Chintz Pinwheel



I love this pinwheel technique from the August/September 2010 issue of Technique Junkies. It's really easy to put together as long as you have the right measurments. I added an acrylic snowflake dabbed with some cream paint to emphasize the wintery feeling.

The background is a piece of Basic Grey white-ish paper stamped with the Vintage Chintz backgrounder. Love this backgrounder for subtle and vintage-y applications. I tried to add ribbon, but it just didn't look right, so I left it off. This way the pinwheel really takes center stage.

I'm still working on tons of other DT projects, so that is keeping me busy here in the studio. Come on back here on Wednesday for the big "Baby and Wedding Showers" blog hop from Creative Cuts and More. You will love all these wonderful ideas we have in store for you. :-)
