Layout for 123 Get Scrappy July challenge: Hello Friend

Hello and Happy Friday,

Bit over two years ago I got happy mail from Melina telling me that I had been accepted to a new challenge design team, 123 Get Scrappy. Playing with the monthly challenge grids has been so much fun, but most of all it has been amazing to get to know Melina and the other lovely girls in the team. Hosting a challenge blog is a lot of work and I can fully support Melina in her decision to close the challenge blog and to allocate more time on her own projects and personal life matters. We'll anyway stay in touch, don't we!

Last 123 Get Scrappy challenge has been revealed, and the design team has made beautiful layouts for your inspiration. Just follow this link to see them all!

Even if this is the last challenge we all wish that there were as many participants as possible taking the challenge! And here's the grid for you:

I chose the diagonal row: The word HELLO - Grey background - Ribbon
And here's my finished layout:

Grey background paper is from SODAlicious collection. I covered the middle area with a a layer of white gesso and added some yellow and brown mists. Even if the background pattern was a bit busy to start with I used a sheet of another triangle patterned paper for bringing more colour onto my project. Using a craft knife I cut out half of the triangles, and glued the triangle grid on the misted background. I think it worked out pretty well!

The photo of my son and the wooden fox is from last week when we visited the Helsinki zoo together. Close to the zoo entrance there's a fox couple made of wood, and my kids just love those statues. We never pass them without making a short stop to say hello! lol!

Wishing you a nice weekend, and hoping to see many entries for our final challenge #24!
