I'm on a bit of a roll here now with the old blogs. I'm in the midst of taking that Stacy Julian Finding Photo Freedom class over at BPS (see my sidebar for the clickable logo if you want), and it has forced me to organize my art photos into their little folders on my hard drive. Apparently, getting organized does wonders for my blogging!
I actually spent some time making an atc and a greeting card using the Herringbone Technique that I learned in my Technique Junkies newsletter. This uses strips of paper to form a pattern (like you might see with wood floor planks), and is a great way to use color-coordinated paper scraps.
I think this technique makes a great look with coordinated colors. I want to try it next time with not-so-coordinated papers, and see how that looks. I now know that I can always cover it with inks or paints if the look ain't so hot. winkwink
