Once again, I marched to the beat of my own drum, and once again, made things a bit more complicated for myself, which is just part of my nature. Why go directly from Point A to B, when a detour to C, D, and E are available, too? While I love the 'idea' of diagonal lines (reinforced by the impressive number of entries that showcase them), my 'reality' is that mine would be crooked, possessing as I do one of those trimmers that leaves things just ever-so-slightly askew. Hmmm, maybe it's my perspective that's a bit wander-y... While rummaging through my stamp sets, looking for an alternative, I found a brand new hexagon stamp set - Sweet Shop Pattern Craze - that I cannot believe I'd forgotten about!! After debating whether or not to use it - given that hexagons appear to be 'out-dated' as far as trends go - I decided that, in style or not, these six-sided shapes deserved a play date.
The CAS(E) inspiration:
My diagonal hexagons with a couple of butterflies:
The little hexagons are from a die set of faux buttons. In hindsight, perhaps I should have kept with ones I stamped and fussy-cut from the set, but these are okay. Next time...because there's still a bunch of patterned hexagons to ink up!
Stash inventory needs to go on my "to do" list, as does inventory elsewhere, too. Clothes still with the price tags on them? Yep - time to shop my closet to see what's "new."
Thanks for dropping by, and please know that your comments are welcomed and appreciated, deeply.
