When I was talking to my sister the other day she mentioned her grandson starting soccer, and then I saw a post on facebook and thought I should go with a soccer theme for his birthday but going through all my stuff I didn't have one thing soccer related, so I decided to try and make my own. I started with a circle die cut, then I cut little Hexagons from a die and started gluing them to the circle, when I had the circle filled I cut around the circle to cut off all the extra I had hanging off. Ok now I had a ball, (not quite the shape in an actual soccer ball but if you don't look close enough it could pass, well hopefully) but what to do now. Then I came up with an idea to put in a soccer field and goal. The same sister had given me some netting fabric awhile ago, so I got that out and cut a frame using rectangle dies, glued the netting to the back but cut off the base, it made it look to much like a rectangle and not a goal. I used Distress inks to make my background. As you can tell he is turning 13 this year :)
I hope he liked it as much as I liked how it turned out :)
This side view shows the netting a little better.
