I had a subscription to Gardeners World magazine.
They were piling up.
So ahead of the recycling bin I cut them up - looking for inspiring colours, structures, textures.
I photographed some of the best clippings (scraps?) and I've used them here and here.
I'm not sure what to do with all the other bits but I created a quick colour wheel as a start (not much blue!)
and of course some photo editing (with an eye on fabric scraps and stitching marks...)
