Here are the first layouts for the Venetian Fan Swap. I cut out the template for the fan pages and used it as a mat to get a sense of the layout. All the images had to be cropped in some way and this makes it easy to see where pieces should be. Using the color copies** helps to see how the colors/patterns work together. I think I like where these are going so the next step is to us the actual collage sheets and then start embellishing them - with German Scrap, ribbon, glitter, etc.
*** color copies are for planning only - NOT to be used in actual work
