Curls and scallops

Hello crafty friends. You know when you see a piece paper and instantly  oooh and ahhh over it? That was me with the scallop paper from Felicity Jane Sophie collection. I knew I wanted to fussy the scallops. Who doesn't like sitting on the couch with a coffee and a pair scissors, day dreaming while you cut? I've said it a few times, but its relaxing and very therapeutic. Perhaps not for the person watching you cut, but for the person with the scissors its great.

I laid the scallop down on the page, with absolute no direction at this point, other than use those scallops. I fiddle for a while. Got up and did some laundry, came back and then I had that 'lightbulb' moment. Lets cut them up individually. More fussy cutting. Why not? Another coffee, sure!

Then  I start layering them in no order at all. Oh, I love how it turned out.

I needed to keep my embellishments minimal (that was tricky for me) because the focus was the scallops.

Time to think about my next project. Fussy cutting perhaps?
