LOC Garden Border Strawberry Basket
I hope where you are it's cooler than where I am! In the middle of a record breaking heat wave, I am down with a cold turned sinus infection! Oh well... this too will pass.
Today I wanted to share a project I made some time ago but never showed, as I was hoping a magazine might pick it up. However... this is strawberry season and I decided to share it with you now. I made my own template for this and some day if I can figure out how to do it, I will put it on line to share. The pretty strawberry border is from Layers of Color and is called Garden Border. Be sure to check out the other great borders in that set! I colored with Copics and made four borders to wrap around the top of my basket.
The basket was cut from 12 x 12 card stock and sponged with distress inks. The basic pattern is of the square bottom and the two pieces for each side. Then there is a band that wraps around the top, giving rigidity and finishing off the inside nicely. Then the garden border is adhered over that. Very simple and I hope to figure out how to share the pattern. I don't have PDF maker and I can't scan 12 x 12 so I'm not sure how to do it. If I figure it out, it will be filed under my Tutorial Tab.
That's it for today. Just got back from the Dr with lots of meds so I'm hoping I'll be feeling better tomorrow. My sister and I have plans to go to the mountains so I really need to feel better! :)
I am entering this in the following challenges:
Little Miss Muffet Challenges - summer, Shelly's Images - anything goes
Have a wonderful weekend, and to all my east coast US friends.... stay cool!!!!
