WHERE DID THE IDEA COME FROM? | Pinterest
Now a few of my friends thought I must have taken up cake decorating because my Pinterest account has been flooded with pictures of gorgeous decorated cakes lately and yes, I like to decorate cakes when I get the chance, however I actually pinned them because I saw more than just a cake! Take this gorgeous summery cake with its ombre approach to the way the colours are used. YUM! I knew I had to use this on a layout but just didn't quite know when or how until now. So there you have it... the inspiration, the picture that sparked the idea.

TECHNIQUE | The triangles are all punched and positioned on the page piece by piece so there's a very good reason why I've used the grid style patterned paper from Doodlebug... it's so I could keep my triangles uniform. Doodlebug have recently added coloured card-stock to their product list and the variety of shades in each colour was perfect to create the ombre look that I was after.
I didn't want to detract from the colour panel on the layout so kept the typography neutral by using black and grey. The little pink flower and the pink washi tape were to mimmick the effect of the pink flower on the cake.
So there you have it... my new approach to putting it all out there and letting you know WHERE/WHY/HOW my ideas start and work there way onto paper.
