...that was the question this afternoon. Riffling through the scrap box where everything ever cut off or trimmed down goes is a major occupation for me at the start of any project. I'm looking for flashes of colour that I can instantly add moments of interest with, then I can build around these spontanious responses to fashion a piece which is more coherant. Today I just had enough though. The box was too full and not really working as an inspirational palette. Time for throwing the scraps on the scrap heap! Of course not everything went... I still spotted a few gems worth keeping. It's the first time in 3 years that I've had a clear out so it was a joy to bin so much. At first I had a pang of worry that I'd have nothing left to work with but most all of the good bits had gone anyway and I figure I'll just have to create some more scraps to choose from!
The last of the usable bits are scattered here as I'm looking to start a new journal cover.
