Mini Abstract Art For Cards

Sometimes abstract pieces will add just the right amount of movement and color that you're looking for when you're working on a card. I created this mini abstract painting using water colors and acrylics. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it until I pulled out this fluorescent white card blank with the gold deckle edge -- then I knew exactly where it was going -- and 'Abstract Splash' ended up on a card and in my Etsy store.

Happy Girl Card Made From The Scrap Paper Pile

I've been trying to get back into the swing of things since I got back from my little vacation, and I've been playing in my scrap paper pile again. This card I've called 'Happy Girl', mostly because it pretty much sums up my post vacation mood.

Using Vacation Pictures For Cards

My family and I just got back from vacation. We were on the island of Jamaica enjoying the white sand beaches and the laid back lifestyle that the island has to offer. I took lots of pictures that inspired several card designs. These hammocks were truly calling my name... this card ended up in my GCU card store.
