This month we were challenged to be inspired by a Farmer's Market!
|Farmers' Market Challenge: get inspired by the displays, colours, textures, produce and all over feel of the place.|
Now I currently don't live near very many Farmer's Markets, but I've been lucky enough to have visited plenty when we lived elsewhere and while holidaying in France. The sights, smells and yummy produce are memories I will never forget. For some strange reason when I think of a Farmer's Market I instantly think of blue, red and yellow ... no idea why, I just do! Along with worn wooded boxes, awnings and plenty of bunting.
Here is my Farmer's Market inspired layout with a photo of The Thinker's 2nd Birthday way back in 2000!
I wanted a distressed/rustic blue background so I grabbed a white piece of textured Bazzill and inked the edges with Memento 'Paris Dusk'. When used this way I find Memento comes out lighter than when you stamp with it. I used more goodies from my swap package and I just couldn't resist the cherry washi tape, what would a Farmer's Market be like without cherries! I counterfeited the mini flag using the ones made by Jennifer Grace as inspiration, I love the seed bead on the top!
The full blog hop list will be published on the CKCB so if you get lost along the way, head over there to find your way back onto the hop.
I love to read your comments so feel free to say "hi" and happy hopping!
