I am always looking for ways to use my scraps so I dug out these 3/4" wide strips from my stash and decided to find a way to use them up. I cut these for making a patchwork layout for a journal class a few years ago, then for a log cabin patchwork for a cardmaking class and used a few more for paper beads for another class. They are sorted by colour so I picked green and pink - my favorite combination - and glued them end to end then side by side on an 8.5" x 11 scrap of used printer paper which was sitting by the printer. Once dry, I cut it into quarters and stamped two of them with pink ink and the other two with green ink using a newspaper column background stamp (IO). I cut one of the green quarters into two and started cardmaking!!
Two cards ready to go for the new year!! That leaves me three full quarter sheets of this collage to play with later on and the possibility of creating another six cards with this collage which I created out of scraps!! I like the artsy and unique look I get when I create these collages for my cards.
