Check out Julia's great video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IjmmEE5WmjU
I used a different paper selection than Julia did but kept the In Color since it's a great way to introduce those beautiful hues. Also, I love that this technique lets us use scraps we would otherwise throw away. Three layers of Designer Series Paper (DSP) strips cut to 3 x 1/2 are all over my stamp room - how about you?
The Venetian Romance paper is a new purchase for me. I wasn't sold by the sample in the catalog but then saw it on a display board at Convention and realized that it was EXACTLY what my collection of DSP (and it is really a collection at this point, or a hoard situation) needed.
Here is a close up of this beautiful technique. I love this paper and the pattern really pops when you are using those small pieces of it. Don't judge that some of my words are upside-down. I'd like to say I did that on purpose but that would be a little fib....
