More........Hexagon Love

I had an idea the other night.......what if I.......punched a zillion hexagons out of cream colored cardstock, and layered them on cream colored cardstock and then added some patterned paper!  Wouldn't that make a super cool background.

Well yes, I think it would.  Yes, it'll also take a long time.  Yes, it'll also take a lot of patience.  Yes, it'll also take a fair bit of glue and dexterity and what if you don't like the result?  Well, never mind that, give it a go.  After all, you just bought those yummy Creative Memories Hexagon punches and you must use them!

Hmmm, lots of punching later.  Now it's time to find a photo.  The truth is, I had no prior plan of what photo to use, but I did think that since I was going to fit together all those shapes a page about my hubs and I was appropriate and how we fit together just right.

Here is the end result.


I am in love, I admit.  I almost want to do it again with another color.  But it may lose the impact.




This page is made primarily from the Daydream Believer kit over at Studio Calico.  I added some bits from some of the add-ons as well but I am afraid those are all sold out.

I punched the hexagons from 1 2/3 sheets of vanilla card-stock by American Crafts.  Then I cut a few shapes from some of the patterned papers in the kit.  Then it was just all about laying them all down.  I started in the center, added adhesive only to the centers so that the edges would lift a bit.

After that, I put together the photo section and laid it down.  Then it was all about choosing some spots to stitch and adding that detail.  I had some idea of stitching every single hexagon, but I laid down till that particular urge was long gone.

All that texture makes me happy.  I wonder what other shapes I can do this with???

Have a great weekend friends.
