Pinwheel Background (video)

We see little changes each year to our favorite vacation spot - Hilton Head Island.  Stores open or close.  A new restaurant is a hot ticket.  They pave more bicycle trails.  I captured some of these this year including one we question.  They are adding a guard checkpoint just off the highway to where we stay.  The normal checkpoints are about a mile in.  This one is sure to back up traffic leaving us scratching our head at the idea.  Anyway, we love the new bike paths.

For the background of this page, I used a pinwheel pattern.  I thought I'd like to turn the photos on their edge a little and this led me to the triangles and finally the pinwheel design.  It's really easy to do as shown in the video and it really uses a lot of patterns from a 6x6 pad.

The papers are My Mind's Eye Collectible and match the papers from the bicycle page I did a few days ago.  The word Changes was cut on the Silhouette.  "Coming" is from a Simple Stories Sticker sheet.  I got in a few more of those stickers in my quest to work through some stash.  I'd better get busy as there is new stuff being released already and you know I'll want some new papers :-)
