After our morning walk, I got the kit out and decided to experiment with all the paper bag cut outs I’d done last week. I had some ideas going through my head again, but sadly when I tried to put them into practice, it did not go as well as I’d envisioned.
My little paper posies looked exactly what they were, like someone had cut some wavy circles out of paper bags, and actually looked quite dreadful when I tried to arrange them in a group. The double sided tape did show through, but once the backing paper was removed, it wasn’t too bad. However, going by ‘less is more’ I decided to just use one at a time and see what happened.
I did the same with the butterflies and these were the results.
I had some pale blue fabric butterflies which looked quite nice resting on their paper counterparts, and the one top right has Just For You underneath.
I’d also cut out some birds from the stencil I’d already experimented with and put these together below. They too have some paper flowers in the design, though I added some bought trimmings as well.
You may also recall I was sent a thank you card and decided to recycle the butterflies, which I did today on a 7 x 7 card, the largest I have. I added some ribbon and I think this is my favourite one today.
For ages now I’ve had an idea that I hadn’t begun to explore yet, and nearly didn’t today either, but as I had everything out, I thought I’d give it a go. This one is completely made from scratch, including the coloured card itself.
It’s definitely different, and I think I can have some fun with this type of abstract design.
It’s been a good session today, and I’ve got a nice selection of Hello cards again.
