Hi October Afternoon fans! Nicole here on Technique Thursday. If you're like me, you don't do very many "artsy" techniques but you love to play with paper. I wanted to encourage you to reach for a favorite tool instead, and for me that would be my corner rounder!
Raise your hand if you can't bear to toss away a piece of pretty paper. (Mine is raised, LOL). Instead of hoarding them, grab your corner rounder and go to town! Here's the file I started with:
You can see no piece is safe, even some of the Miscellany ephemera fell victim to my beloved corner rounder.
Next, just start layering them on top of one another ... allow yourself to cover up bits and pieces. I played around with mine for a bit, and once I found a formula I was happy with I just grabbed my tape runner and got to work. Here is the finished result:
I know, I know ... my sweet Grandpa is distracting because he's so dang cute, right?!
After adding the photo of him, plus some journaling about our day trip for ice cream, all I needed was to add some Tidbits and Doo-Dads around the edges to finish things up.
Notice I also rounded the corners of the grey cardstock to kind of tie it all in together.
In addition, I managed to sneak in a few stamped phrases from the Everyday Roller that is part of the new and soon-to-be-released Daily Flash Program ... that one is most likely going to end up on every project I make for a very long time.
The next time you're stuck with a bunch of "leftovers," make sure you get a'round' to using them by layering them all together!
