The other day I had a bunch of paper scraps out on my art journaling table. I was playing with my templates, and I just started putting down modeling paste on 4 different scraps. Some of the scraps I was able to cut to a nice usable size, and another had a chunk of paper missing. Here you can see two of the scraps:
Of course, I didn't want to waste these scraps so I have made 3 cards out of the 4 scraps thus far. I decided to share the card today that I created using the paper with the chunk missing. I solved the problem of the missing paper by wrapping a doily around it. I could have also covered it with embellishments, other papers, etc., but I personally liked the wrapped doily.
Papers: Memory Box Butterfield and Brioche, Paper Trey Ink cs for notecard
Blue Fern Studios chipboard: Spring Iris Small (painted with Adirondack stream and citrus dabbers then topped with clear rock candy Distress Crackle Paint)
Embellishments: misc. free pattern printable; The Crafter's Workshop template with modeling paste; Prima Soubrette E flowers; doily from Hobby Lobby; roses and leaves from Wild Orchid Crafts; misc. jute; sewing machine
I also used the Blue Fern Studios Spring Iris Small. This particular piece of chipboard goes so well with a cluster of flowers! Now, I think you can still see a bit of the "chunk of missing paper"; however, I think it just looks like the center of the doily. Such a great way to use up scraps.
And now for our RAK winner of the two new Crafter's Workshop templates:
Creative Genie said... Love templates. Sorry to say I don't use them nearly often enough -- because I don't like the way I store them and find it too cumbersome to get them out. Sad, really sad. Love your great ideas! Christine MAY 31, 2013 AT 2:57 PM
Congrats Christine. Please e-mail me your address so that I can get these off to you!
Thank you all for stopping by, and I hope you enjoyed today's tip and creation! Blessings,
