He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.
I had seen a new
paper in a "sneak peek" that I thought could be forged using triangles.
Then could I locate it???
Of course not - bleh! :~(
Wait a minute! (you are saying)
Those aren't ... TRIANGLES!
Fooled ya for a minute there!
I cut my 6x6" striped paper into 1 inch strips & those into 1 inch squares.
These were then hand cut diagonally in half, but it became a little trickier than you might think...
Half of the squares in each strip had to be diagonally cut with the stripes vertical & half with the stripes horizontal in order for the colors & pattern to match up. I found it simpler to just lay them all out before I cut the diagonal from the bottom right to the top left.
72 triangles later (!) I got the patterned squares laid out & married with adhesive photo squares. When I started scrapping these were my go to adhesive choice, although I graduated long ago to a tape runner. I still use the squares frequently in a number of applications where they simply make sense, especially to adhere original vintage photos that I could possibly want to remove later.
Here again is the finished page:
I used some fun polka dot washi tape from my kit to cover the chipboard
camera & frame and to adhere the birthday cake card from Pretty Little Studio.
They have adorable vintage stuff including digi versions!
It was rather hard to cover up those squares, lol, after all that work!
Mounted on a medium grey Bazzill textured cardstock I love how they pop off the page.
Now hop on to the rest of the inspiring creations!
