My Life Scripture

Philippians 4:4-7 (ESV English Standard Version) Holy Bible
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let the reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds through Christ Jesus.

Fashionista Collage Cards!

I created this collage one afternoon to provide material for making handmade cards.
The collage board began as a piece of canvas loaded with Yes Paste 
and assorted papers and embellishments.
Click this link to see how the collage board was created...
The collage board is a 'hodge podge' of papers and embellishments.  To find a 'scene' for use on cards, I cut a piece of translucent paper to position over the collage to find a suitable section.  Then cut a piece of cardboard the same size to use as a pattern to cut the section.
Using the translucent paper to find a suitable scene on the collage board.
Substituting the card board to use as a pattern to cut the section.
The section is cut using a pair of heavy duty shears.
The card front is created by choosing colored cardstock that is found in the 'scene'.  The edges of all the elements are inked with ColorBox chalk ink "Chestnut Roan".  The green piece of cardstock is torn to add interest.
I used 'Glossy Accents' as the glue to hold all the layers together.  The card front will be heavy and regular liquid adhesive may not be strong enough to hold everything.
I collect words and phrases!  These are a few of the sticker sheets that 
I have on hand to use on projects.
Completed card front
The phrase 'Amazing you' was white.  I used Chestnut Roan ink to color the phrase.
