Amy: Hexies...oh how I adore hexies! I cut the smaller hexagon pattern and layered it onto my jar die and did some simple stamping. The blue hexagon pattern is cut from a 12 x 12 sheet of paper. Actually both started as 12 x 12's. The love contrast of the sizes and colors.
Julie: I am FOREVER happy that hexagons came into the scrappy world and I HOPE.THEY.NEVER.LEAVE. ever ever ever!!!! I love love love them!! And every time a scrappy company releases some hexagons, I am ALL OVER IT!!!!! For my page, I love the denim background so much, I didn't want to lose that in my page, so I used hexagons as an accent on my page .... I cut these from a 12x12 sheet of My Minds Eye paper!
I adhered scrunched up wrapping tissue to the base of the 12 x 12 canvas, then adhered some leftover diecut letters [see top right]. Then I applied fiber paste with various stencils. When that dried, I played around with paint colours and dabbed with wet rag to make sure the paint got into the grooves to define the patterns on the base. Then a bloom and some swirl rub-ons and I have a lovely display piece! :)
