Serendipity by Heather

I don't think it is a big secret that when I come up with a challenge I want it to be "out there" so I don't typically choose the kind of challenge you may find everywhere else. I want to push The Groovy Chicks and our awesome friends who play along to do something outside of the norm. Look what happens when Heather is challenged! One word: Art!

I was not so sure about this challenge at all! Yes, I have lots of scraps but that wasn't the issue. My problem was making a lo using so much patterned and colored paper and yet not have it detract from the picture. Well, I think I just may have figured it out!!!

I took some Scenic Route paper that I had left over and began cutting into all different sizes of squares/rectangles. I knew I wanted this paper as my background because the pic was taken during the 4th of July parade this past summer. I wanted the red/white/blue/star theme to prevail.

By matting the pic on a solid red piece of paper and then using the arrow and other embellies to frame around the pic, I think it pulls the eye right to the middle and to the picture.

I did have to do some doodling on the arrow and journaling spot so that it wouldn't blend into the background so much! But overall, I was pleased with the "quilted" look of the lo! Will definitely be trying this again!!!
