I used two of the handmade yo-yo posies you can find in my Etsy shop, Precocious Paper, here. I didn't stop there with the fabric, though.
First, I used acid-free spray adhesive to coat a spare piece of cardstock. Next, I placed a scrap of fabric lightly on the cardstock. As I pressed the fabric into the adhesive, I pleated, wrinkled and crinkled the fabric. I let it set for a few minutes then cut the landscape shape with a pair of scissors, trimming it to the size of my card. I love the dimension the little wrinkles give the background, as well as the texure of the fabric.
Today is the first day of a free online class called "Creativity Bootcamp". I opted to use an ivory-colored cardstock because the word of the day is "ivory". At first I reached for kraft, but I'm glad I went with ivory :). I think my hand-doodling and handwriting pops more that way. I have no idea what to expect from this course, but I do always enjoy hearing other people's perspective on being creative, and I hope to learn a lot about myself and be inspired in the next two weeks.
I hope your weekend was fabulous! Tessa
