Inspired by Chelsea Edwards: Day 2, or How to Cheat at Collage

To see Chelsea's original card that inspired this series of cards with little collages surrounded by white space, please visit yesterday's post.

The Basic Gray Indian Summer paper has several sheets that are complex with layered images, bright colors, and fun shapes. . No work needed, other than to select an area of the designer paper that looks particularly appealing.




How much easier can it get? Not much. Yet it's pretty. Simple. Quick. Easy to mass produce, if you go in for that sort of thing.

Today's post was a cheat, but tomorrow's post will show a LOT more work.

Which, let's face it, isn't hard to do given how little work went into the above card.

Seriously.

  7. Susan, you are on a roll, solving my designer paper problems! Keep it up, please! In those 6x6 pads I mentioned yesterday are some "scene" pages. I never know what to do with them. I hesitate to cut them up or cover them up with layers or sentiments. This idea works perfectly. I could probably get three or four cards out of one sheet! Love your card, especially the colors and dark twine. Thanks again!
