Made for Each Other...

I was playing around with my new Angel Company Sneak Peek catalog sets and discovered something really cool! One of the flourishes from the Curls & Swirls set and the largest bird from the Deco Designs set are made for each other!

If you are a fan of the Deco Designs set (which I think is so cool & trendy!!) you NEED the Curls & Swirls set!! (wink, wink!!)

Look at this:


The tail of the bird matches the design of the swirls so well, even down to the dots!! You could do so many fun things using these two sets together. Here is an example:

The great thing about this project is that it took me about 5 minutes to put the whole thing together. It was super simple but has a great effect! This one is on a paper coaster (like what you put your drinks on when you go to Chilis or other restaurants) and you can put a magnet on the back and hang it on your fridge or a file cabinet. You could also attach ribbon at the top and hang it from a shelf or peg. You could easily turn this into a card or use it for decoration on a scrapbook page!

The colored dots on the paper & the flowers on the bird are made using Souffle Pens (also pictured). I know that I've said this before but I LOVE these things!! They are a MUST have for me! They work so well on dark paper and can add so much visual interest to a project!
The sentiment is stamped with the TAC Sneak Peak set "More Abundance" which is another great one for cards or scrapbook pages.
I hope that you enjoyed this project and that you all have a nice weekend!
