My Mind's Eye for Scrap Therapy

I know, I know, I cant get enough of them lately! :roll:
But totally in my defense :oops: ... I'm ENABLED! :shock:
My Mind's Eye's 'Follow Your Heart' is RIDDLED with them!!! :lol:

Check out this background paper. I actually cut out a few of the little hexagons from under the photo (so you cant see where! :wink: ) and then mounted them to make the pattern larger and to add depth :wink:

Here's some close-ups


Here's another hexagon 'Follow Your Heart' LO...
I love a gingham! Click on that background paper here (reverse side)

I started to cut some of the really patterny hexagons to see what might come of it (yeah its one of those....goodness knows how this will turn out LO's :roll: )

Then I thought I'd like to just leave the really pale coloured hexagons in which left a fairly skeletal template to stick down. Even after this pic.. the blue hexagons had to go!
(this 'blue' paper is sold out, but the 'pink' one can be found here)

And yeah, I know, I know, there's quite a bit of fussing cutting... but hey, I've got a fabulous stack of hexagons ready to use!!  LOL - can I see you rolling your eyes??  hee hee
