Helen's First Monochromatic Tic Tac Toe Project.

Welcome back to my blog, where today I'm sharing a project for 
Scrap Matrix.

The challenge is to create a project using a tic tac toe monochromatic theme.
For those of you who have not come across this before, the idea is to use any three objects from the grid, but they must be in a straight line horizontally, vertically or even diagonally. You may use any monochromatic colours you like.

A closer look.

Some of the texture details.

Thanks for your visit today. 
I hope you've found something to inspire you and will be tempted 
to play along at the Scrap Matrix Tic Tac Toe challenge.
