I love blurfing. I like to see what my fellow crafty peeps are up to, and what challenges they've found that I can also play. One of my fellow SOS DT gals, One Crafty Mama, was in my Reader even before she came on board at SOS, so I knew we'd get along splendidly. *waves*
Last weekend she alerted us to a WCMD challenge that involved sketches, so even though it was past the linking deadline, I still wanted to play. A sketch is a sketch, right? Here is her post, which links to the sketches here. Are you lost yet? Do you see why blurfing is a tough job? You can get lost if you're not careful.
Here's the sketch I used:
So I had this idea. Instead of using individual squares like a normal person, I decided I could weave paper and get the same effect. This is what happened:
What we have here is a failure to do basic math. If you think for one second there is no math in stamping and paper crafting, you are very, very mistaken. I cut strips of my precious Lawn Fawn paper into 3/4" widths, then cut those into 2 1/4" lengths (3 x 3/4 = 2 1/4). Unfortunately, when you weave paper (or anything, really), it takes up some of the length, so you are left with a too-short piece. I started over three times, and I used up a lot of my pretty green brick paper. I was sad. I then switched papers, cut them a little longer, and made this:
In hindsight, maybe a 3/4" square punch might have been easier, but I'm a rebel, and I needed to at least try my idea to see if it was worth it. The jury is still out.
In other news, I'm back at work today. I've left my sick bed and ventured out into the real world. Let's hope I survive. If I do, I shall be rewarded with a massssssaaaaage at day's end. I win. :D
Thanks for stopping by!
