IN PIECES

I have been enamored of Serendipity Paper for a long time now. Depending on the techniques
you use to create your master sheet of Serendipity Paper, it can take quite awhile. As in maybe an hour and a half or even longer. But, from there, it is pure magic!

This afternoon -- a snowy, blizzardy day -- I took advantage of the time to go into my workshop and create -- SERENDIPITY PAPER!


I know, I know. Not too impressive-looking, right? 

B U T . . . when you cut it into pieces, it becomes a plethora of miniature works of art. 
Each and every one is unique. These tiny masterpieces can be used for several projects. 
The possibilities are many!

However, I decided to show you what they look like on a card. I cut the first 2 1/2 inches 
of my Serendipity Paper into 1 1/4" squares. I chose four of the squares that complemented 
each other, and this is what I came up with for a finished product:



Now, my question is this: Would you like me to write a blog post telling you step-by-step 
how I created this particular piece of Serendipity Paper? I took photos of my progress as 
I created, and I would be happy to share it all with you -- if you're interested. Let me know.

  3. The layers are great and you cutting it to bite-sized snips made the design reallly pop. I wouldnot have picked out that paper as a whole because of the busy of it..but NOW...well it is wonderful. The colors you used would be perfect too. Awesome job!
