As I've mentioned, I am enrolled in Shimelle Laine's online class "Pretty Paper Party." The main thrust is supposed to be using the papers you love too much to cut into. I don't know how it happened, but I don't think I've actually cut anything yet. One of the first prompts had us diving into our scraps. That resulted in these three cards. I guess I just feel more comfortable with cards. Also they are 4.25x5.5". How hard is it to cover that? A lot easier than covering a whole 12 x 12" page!
Plus I decided to make a scrapbook for my sister, but 1) I don't have many photos for it and 2) I kind of want to leave the journaling to her. Do you know how boring scrapbook pages are without photos or writing? Plus, I am not that good at adding embellishments. I use too few, and I forget about the design-triangle thing.
One of the recent prompts involved paper piecing with an example that featured a bunch of punched butterflies. It gave me the idea to go to my favorite punch. (Sadly it broke.) Still, I got a number of flowers out of it. I stuck with a sort of dusty palette. I really love how it came out. Now to try it on a scrapbook page.
Well, now to try any of the ideas on a scrapbook page...
