CPC July Reveal: Colorforms!


Supplies: red cardstock from Wausau Paper; yellow cardstock from Echo Park; all other cardstock from Bazzill; fussy-cut hexagon paper from American Crafts; blue alphabet stickers from Bella Blvd; red alphabet stickers & accompanying yellow dot from Lily Bee; all other stickers from October Afternoon; tape from 3M/Scotch; pen from Zig; rhinestones from Dee's Place; household paper clips.

Listen up, scrap-saving ladies.  This month's prompt at Child's Play Challenges is PERFECT for using up some of those scraps that you've saved [hoarded].  :) We are making layouts inspired by Colorforms, those repositionable cling-plastic shapes.  A variety of Coloforms sets, featuring all sorts of popular cartoon characters, have been issued over the years.  But we are using the original set, which consists of geometric shapes in a rainbow of colors.


Inspired by the black background and the colorful shapes of Colorforms, I created this layout.  Entitled "No Hard Feelings, Friend," it shows my son demonstrating self defense moves in order to earn a new belt in kung fu class.  For more inspiration, please check out what the rest if the design team has done at Child's Play Challenges.
