Well, I'm supposed to be prepping for classes. Instead, I'm playing hooky.
It's that time of year when businesses give out calendars and day planners to customers. I liked a bank calendar.
It stands up and is rather sturdy. I have wanted to play with one of these for awhile. I really DID start preparing lesson plans, however, the cover on the calendar was such a lovely shade of turquoise blue.
Several rules for this stand up play book: fast (no hand stitching), small, and only tiny scraps from the scrap bag.
Out came the handy glue stick. Besides cottons, I found a few bits of brocades. I like the letters, so I left a few showing.
Then a meandering green line came out of the scrap bag, and a burgundy circle.
It strikes me that my mosaic designs influence this kind of play. The tile effect.
OK, I had my fun, now back to the lesson plans...
