Bargello

I have admired the look of the Bargello technique for a long time, but this is the first time I've tried it.
Finding the paper scraps was the easy part.  Stamping some texture on them was just as easy (I used seasonal branch and marvelous marigolds from A Muse Studio).  Cutting them to size and adhering them in place wasn't really hard, just time-consuming and very fussy.  If you try this technique, I will make two suggestions - first, make sure that the two pieces on which you are gluing your strips are completely coated with adhesive.  I used Aleene's Tack It Over and Over.  Second, use dark or black paper under your strips, so that if there are any gaps, they don't show badly.

The hardest part of this technique is embellishing it - you hate to cover it up!

I love your color choices and your tips- what a great idea to use dark paper underneath so gaps do not show..... The stamped pieces really add dimension. Beautifully done.
