In the process of cleaning, sorting and tidying (Pick yourselves off the floor - prior to the "noughties" I did it all the time!) all sorts of things have emerged. For instance, in my Art Room I have found an entire medium sized drawer of kits. Some of the kits I bought when I first began paper arts, most have been gifts from friends. I have decided it is time (2007 - not this week, giggle) to either make them or pull them apart and use the components.
This 7 Gypsies circle book came with two sheets of double sided paper, the suede letters, the large burgundy flowers, walnut ink, some core shapes and some ribbon. I left out the shapes, added some more flowers and leaves and made a double sided quote book in around two hours. It is to be a birthday gift next week.
These cards are part of a six card kit one one of my lovely English Aunties gave me this Christmas ( Along with a lot of other treasures - aaah, I am so spoilt). This is a new technique for me and I will make it my in front of the tele/on the phone play for the next week. Another New Years plan was to make a stack of cards early in the year, and then to use them to keep in better touch with friends across the globe - so this kit will help me meet my goal.
Back to that sorting, tidying and cleaning ...
