woven & wild {lawn fawn inspiration week}

woven & wild

I love lawn fawn inspiration week!  Today, we're highlighting "critters on the savanna" and I thought I'd do a softer take on the set.

woven & wild

I cut strips of off-white cardstock, sponged all of the edges, and wove them onto an aqua-colored-cardstock-mat.  I left gaps so that the aqua would show through.  I then roughed up the edges for an added textural element.

Some aqua-colored grass and a colored-to-match giraffe still bring on the wild... but I think I just made my giraffe blush.  yeah I did.

I hope you like my softer take on this fun set!
