scrappy day

Barb posted a tutorial by Thermoweb on how to use scraps efficiently. I grabbed a handful of green scraps and threw together some strips of the papers.  These new striped papers were the basis of all the ideas in the tutorial. 

I used some of the striped pages to make waves like you see in the top card.  I wish I had the CM wave cutter- it would have looked even better.  I lined the wave with dots, added paper flowers by MM, and adhered a sentiment flag to finish off the top card. 

For this card, I used a Bargello technique.   Thinner strips would have looked better.  I had trouble with certain strips not having enough adhesive.  Make sure you use more than you see in the picture in the tutorial, or your pieces will fall off when you cut your new paper apart.
