Pinwheels!

Hey all!

I was super super excited for these pinwheel stickers when I saw them. They’re bright, colorful, and just say summer to me, so I wanted to use all of them at once, which ended up being a lot harder than it had to be. Somehow I remembered how people made curved pieces of paper to show off trees, and thought that the pinwheels would look nice that way too. I don’t have a circle cutter and had conveniently misplaced my Nestabilities, so I ended up cutting a lopsided one with a plate. (And it was my last piece of yellow polka dotted paper, too!) I couldn’t remake it even if i wanted to, so I just stuck it on and hoped for the best. And sure it is a little lopsided, but I love it!

Cardstock: Bazzill Basics; Patterned paper, stickers: Echo Park Paper; Silver accents: Michaels/Recollections; Stamp: Hero Arts; Ink: Colorbox Chalk.

I know this sounds weird, but I think the crafting world likes things perfect, even though things that are handmade aren’t perfect at all. I’d be the first to admit that I can’t make a card without my t-square or a ruler close by, and I certainly hate it when things aren’t perfectly straight, but after a while, I think it makes sense just to let go of perfectionism and just run with it. And I kind of like it that way (sometimes, okay, well actually rarely) :-)

See you Friday!

P.S.  I lied and found another Echo Park Paper card in my memory stick, so I’ll probably be sharing another one on Friday! Thanks for stopping by!
