Pattern Play Day 1 Continued...


I loved yesterday so much that I haven't even moved on to today's lessons yet!!  I wanted to try another of the techniques described in the class.  This essentially is a paper piecing project with concentric hexagons.  I liked popping the layers up, but I wasn't really excited about the idea of my card being almost an inch thick, and the foam adhesive I grabbed was pretty thick.  (I fully admit the element of laziness in first trying this method before going to search for thinner pop dots!!)  Anyway, I just really liked the way it turned out, so I just popped up every other layer.

To get the layers lined up, I adhered the outer layer to my card base and then placed (but did not adhere) the outermost hexagon ring.  I adhered down the next one in and peeled off the one I had placed.  Then I popped up the remaining two layers and added a banner.  The muted palate made me think of a wedding, so I made them wedding cards. 

The supplies I used as as follows:  The dies are Spellbinders, the paper is Authentique (Fresh), the sentiment stamp is Simon Says Stamp, and the ink is Close To My Heart.

Hope you enjoy!!
