Don't you just love the artwork?
It has no cover, and it is a bit rough. However, I think it will make great collage paper. The art work was so detailed and colorful!
I had received an email from the Springfield Art Association that someone was getting rid of a ton of art supplies. Maisie and I decided to check it out before we headed to Champaign for cello lesson. She had some nice stuff, but was selling it all in "bundles". Strange! $60 for an entire Rubbermaid stackable drawer that was taped shut so you couldn't see what was in it. Crazy! So Maisie and I drove around the corner and happened on another sale. I was going to drive on, but Maisie said we should check it out. Boy am I glad I listened! First, I found some miscellaneous chipboard albums.
misc. tins, clear stamp blocks, and a rectangle chipboard album cover.
Then..I found a Heidi Swapp New Orleans double sided alphabet stamps set $3, a complete alphabet/number/shape set in it's own little box $4, another script alphabet set $3, and some decorative flourishes that will be great for stamping backgrounds in my journals.
A close up of the alphabet stamp in it's own case.
A close up of the large alpha set by Heidi Swapp. They are foam, but I love the font!
Another alphabet stamp set called "Ransom" in it's own little case.
As far as I am concerned one can never have too many alphabet stamps. You never know what you will be in the mood to use. :)
Letter masks, and different rub ons.
More rub ons....
Lovely lace trims, and eyelet trims.
I recently found this antique very old postcard rack. I keep my vintage postcards on it, so then I can make color copies and use the image for whatever I am working on.
Here is a closer view, but it's kind of dark. It's a bad day for pictures, cloudy, cold and rainy.
Fun stuff! The Lord blessed me this weekend! I am so grateful!
I am looking forward to creating something with all my new finds. Here is the latest view of my desk. Right now I am working on a new layout using rainbow colors. My sister-in-law created the cutest card using rainbow colors and inspired me to do something using ROYGBV. Check out her blog at: http://www.kiwimumscraps.blogspot.com/
A view of my sewing desk. Check out my thread! I only had a few colors before, but I was at an antique store last weekend and found several bags of thread for $2. Thread's outrageously expensive! It will be just fine for what I use it for creating mixed media, even if it is old. I found some cute wooden spools too. I have an idea for something with those. More on that later.
Here is a view of my studio to date. Really not much different....but always something fun!
Hope you all have a great week. I am hoping it is sunny tomorrow so I can plant my container gardens.
