Lesson 3 from Mary's class that I am taking is all about the use of pattern. It can be overwhelming and I must admit at first I went way overboard on this one.
I finally scaled back and came up with a pretty good 8 1/4 by 6 1/2 wall hanging just in time for Christmas. It uses old and new items - all paper but the ribbon.I'm really flexing my creative muscles these days - and get lots of encouragement from folks like Lenna (go check her wonderful stuff - thanks my friend). The classes have been really great - you really have to be a putz to mess up. If you want to see more check out some samples that Mary posted (I blush to say I am one of them). Enjoy, Jewels.
