Guest Designing at CAS-ology

So, this week I was asked to guest design over at CAS-ology.  :-). They have such fun challenges and an amazing design team.  This weeks cue word is "KNIT".

So many possibilities with this word.  I had a few ideas and was playing around but wasn't coming up with anything that I loved.  Then while sitting and watching TV inspiration struck!  Unfortunately, it took some effort to get my idea to work.  It just didn't look right.  I had to step back, take a break and come back to it.  Then it just seemed to fall into place.  :-). Anyway, enough talking about it, let me show you!

My first thought when I was told the cue word was what kinds of things are knitted?  Socks, mittens, sweaters......  Then it came to me, eurecka! Scarves!  I could make a small scarf!  Then it was, how the heck am I going to do that??!  I thought about all the Christmas crafts I had been making for my craft fairs and figured I could do something similar.  I took an argyle sock (my Mom sent them to me for my crafts.  Don't worry, they've never been worn.  LOL) and cut a strip out of it cutting the ends to make a fringe.  I tied it like a scarf would be and glued it to my white panel.  It's looks kind of black in the photo but the main colour of the scarf is a dark purple.  I stamped my sentiment (Technique Tuesday, Flurries set) in timber brown StazOn.  Then popped my panel up with foam dots on my white card base which I think helps create visual interest without being overwhelming.

I think I'll link this up to Keep it Simple where their theme is "warm".  Scarves keep you warm, right?  :-)

Well, thanks for stopping by for a visit and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
