#Stacked Bijou Challenge

Of course the week I am determined to get back in the swing of doing challenges, the challenge is so INVOLVED. This week, guest blogger (for I am the diva) Jane Reiter, CZT, offered a “Stacked Bijou” challenge in which we use mat board, in successive sizes, stacked beneath a Bijou (2×2″) tile:  3”, 4” 5”, 6”, and 7” squares.



I started with a simple hashtag for my Bijou tile using Fandance, Shattuck, Diva Dance and Bask-it in black and sepia, then extended the sepia/warm/fall palette with the mats. Tangles used on those include Umbra, Lezy, Henna Drum, Trimmed, and Looby Loo.

Nothing like jumping back in when the water’s hot! Had more fun than I expected cutting these to size and tangling the borders. Thanks, Jane!


I encourage and appreciate sharing!:

    I agree with the lovely Yorkshire Tortoise. The light touch on the last border sets off the whole. Your hashtag wants to jump from the screen.
