February make and takes

When I first started playing around with this Faux Pinwheel layout, it was hard to eyeball putting the larger squares of the pinwheel in place. On the back I ended up drawing a lot of lines from corner to corner trying to put the pieces evenly in place. It was too much work for one card. After putting it together I traced it and made a template to go by.

I am a big fan of Michelle Zindorff's blog. Some day I hope to go to one of her workshops on brayering. I've played around with brayering and would like to learn how to do it better. This card is from a tutorial on the direct to paper technique (an easier technique than brayering).

The 3rd card was using the same main stamp "Inspired by Nature" and was simpler to make.


Congradulations to Yvonne C for winning the Scallop border punch!
