You can count on mathematicians

I *love* alpha stickers :-) And numbers, come to that! But don't you just find that you end up with leftovers? Which is why it's SUCH a fab thing that mix-and-match titles look so good!

This is another one for my I Have To Confess project. I'm a mathematician and proud of it! I love numbers. I love number patterns. I even love algebra. And I know the first 35 decimal places of pi...


I printed pi to 44 decimal places around the edge of the page to create a border, then used foam stamps to fill the middle section with numbers in lots of different colours (mostly using the second impression - ie, stamping onto scrap paper first to remove some of the ink and give a more subtle image). I love the way the texture of the card shows though :-) Then I found a mixture of stickers, including a few chipboard ones, and a couple of rub-ons, to spell out the title - I inked the chipboard first so it would all be black and would stand out well! I used numbers instead of letters whenever possible, to fit the theme. Very quick and easy, this one!


And because I've used up lots of alphas, I've also met the challenge in the latest Something From Almost Nothing prompt! *happy dance*

I just fell in love with this in the forum...soooo clever!!

I'm not so much impressed with your retentive memory, although that is pretty amazing..as by your use of numbers as letters!!!

See...little things & little minds...KWIM?!!!!

This is fantastic ... but I've already told you that! Please may I 'borrow' the image for a post about maths I'm planning for my blog?

I love this... I used to love math, but when the kids' math became "new math" my brain stopped working. I guess... if you don't use it, you lose it. I thought I was good to know Pi's first 5 decimal points... but daaaa-haaam you're awesome! Great job!
