Studio Update


Soap, paint, and paper!
colorful painted backgrounds

I really enjoy creating painted background paper.
***
Just grab a bowl and a straw
fill with water (1/2 way)
squirt some dish soap
apply a few drops of acrylic paint and...
Blow!!

It is that easy. 





Now I have some playful paper to create with.
***

I've also been working on more
ATC's
(here is another sneak peak!)





Yes, I have joined several swaps.
So, I will keep you posted to as were these
 ATC's 
find a loving home.

this delightful journey of

While on vacation...
I came across this little gift shop.
I was so delighted to see that they carried 
Decorative tape
Cavallini Decorative Paper Tape:

It came in this super, cute tin box...
The tape is beautiful.
I am creating a collage art journal, so this will come in handy!
