I don’t know if you’ve seen any peeks of this new CHA collection over on the Little Yellow Bicycle blog, but this is a beautiful new line. Paradise is a wonderful mix of teal, cream, brown and olive with a pop of magenta. You can see the color mix here in this photo of the collection’s flower kit.
Although the collection name recalls a tropical locale, the colors and patterns are versatile enough to work with just about anything. When I got my box of goodies, the first thing that caught my eye was the colorful plaid patterned paper. I’m mad for plaid! The colors reminded me of madras pants that golfers wear and I knew immediately that I would make a page about my own little golfer.
I used the plaid as the base for my page. On top, I used the pretty cream "B" side of one paper and stitched a border strip to the teal paper to make a large block. Then I added another patterned paper as my photo mat.
Once I had the patterned paper and photo in place, I began to embellish the page. LYB makes it easy because each line has so many terrific embellishments. I started above the photo with the golf banner, chipboard clouds and some word stickers.
To finish the page, I made a trio of flags to mimic pennants on the putting greens. The flags are from the collection’s Fabric Favorites and were already on pop-dots. I just added decorative toothpicks to make the flagpoles.
