So a few days ago, as I looked at my paper scrap pile that has accumulated over the past week or so, I thought about combining them together somehow. I think I read about this on some one's blog somewhere. I want to build a supply of patterns, colors, etc. so I have them available for using in other pieces, further altering, etc.
I cut a piece of 9"x 12" bristol board ( a favorite substrate) and started cutting, gluing, trimming, and finally doodling on. Here's the result. I will make color copies of this and use it in other pieces. I plan to try another one in the next few days, using paint and paper.
