Taking part in some stash busting fun in Scraptember.
I don't use as much patterned paper as I'd like. I'd like to use as much as I buy... but that might be wishful thinking!! Anyway, that thought led me to draw up this sketch.
I went through my yellow/green and mint/blue paper boxes and pulled out a stack of papers. I arranged them in colour order and cropped them all to squares. I thought I was going to be super accurate but that didn't happen. They are roughly 12mm larger each time but after the third one I just started eyeballing it. In the sketch the squares are rotated 22.5 degrees each time; on my layout I just turned it "a bit".
Once I'd got my twisted stack complete I pondered what else needed adding. I really don't know... enamel dots? A title? Journalling? In the end I went with a tiny tab with his initial on it. I'm intrigued to see if anyone else plays along with this sketch and how they choose to embellish it. I did add some gold paint splatters and then called it finished.
It's a bit of a chunky monkey. I'm always surprised at how much paper weighs! But I do like the overall effect and I'm very pleased to have used a good wadge of paper on one layout.
Here's the process video:
