“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”
What do you do when you have a few extra minutes and want to create something? I usually make a page to my art journal, a few ATCs or then cards. Somehow scrapbooking layouts to me require more time even though I’m a fast scrapper, but all the other papercrafts make up a great though clearer!
To these two cards I used little scraps of patterned papers I had on my craft table. A great combination – to create something and to use those little pieces of paper into something useful! I just layered them randomly, mixing different patterns. I kept the color palette somewhat limited so that the end result wouldn’t be too busy.
After creating the backgrounds I still needed the vocal points to the cards. The texts I cut from an art related Canvas Corp paper. The main elements, the hearts, I cut free hand from two patterned papers and glazed over with Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze. To finish the cards I added a few stickers and some thread. The thread brings some extra texture and also softness to the cards.
Wishing you an artful day!
