It's time for our new challenge at Ooh La La Creations and this time our theme is Summertime.
I've used an image and papers from the Paula Oakley Collection, available here , and made a large 20cm square card with them.
I wanted that central square to fit exactly when placed from corner to corner, and was up to my ears in glue when I realised I couldn't work out the size in my head, so I think Mark was a bit surprised that although I was sitting crafting I had an urgent need for him to find the square root of 200 for me! (For future reference, it's 14.14 and a square with edges that length in cm will perfectly fit diagonally onto a 20cm square card)
If you look carefully the main image has a tiny white line around it between the picture and the turquoise edge, and I wanted to replicate that, but my white gel pen didn't show up very well on some of the papers so I went for contrast and used a black fine liner instead, then distressed the edges of each piece.
Finally I added Candi to the corners, picking up the cool blue and aqua shades.
