I'm still playing about with apples on and off and am making a 6x6 inch square book incorporating different techniques using apples as the motif. I die cut 4 apples and stuck them to the page to make a pattern and then noticed the negative shape in the centre. I remember that this was an exercise when I took a creative sketchbooks class a few years ago and we were doing pattern making but it is not something I have played with since. However this time I traced the shape and cut a stamp from thin foam and stamped with it using Big and Juicy ink pads.
Then when I stamped it individually I realised it looked like a flower so I added a centre to it.
