Have fun with your stash


I really wanted to play with my acrylic paints. I added a little of this and that and created the foundation for building the rest of the page. I have been holding onto the the Tinkering Ink paper and knew that I wanted to cut out the branches and bird. I pulled some scraps from my left-over collection of pattern papers and went to work. I have added some cheap bling from Jo-Ann's fabric store, plenty of rub-ons, some lace, and a little bit of this and that to finish off the page.

I am sure you have lots of yummy goodies in your stash -- go pull them out. Never be afraid to mix and match whatever you have -- it is all about telling your story and creating art. That is all that ever matters.

I love your style and I completely agree it is all about the creation. I am very new to scrapbooking and never really considered myself artistic so I am just learning as I go.
