The idea behind the pinwheel pattern is to start with a large center photo. From there, add the same size photos on each side of that center photo and work your way out. Since I did not have a large number of photos, I added in square pieces of paper to fill in the page. I ended up with a long rectangular section in my pattern. Fortunately, I found chipboard words that fit perfectly. However, one of those words did not fit my color scheme so I altered it a little with ink.
One last note is my continuous and never ending battle with the alphabets I have on hand. My mission to use those alphabets is working but the stash doesn't seem to budge much! I have become somewhat an expert on altering letters to make them work. I did not have any of the letters I needed for my title - even when I changed the title a thousand times. (OK that is a little exaggeration but you get the point.) I settled on the "Too Cool" title and went to work. The "t" was originally and "f" - just trimmed the top. The "o's" were the inside sections left over from other letters like "g" and such. The "C" was a "Q" - again trimmed. Finally, the "l" was a "k" - again trimmed. I have learned that the letters look better if they are trimmed instead of trying to add a section to complete the letter needed.
In any case, squares are a great shape to use on your work. How creative can you be? I would love to see! Links are due at the end of November!
