Playing with Paper Scraps

Hi...I just wanted to share some collage pieces I made using almost nothing but scraps of papers I had been saving! I did use a few embellishments....I stamped the ruler on to sticky back canvas which makes it like a measuring tape.  I didn't measure anything, but I did sponge black ink from my ink pad to all the edges for cohesiveness.
These are so much better in pictures didn't come out very good. I hope you give collage a try...they are fun! Pick your favorite scraps, a couple of your favorite images (you can find some great images to print on Pinterest) then start arranging them on to a pre-selected piece of cardstock  or cardboard...let them overlap so you aren't cutting to precision...and have fun with it!

Thanks for stopping by!
I love hearing from you!!!

  1. Hi Lisa, I just love these vintage papers. This is beautiful.

  2. Great job...may be scraps, but you have made them look so them

  3. Wow, I love your scrap cards. GREAT idea since we crafters all seem to hoard scraps!!!

  4. Good feeling to use every little piece and have such a wonderful finished project. Like the aged edges.
    Blissful Blessings ;-)
