Mojo Monday #238

I saw this Mojo Monday sketch a couple of days ago and loved it. The squares are a perfect way to use up scrap patterned paper (which I love to do). But, it took me awhile to get to the sketch.

When I finally sat down to create, I found myself with a bit of crafters block….sometimes this happens to me. The sketch or idea seems awesome in my brain, but I just can’t make it work on paper.

Finally, I found the combination I was looking for and I’m quite happy with the result.

You’ll notice I changed the boxes a bit, offsetting them in a kind of quilt pattern instead of lining them up. I actually had this background sitting on my desk from quite awhile ago and just never found the right card to use it for. I was inspired by it after looking at this sketch, so the two (sketch and scrap) joined forces.
