I honestly once studied the art of pinwheel making in screen printing class for my design degree (questionable as to if it was money well spent?). We were to screen twenty or so different designs and configure handmade pinwheels out of the best color and pattern combinations, a thumbtack and a #2 pencil. It was quite the sight to see eighteen twenty-or-so year old students blowing their pinwheels across campus!
So I basically took the pinwheel concept and came up with a flower using the color combination from Moxie Fab World's Color Inspiration for Cardmakers Week: Pretty Pastels. I found some rare-in-my household pink and purple patterned paper and let it do all the work. A first for me-no stamping!
