Thank You Triangles

I don't spend a lot of time on Pinterest nor do I go searching for things to pin, but I do check it a few times a day.  One day I found a bunch of color inspiration boards and pinned them.  I took this one literally and was inspired by the triangle tiles as well as the color palette.

I took my triangle screen die-namics plate and ran it through my die cutting machine in each of the colors below.  Then I ran a piece of white cardstock, slightly smaller than the frame, through my Xyron adhesive machine and adhered the frame to my base.  After that was complete, I then started putting random colors in the empty holes.The white frame with random pops of color is what makes this look so similar to the inspiration photo.  I did find out the hard way that each one of those tiny triangles goes in the hole a certain way.  If you try and make it fit the wrong direction, it will look horrible.  Ask me how I know.  ;)


I am absolutely in LOVE with the way this turned out!  What do you think?


Supplies:


I found this beautiful color inspiration board at Fresh Hues and was inspired to take it literally.
