Hybrid Thursday- pinwheels

Hi, its Hybrid Thursday and I have another hybrid layout for you!!

I have been having so much fun with Kiki's collaboration with Siamese Studios "Burst into Spring". It has the green and the pinks and lends itself to so many layouts. For this layout I printed out several of the papers that are in this collection, using a medium weight matte paper.


I made a pinwheel which is super easy and cute. Cut a square- I used 2 in and 1 1/2 inches, then I cut at each corner about 1/3 of the way to the center.


Since this is single sided paper, I sprayed glimmer mist on the white side.


Pinwheels are very easy to make. Just wrap alternating corners around a pencil so that it curls. I also used a heat gun which helped hold the curl- but be very careful- it is hot!!! I added buttons as centers.


Here are close ups of my pinwheels on the layout:



To finish the layout, I took a picture, uploaded it to my computer and added text to the layout. That is so easy and you don't have to worry about your handwriting if it isn't the best. I love that!!

Keep experimenting with the hybrid scrapbooking opens up so many new possibilities that even a die-hard traditional scrapbooker can see how the digital world enhances your layouts.
