It seems like just about every project, in whatever genre, leaves leftovers, and I’m always reluctant to get rid of those little leftover bits, even when it would be easy to.
So that was in part the inspiration for today’s project, using some of those bits in a creative way on something that doesn’t look left over.
Gather some little bits — or big bits — of paper.
Start putting them together in different ways.
Arrange, rearrange, add.
Don’t think too much. Let it happen as it happens.
One of my pieces actually tore more as I was trying to glue it.
You can keep adding to it indefinitely, layering on and on.
Use this as a background for drawing, or just leave it as it is.
This would also be an interesting way to embellish a plain greeting card, or make a big sheet and use it as wrapping paper. Whatever you want to do.
If you try this I’d love to hear about it and see your results. And now that we are at 100 posts, I’d love to know if you’ve completed any of the challenges or what you think of the series so far — almost a third of the way in!
