I started this blog for a place I can CREATE, SHARE and INSPIRE other crafters. I am an Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator and exclusively use their products. I just LOVE how everything from the stamp set, punch, card stock, designer series paper, ribbon and accessories all coordinate! Stampin' Up! just gets me!
The ladies and I have some great projects using the "Bargello Technique".
If you were like me and scratching your head like "what?", I'll help you out.
I CASEd the following description of Bargello from Wikipedia.
Bargello is a word used in needlepoint embroidery, consisting of upright flat stitches laid in a mathematical pattern to create motifs. The name originates from a series of chairs found in the Bargello Palace in Florence, which have a "flame stitch" pattern.
We did not needlepoint our projects but used strips of paper to create an interesting pattern. That would have probably taken longer to make and I'm sure if I had absolutely nothing else to do I'd attempt it.
