft Suede and Chocolate Chip ink (SU!); Turquoise Gem Versamagic (Tsukineko)
Stamps: On My Couch and Chairished (PTI); Sentiment (A Muse)
Extras: Jute Twine (May Arts)
