Using Torn Paper On Cards

I've recently opened a store on ArtFire and I decided to add some new cards that I did working with torn pieces of paper. For this one I chose a solid card blank that worked with the paper I had torn. I added the torn sheet to the front and embellished with a 3 dimensional sticker.

I've Been Tagged

I've been tagged! The very talented Etsy seller All About The Buttons has tagged me, so I'm going to keep this going.

Here are the rules:

~ Link to the person who tagged you

~ Post the rules on your blog

~ Write six random things about yourself

~ Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them

~Let each person know they've been tagged

OK-- here goes--

1. I taught school for many years but now that I've discovered the more creative side of life, I'm enjoying every moment of artistic expression.
2. I love spicy foods.
3. I love to travel, even though I don't get to do it often.
4. I'm a HGTV junkie, but will settle for a good episode of 'House' or 'CSI'.
5. I don't like to bake -- it's too labor intensive for me -- but I will devour baked goods!
6. I'm a huge fan of 'do unto others as you would have others do unto you.' I think that it makes the world a better place.

Now I'll pass the torch on to

ACEO At All About The Buttons On Etsy

I've been poking around one of my favorite stores on Etsy -- All About The Buttons --and found this ACEO (Art Cards,Editions, and Originals). All About The Buttons was inspired by this wonderful paper used in the background of the piece and then she added ribbons, beads, chain, and her signature element, buttons to add to the whimsy of her creation. This is a great piece that would add a soft touch of color to any setting.
