Large Format White Quilled Scrollwork Cat

Large Format White Quilled Scrollwork Cat

I have to say that creating a project using my own handcut paper was quite fun! I decided to test out my new Graphic White Cardstock strips in 1/2" by making a large format scrollwork cat last night. This paper is surprisingly versatile. It holds it's shape well and allows for tight coiling. I was surprised to see how well it created scrollwork given how thick it is. I will definitely be finding new ways to use this awesome paper.

This particular cat is 8x10 - the largest one I've made using this particular design. It's amazing how well the design adapts to various sizes without any sort of complex reconfiguring of scrollwork placement, etc. I think that if I'd used 1/4" strips the spaces wouldn't have filled up so nicely and so accurately. Using the 1/2" cardstock allowed me to use nearly the same exact design as I do when making the 1/4" 5x7's and 4x6's. 

For a twist, instead of mounting this cat on my typical white backgrounds, I dug out a cardstock pack I recently purchased that has a sort of grunge watercolor effect on it in shades of blue, teal, and gold. I like the look - it definitely changes it up a bit. 

Now that I've seen how well my graphic white performs on a larger project, my mind is zeroing in on other things I can use it for. The first thing that comes to mind is snowflakes. But the question is... how do I give them my own unique twist?
