"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?" by Marianne Williamson

Swirls

I recently had a customer ask me if I could make my paper look like ice cream - with swirls. I had never tried anything like that before so it gave me a chance to play!
First I pulled some light pink sheets, then swirled in a darker shade by hand...

Not too bad...


Then I cut out a template to use to get more uniform swirls...



Then I thought, "Well hey, I have the template, let make just swirls."


I had a great time with the templates and decided to make more so now I have:

stars, Christmas trees, Christmas stockings, hearts, a butterfly, flowers and circles!!!
