In today’s process video, I share a stashbusting idea for gems, such as flat-backed pearls, rhinestones, enamel dots, wood dots, or other kinds of bling. I’m also sharing a sketch for a horizontal 8 1/2 x 11 layout, which I’ve also converted to 12 x 12 in case that’s your preferred size. I’ve kept all the numbers nice and round. You’ll find pics of the sketches below the video!
If you’d prefer to not watch the video, the stashbusting idea involves filling a negative space chipboard piece with a pile of bling. Picture an hourglass with a pile of sparkly sand in the bottom. :) Just pile bling inside a negative space shape and see how much you can use up!
