Shopping Our Stash - Bargello Technique (Paper Strips)

Hello, Crafty Peeps!

Wow!  It really feels like forever since I created a card.  Over at Shopping Our Stash, Chris came up with the wonderful idea to create cards using the Bargello Technique.   Bargello was actually created as a quick way to design beautiful quilt patterns. Of course, paper crafters adopted the technique. We would love to see your creative interpretations. I am sure this will become a frequently used technique in my studio. I have ideas!

My Art Deco Bargello
In the true spirit of the Shopping Our Stash challenge model, I only used products that have been in my stash for 3 months or more.  

My Mind's Eye "Nostalgia" 6"x6" Pad:  This pad is almost over two years old.  I ordered tons when Crafty Steals had them on sale for $2.99 each.  Ribbons:  These are both at least 5 years old.   I just buy ribbon because it is pretty!  Cardstock:  Ancient!  I mean more than 11 years old.

Eileen Hull hosted a live Facebook class on this technique about three months ago. This was a practice piece and has been on my board just waiting for the right project!

I added a couple strips of my design paper to the edge of the inside writing page.   I am thinking of adding a stamped image before sending this off!
Not Much of A Tutorial
but you should get the general idea!
These are so much fun to create!

Use spray mists to create your splatter sheet (Mist both sides.)
Cut your flower petals!  I used Sizzix®, Bigz™Die 
"Eileen Hull® Flower Layers with Heart Petals
Add your doodle and then layer your flower!
 I chose to doodle hearts but you can summon up your "Zentangle™" spirit and doodle whatever you wish!
