I made the fifth and last of this spring and summer’s scrap series out of the pastel scraps that were left when I finished the fourth one.
plus black, grey and white scraps.
‘Reading’ from right to left you can pick out two different sets of repeating stripes. One set is the alternating one and two-row pastel stripes, which are in ‘rainbow’ order: blue/purple/pink/peach/yellow/green. Twice I threw in some aqua and second shades of purple and pink.
The second set falls between the pastel stripes – single row neutrals, which go from black through two or three shades of grey to white.
I really had no idea whether this crazy scheme was going to come out looking good or not. Thankfully, it turned out just fine!
Scrappy Scrap Sun Showers
Earlier a reader mentioned that the names I’ve given the ripples in this series seem to have a rain theme. Nothing ‘rainy’ comes to my mind when I look at this one. Does anything occur to you? I’d be happy to swap out ‘Scrappy Scrap’.
