Recently I needed to make a birthday card for my bosses wife....and with alllll the papers and die cuts, and ribbon, and STUFF I have.....I went blank!!! Does this ever happen to anyone else??? I fiddled around for at least 2 or 3 hours....and finally I just re-made one of my favorites in different colors! I guess this is the whole idea of "sketches".....I finally "get it"....and then I went crazy and made several more!
Now I have some "spring " cards made up in advance....hurray!
And actually I think these could even be used for a baby card....and I'm gonna need some of those soon!
Thanks for stopping by....I appreciate your comments So Much!!!
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 person....my 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!
I wanted to share with you a few more fabric collage pieces I have finished...since it's about the only thing I have to share. I haven't been working on much anything else, but I had to make myself stop the other day to work on projects for my next class. I swear I think Im addicted...I have bought so much fabric and I even bought myself a new sewing machine! I think I need a 12 step program!
I think I am going to have to sell some of these....there is no way I can keep them all!
This one is on a tote bag, and I sent it to my sister....she loves it! Yea!
Thanks for stopping by....I would love to hear what ya think!
My passion for crafting goes back more than 20 yrs. I love it all..embroidery, watercolors, stamping, making mini books, and making paper flowers. I also love all things vintage, and love to use them in my crafting. I used to scrapbook when my children were small... but now my son is almost 14, and my daughter is almost 24. I currently teach classes at the Scrapbook N More in New Braunfels, and Stamp Antonio in San Antonio, TX.
