Patchwork at Meljen's Designs.

Good morning! I hope everyone's week is going well!! I have thoroughly enjoyed riding to work in this weather! I LOVE FALL!!!  I love those crisp cool mornings.. Love being able to open the windows and let all the fresh air in!! I'm so over summer.. I hate how hot and humid it gets here!!  And we are on Thursday... only two more days to the weekend... I can't wait LOL!! I LOVE the weekend!!  I'm hoping I can get a bunch more cards finished! I'd love to have all of October's DT creations done LOL!!!  We'll see!! I still have a bit to go!  What are you all working on?

Today we are on Challenge #229 - Patchwork (make a patchwork pattern) at Meljen's Designs. Hmmm...  patchwork LOL  When I think of patchwork I think of squares so that is what I did. I used different fall papers to make the patchwork pattern. Here is what I came up with:








I used Hot Apple Pie which you can find at the Meljen's Shop. I love this image.. apples just make me think fall! And a yummy Apple Pie.. Mmmm..with a scoop of vanilla ice cream LOL Yum!!!  So, I pulled out my scraps from the last years fall papers and I used them to make my patchwork design. I stitched around each of the squares. I colored the image with my Copic Markers and did a bit of decoupage on it. The Thanks is cut from my Cameo. The die cut is a Spellbinders die cut. Then I added the large ribbon to top it off.

Copic Markers Used:
  • Pie Crust: E31, E33, E35, E37
  • Ribbon/Apples: R14, R35, R46
  • Pan: C00, C1, C3, C5
  • Oven Mitt: B02, B04, B06
  • Steam and Apple Insides: E81
