It is time for the next installation of Challenge the 2RedBananas' Design Team. This week the DT members are using the second kit of supplies sent to us by Jeanette #Head Banana#.
This kit included paper from My Mind's Eye's Bella Bella - French Flea Market Collection, ribbon from May Arts, Dew Drops and a ribbon buckle slider. All of these papers and embellishments can be found at 2RedBananas.com.
I actually used these supplies for two projects - a layout for Kate's "Year of Firsts" album and a card.
The colors of these papers made me think of Fall, so I used them to make a Thanksgiving layout. The base is Kraft paper with random blocks and strips of the MME DP, which is double sided. I adhered the Dew Drops along the ribbon and in the upper right corner. The journaling strip along the bottom was threaded through part of the ribbon slider.
The card base is cream CS with a block of green CS and blocks of the MME DP. I inked all of the paper edges with Vandyke Brown ink. The sentiment is from 2RedBananas' Quotes stamp set.
This was a fun challenge, and I was glad for the excuse to get something done on Kate's album #I told my husband I had "work" to do#, and take a break from painting my kitchen. I really love this line of papers. Be sure to go to 2RedBananas and see it for yourself. And go to 2RB's blog (http://2redbananas.blogspot.com) to see how the other DT members used these same supplies.
