Dictionary Challenge - T
I'm quick out of the starting blocks for this fortnight's challenge on the Craft Barn blog where the letter is 'T'. I was having a bit of a tidy-up of my craft stuff (or 'junk' as the rest of my family refer to it) and came across some large sheets of coloured metallic card which were pre-cut into various shapes. It was supposed to be a mathematical aid for pupils but how or why I came to be in possession of it is a mystery. I spent a while popping all the shapes out and sorted them into small boxes making a mental note to myself to try and make use of them sometime. Today is that time!
Tessellate is a word that fascinates me as I went through school without ever having heard it and it was only when my sons were at school that I learnt what it meant. I used some chevron shapes and some triangles to fill my page but although brightly coloured they looked a bit flat so I decided to emboss the chevrons for added texture.
That's about it really. Have a good fortnight!
