Dream Valley DT - Anything But Square

I hope that you are all managing to stay safe during this mad weather and getting the chance to enjoy a wonderful weekend of sport. This is the first year that I've really got into Wimbledon, but we have all really enjoyed it, especially Andy Murray's games and I loved the mixed doubles match that Paes and Vesnina won - very entertaining! We also get to enjoy the British Grand Prix, which is on as I type my blog post!

Anyway, back to the Dream Valley, our new challenge is Anything but Square and the inspiration from the team is brilliant! After much deliberation, I decided that this was a good incentive to finish the picture I have been working on for a while for Louise's bedroom. The background patches are a mix of First Edition Spring Drop and from stash. I have drawn the letters free hand, with the help from my ruler and circular nesties.

I have coloured Saturated Canary's beautiful Hipster with Polychromos pencils. The hair kind of reminds me of Lou and turquoise and red are her favourite colours. The Magnolia karate girl has been used as Louise loves her taekwondo. I've just realised that I need to colour some green tags to make the belt correct for her current grading!

Some flowers, die cut Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourishes and a die cut teddy compete the picture.....finally! Now I just need to start and finish one for Euan!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Paper Shelter - Flower Power

Stampavie and More - Lots of Flowers

I also had fun decorating a hair clip - simple colours and design to suit my simple tastes! I am seriously considering buying a glue gun so that I can make a few more hair would be useful for a few other things too, wouldn't it? Anyway, here is a wee pic of it

So, what can you make for us at Dream Valley? Anything you like as long as it is not square!! I can't wait to see what you all make.


Happy crafting!
