Creating in Pairs : Andrew Roberts

It is my turn again here on the Scrapmatts blog. 
April is half way through and I have had a very creative time over the last few weeks.
I have been playing with some more Scrapmatts stencils and incorporating some wonderful chipboard.

As you may have noticed I have included the word pairs in my blog post title.
Have ever been creating and end up with left over die cuts, extra paint on your palette
or other materials where you may have over prepared.

What do you do? Do you just toss them out, save them and forget where you put them or
have a big collection that you have good intentions 
but never get around to using them.

My projects have ended a pigeon pair as I used up extra paint texture paste and 
embellishments that I had leftover from my first project for this month.

 I used a few Scrapmatts stencils which I am fast 
becoming addicted to. 
I forgot to say these two projects I have jumped out on a limb and gone really bright
you might need your sunglasses.

I used the following Scrapmatts products for this project :

CB1158 Butterflies 20
CB1024 Flowers 04
CB5106 Chevrons 01

I hope you gained some inspiration from my projects for April and will think about how you will your leftovers from other project in your next creation.

Cheers Andrew
