A technique to use up scraps.

I was machining yesterday when I came up with the idea of using up my small strips of paper and card.I save them all!
In a random order I sewed them to white cardstock,following a colour theme.In this case it was purple but you could use random brights.Then I tore each side of the strips to create the effect.
I matted a photo on cream so it would stand out and chose black for the title."Torn" came to mind...the song by Natalie Imbruglia  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VV1XWJN3nJo
The photo was taken at Broken Hill airport when I was saying farewell to the Purplescraps girls at the end of a recent retreat.So in a way I was torn away from there.Total cost of this layout was 10c  for the photo! Try it you'll like it..Happy scrapping from .Julene aka Joolz
