2 sheets of patterned paper = 4 projects


One of the ways I try to maximize my art therapy time is to work on several projects in one seating. Like if I have my hot glue gun and pretty embellishments out, I will make a few tags and mixed media canvases. I incorporate different elements to make them distinct but if you are really observant, you can tell which projects were actually done in one seating. [Clue: When I'm obsessed with an embellishment, I will use it over several projects till I get it out of my system or till I run out of it...*LOL*]

I think it speeds up efficiency because you are "in the zone". *winks* Here are the four projects I did in one seating using two sheets of patterned paper of the same design. 

Life-is-an-advemture

I love the graphic print of this We R Memory Keepers patterned paper which I got from my Xyron design team stint. It was the perfect backdrop for my fun photos. One patterned paper used up! :)


Spring-coffee-tag

Next I made a tag. I needed to use spring colours so I added some pink and yellow.

Then I thought the patterned paper would look nice covering a sturdy box.

The-decorated-paper-bag

Of course, the pretty gift box needed a matching gift bag so I recycled an old paper bag.

There you have it, 2 sheets of patterned paper = 4 different projects in one seating!
