Lotsa little stuff…

I’ve been helping out at the Library on Monday mornings sorting books. We are having a giant book sale in August and as we get donations the books have to be priced and sorted. I can’t seem to leave without buying books though. smile. This is what I came home with this morning-


Every Monday I go there with resolve NOT to BUY ANYTHING!!! Then I see something like these books and my resolve crumbles. Oh well, it is a good problem to have! smile.

While I was there I brought a collage I finished over the weekend to be sold in their bookstore-


And I liked it so much I made one for myself – I think I’ll be making more “multiples”, might as well, it’s the same amount of mess!


Sorry for the cruddy cell phone picture. Guess I didn’t take any with my camera. The saying says “delight in little things”. I love that saying. There is a lot going on in this collage – watercolor painting, stamping, embossing, paper cutting, doodling…fun stuff! I had so much fun I started messing around and making more background papers -


The colors don’t translate well but the top couple sheets are brown and blue – one of my favorite color combos. I also used some mica paints and they really add shimmer!


This is what I’m working on today. Done? Not done? Frame it? Use it as a card? I don’t know. We’ll see what percolates in my brain while I’m doing housework. This percolated in my brain as I was trying to fall asleep last night. Love it when that happens!

Happy Crafting!!!

Birdies and hearts dangling from little trees painted on book pages. O am in heaven.
