Papertrey Ink Blog Hop - April


Welcome to the April edition of the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. Here is the challenge:
It only takes a little *something* to take a project from ho-hum to amazing!  Even something as small as tilting your images or sentiments at an angle can have a huge impact.  This month we are challenging you to create a project that features something tilted.  Position a frame at an angle, tilt your text, add a background strip diagonally, create a border that has an incline, slant a sentiment block, the sky is truly the limit! 

And here is what I created for it:

I masked off a square and used Faux Ribbon to create the diagonal lines. Then I used my square punch and my trimmer to make this "polaroid style" window. I added some bits and bobs from my basket of leftover goodies (the butterfly and leaf sprig), and then used a sentiment from Butterfly Dreams to top it off. It kind of looks like a window to me with the blue and yellow "rays" in the "window".
