All About Circles over at LLLC

Morning all. How's your day looking?! Snow where you are yet?! Nup, not here either. Still all clear for another day. Thank goodness. It always makes everything so much more difficult (in this country).. yet beautiful. Until it turns to slush.

Enough of the weather talk, you're here to see some Friday Inspiration over at La La Land Crafts, aren't ya!!

Well this week we have been all about


Either circle cards or a circle in the design. So I went with circles in my design, cut using my trusty nesties!!

I used an image from the new release, Mod Marci, doesn't she look so relaxed and cool with her guitar and those gorgeous ginger locks of hers?! Wow - what I'd give to have hair like that.

I've used Copics and ProMarkers - naturally - to colour her.
Skin - YR000, YR00, E01, E11, R20, R32
Hair - E95, E11, YR14, E07
Green - Bright Green, Lime Green
Browns - Cocoa, Henna, Walnut
Guitar - Ginger, Spice, Cool Grey 3, 4, Black
Jeans - Cornflower, China Blue, Midnight Blue 
I've paper pieced Marci's hat with some scraps of paper - that was no mean feat. My printer wasn't having ANY of it at first, the paper piece was just far too small. But I got there in the end. *wipes brow* That pattern would make awesome material!! 

So let me talk ya through it. I used some scraps from MME Lime Twist - Life of the Party collection. Some of you frugal people will be pleased to know I have nearly conquered that whole paper pad, scraps and all. Not many papers left to be used at all. :) It is just me, or does that not make you feel excited?! Means I gotta replace a paper pad with some new stuff!! Not til February though, I've promised myself.

I die cut four different sized circles and arranged them randomly on my card. I placed Marci atop the biggest one on dimensionals. I've stamped a sentiment from PTI Butterfly dreams on another scrap of paper and created a banner. To finish off the circle theme I added three pearl brads and silver spacers to the design. I adhered it all down to a warm brown card base and doodled around the outside edge. Job done.

Is it just me.. or are you all having GREAT difficulty tryna find challenges that AIN'T Christmas related?! Geeez!! Roll on the New Year when things can start getting back to normal. I think I've been on Christmas over load this year. :/

Enjoy your day, whatever you get up to. Remember, it's almost the weekend! :)
