Have you noticed a pie-chart trend in the scrapbooking world recently? Several companies have new paper lines that incorporate these circular patterns. They reminded me of a quilt. Long before I discovered rubber stamps, I was a quilter. After my children were born, I discovered that all those quilt pins didn't work well when child-proofing my home for toddlers. So I put away the quilt frame and soon discovered rubber stamps.
As you can see from my work, I love vintage, and I also love geometric patterns. This Scrappy Paper Quilt that I designed with The Rubber Cafe' products, incorporates both of those beloved elements for a trendy new look.
4A. Next taking the 18th Proclamation Stamp, I stamped both the squares and the circles with distress ink.
Note: I love this stamp for this because it incorporates various fonts. Each circle and square will be unique will little effort on your part!
Glue the quarters onto the chipboard as shown and top the new quilt squares with a cut paper ring to make each one cohesive. Don't worry if it's not perfect. It's a quilt!
I framed mine in an inexpensive float form that I purchased from a discount store. It gave it more of a modern, gallery look.
