Color and shape

Hey everyone. Today is my day to post on the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge blog. Today the challenge is to use a triangle and the color yellow.

I found this great seahorse cut on the Art Nouveau cartridge and decided to use it as it form a natural triangle. It was cut at 4" using a variety of solid color papers from my stash (most were scraps). I cut the triangle by measure and marking where it would fit under the shape. I decided to round the corners of the triangle to give it a bit more of a subtle shape. The background patterned paper is from a Martha Stewart pad I got several years ago. There are Stickles on the seahorse and seaweed. The pearls and bubbles are stash items and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. 

I like the way it turned out, but it may have been better to put another solid mat behind the patterned paper. I'm not sure, what do you think?


  1. This is great, I really like how you incorporated the triangle!!

  2. I think this turned out great! The seahorse image fits inside the triangle perfectly!

  3. Great take on the challenge! You're layout is awesome!
